I recently chatted with country singer, Mo Pitney, ahead of his performance at the Country2Country music festival, about his travels here in the UK, his approach to writing and what lies ahead for himself in 2018.

Hi Mo, so wonderful to be able to catch up with you again!

You Too!

You must be thrilled to be attending the Country 2 Country Festival in March and performing so many times while there…

So Thrilled… Our Last trip was amazing and we are ready for a duplicate!

Did you enjoy your trip over here last year along with your family while touring?

It was Amazing! By Far our favourite trip yet… Loved the people, the shows, the history etc.

What were the highlights of your visit?

Had A day off and we walked all around by Buckingham Palace and saw everything else in the area. It was amazing as well … then also the shows!

How do you find UK audiences compare with American country audiences?

There is a larger (what I call) listening audience in the UK … I never thought I would see so many rooms full of people who love the depth of the art form.

Your music is so pure and honest in a quietly powerful way, how do you find the writing process of putting songs like yours together?

Like breathing…when its right…

What are your plans for the rest of 2018 after your touring over here? 

Recording my next album right when I get back … and more touring here!
