Justin Moore just celebrated his 31st birthday Tuesday, but turning another year older isn’t stressing him out. In fact, Moore has a very practical outlook on aging: “Getting old beats the alternative!” he tells PEOPLE.

“I love the age I am right now,” says the father of three. “Do I want to get old? No, but do I not want to get old? No.”

Moore, who’s currently touring with Miranda Lambert, says he also didn’t have any meltdowns over turning the big 3-0 last year. “Hitting my thirties didn’t bother me one bit. I think one of the reasons is I m in probably in the best shape of my life. I m a lot healthier than I ve ever been – and I m happy.”

It also helps that he’s not seeing any of the effects of aging in the mirror yet. “I’m not noticing any wrinkles and I ve got all my hairs too thankfully so far,” he says. “I m sure I don t look as dapper as I once did when I met my wife, but I think she s okay with it so I m happy with it if she is.”
