So this is the first I’ve heard of Mo Pitney. But from the early sounds of it I feel like he could become one of my favorite new artists. He kind of had a good start when I saw a cover of Miami, My Amy on YouTube. That’s one of my favorites from the great Keith Whitley.
But now we have Mo’s first release, Country. Check it out and see what you think.
Country – Mo Pitney
This is a great song and it took on some risk with the title. It’s pretty confident to come out with a song called Country, but I think Mo has done a great job.
The song is about how we define country. Mo thinks that it’s not necessarily where you live or maybe even all the things you do. It’s the way you feel in your heart and the values you have about life and the people you love.
The lyrics are great, but what really stands out to me is the melody. It’s got a traditional country sound and I really like that. You know that’s my style if you’ve read more than a few of these reviews.
I really like this one. I’m curious to see how it does on the charts. It has the feeling of a song that could sneak on the scene here as we head into the New Year.
