Newcomer Mo Pitney's debut single is all about "country" and what that word really encompasses. For many fans and even Pitney himself, country is simply a state of mind.
"Country" is his first official release to radio and has been steadily gaining spins on the airwaves. The relatable message is one that's quickly connected with country fans of all ages. There are no gimmicks or talk of tailgates and tan lines here. His songs describe real life situations that we've all been through and feel like an easy conversation with a friend you haven't seen in awhile.
Although it's hard to believe from the maturity of his voice, Pitney is only 22 years old. He's been signed to Curb Records since 2014 and his debut single has been rapidly climbing the charts since its initial release in February. In fact, Mediabase reported that "Country" was the third most added track on country radio on its first week of release, which is an impressive feat for even already established artists. When Pitney made his Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this year, he performed both "Country" and his cleverly written story-song, "Clean Up on Aisle Five", to a crowd that rewarded him with a standing ovation.
Pitney just wrapped up recording his debut album, which he plans to release later this year. Until then, he'll be out on the road for a handful of tour dates across the country through August. For more information on Mo Pitney's music and a full list of tour dates, visit his official website.
