RUSSELL MOORE’S VOICE HAS RANGE, figuratively and literally. Depending upon the song, his voice can perk you up, make the corner of your eyes get misty or create a smile so broad that you hope your teeth have been well brushed. Had he chosen a big Stetson hat, a snappy shirt with a bolo and a license-plate-sized belt buckle holding up some pre-washed jeans when he was younger, he might have found a place next to some of country music’s brightest talents for the past 26 years. Instead, Moore opted for an authentic genre, bluegrass, where ostentation is on permanent vacation and the folks involved tend to be genuine and unentitled. Bluegrass allows Russell Moore to be himself.
