Mo Pitney~ Doors at 8pm

Born and raised in Cherry Valley Illinois, Mo Pitney, is truly a small town country boy. He began his career in music at the age of 12 when he picked up his dad’s guitar and asked him to teach him a few chords, his dad obliged, never dreaming just how far he would take it from there. After mastering the guitar, he went on to teach himself to play the banjo, bass and drums. His music has been highly influenced by bluegrass artists such as Tony Rice and J.D. Crowe. Mo spent countless hours listening to old vinyl records and cassette tapes over and over until he got every lick exactly right.
To hear him sing, you would never imagine you were listening to someone just 20 years of age. Vocally inspired by artists such as Keith Whitley, Johnny Cash, Randy Travis, Buck Owens and Daryle Singletary, Mo has a deep baritone sound all to himself, matured well beyond his years. In the words of John Rich, after hearing him sing for the first time in the studio, “Boy, with a voice like that, you shouldn’t be doing anything but makin’ records”. At a Writers in the Round charity event with Darryl Worely and Wynn Varble, Mo sang one of his original songs ”Hang Out With Me”. Worley, so impressed by Mo’s voice and sound, asked him to open for his annual Tennessee River Run, which was scheduled for the very next day.
Currently, Mo is working on a new album with Curb Records, working on making it a perfect blend of traditional and mainstream country sound. Mo enjoys writing songs that reflect what he’s all about: Young love, faith, family, friends and his love for the outdoors. Deeply rooted in the classic true country style that he cut his musical teeth on, Mo has the ability to deliver each song with a fresh, young, modern twist…in his own way, making the old new again.
When he is performing or writing music, Mo spends his free time training his bird dogs, fishing, or hunting anything that’s in season. He skins his own bucks and runs his trotlines. Mo Pitney is the real deal…a country boy that could quite possibly change country music in a very big way
