NASHVILLE’S NEWEST LANDS COVETED 2015 SPOTIFY SPOTLIGHT
Nashville, TN – (Dec 16, 2014) – Curb Records is pleased to announce the release of “Country,” the debut single from Mo Pitney. The song, written by Mo along with songsmiths Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin, proclaims “Country” isn’t a place on a map, rather a place in the heart. Pitney explains, “we spent a long time simply answering the question, what truly is country to us? After a half day, we finished our explanation with what is now my debut single”. The single showcases Mo Pitney’s modern take on traditional country as well as his love and talent for songwriting. A true storyteller, every word he writes is meticulously chosen. Mo wrote or co-wrote every song on his upcoming album slated for a 2015 release.
Mo Pitney has been crisscrossing the nation garnering a lot of early support from media and radio alike including a standing ovation on the Grand Ole Opry.

Mo Pitney’s musical roots were born out of Cherry Valley, IL where music rang throughout the family home. Inspired by artists Johnny Cash, Keith Whitley, Randy Travis, Buck Owens and bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley, Mo carries a deep reverence for the history of country music. Pitney, often referred to as an old soul, is a humble twenty two year old storyteller of life through song. Often writing one to two songs a day, he is meticulous that the phrasing of every lyric "reflect who I am or how I'd speak." It's the same approach that this recording artist takes into the studio. Mo’s musical style represents a blend of the traditional and mainstream country sounds. Deeply rooted in the classic true country style that inspires him, paired with modern production, Mo delivers each song with a fresh, young, modern twist…in his own way, making the old new again. When not performing or writing music, Pitney spends his free time training his bird dogs, fishing, or hunting anything that’s in season.
