Justin Gaston Previews His New Movie


As the star of the new film God’s Country Song for the faith-based Pure Flix video streaming service, daytime alum Justin Gaston (ex-Chance, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; ex-Ben, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) gets to combine some of the most important things in his life — acting, music, and his faith.

Gaston headlines the original film as Noah Bryan, an up-and-coming country music star with a drinking problem. Noah is about to get his big break when he receives some shocking news: He has a 6-year-old son he never knew about, and little JJ’s mother has just passed away, leaving Noah with full custody. Will Noah continue to chase his dream of country music stardom or be open to God’s path for his future?

Speaking to Pure Flix about his character, Gaston says that Noah is so caught up in trying to ‘make it’ that “he’s forgotten where he came from and his moral compass a bit. Which is very easy to do, I feel, when you’re not grounded in [a] community.” Because Noah is having issues with his own father, “that’s hindering his openness to God,” Gaston adds.

The actor — who is married in real life to Y&R’s Abby, Melissa Ordway — shared that Noah’s relationship with his own father is partly why the guy has no clue how to be present for JJ. “Noah is at this crossroad where he has to decide if he’s going to step up and become a man and raise this child,” Gaston explained, “or pursue his own dreams over everything else.”

Co-starring Muriel Hemingway and John Laughlin as Noah’s parents, God’s Country Song is a feel-good story of fatherly love, faith, redemption, and music. It features 15 original new songs, including the theme “Being The Man” which Gaston performs. “Beyond proud of Justin and everything he’s been up to,” praised Ordway on Instagram of her hubby. “From new music to the premiere of his new movie with Pure Flix… his talent amazes me. I’m a big fan!”

God’s Country Song premieres on Friday, June 16, on Pure Flix, just in time for Father’s Day. Check out the trailer for the movie below!
