Illinois native Mo Pitney started playing music at a very young age, which could explain why he is so talented today. At age six he learned how to play drums and by age 12 he picked up his first guitar. Signed to Curb Records, Pitney released his debut single “Country” in 2014. The song describes the country singer perfectly, however, I had some questions for him myself.
