Following in the footsteps of Carrie Underwood who sang about baptism in her #1 single "Something in the Water," Mo Pitney too sings about baptism,country life and more. Recently signed to Curb Records, Mo Pitney is touted as the next George Strait and Alan Jackson. He is set on bringing country back to the genre with his new single "Country."
The debut single, co-written with Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin, is Pitney's mission statement about being who you are and standing up for God, Christian values, and integrity.
"Have you ever picked guitar on your front porch in the morning as the sun was rising," he asks to begin 'Country,' his first single on Curb Records. "Or followed your dog down to the river and ran into an ole baptizin'." Every note of this song is as sincere as a 6-year-old's rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance.
"Do you think to pull off on the side of the road / When that big black hearse is passing / Have you ever helped someone in need without them even asking / We do that in the country / Let me tell you 'bout country."
"Have you ever been there at the courthouse square / For the parade on the Fourth of July / With a tear on your face and a lump in your throat / As you watch ol' Glory go by," he sings, going up an octave on "by."
