Curb Records is pleased to announce the release of Mo Pitney’s new single, “Old Home Place”.

Although considered to be a rising star in the country music arena these days, Mo Pitney is quick to tell you his interest in music was first peaked with the sounds of banjos and bluegrass; especially that of the late J.D. Crowe. That interest spawned into a thriving career and the opportunity to re-create one of Crowe's classics in the most organic way possible - by accident.

The result is an all-star recording of "Old Home Place" featuring the talents of Crowe, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, Jerry Douglas, Jon Randall, Aubrie Haney, Guthrie Trapp and Barry Bales.

"The first time I ever heard 'Old Home Place' was on a J.D. Crowe and The New South album when I was a young kid," said Mo Pitney. "I learned that version and would play it with my dad and my brother when we were touring Bluegrass festivals. When I was in the studio to record my current album, 'Ain’t Lookin’ Back', I started playing the song to warm up. My producer, Jim 'Moose' Brown, said ‘Mo, let’s just play through that to get the jitters out and don’t freak out when the band comes in,’ and he recorded it."

RJ Meacham, SVP. Promotion at Curb Records says, "Mo is one of the most talented musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with, and that talent transcends the modern, mainstream country format. He's a rare artist whose songs can find their way not only on those 'down the middle' outlets playing today’s country, but who can also be just as at home at bluegrass, Americana, and beyond. 'The Old Home Place' is an incredible rendition with some of the biggest names from bluegrass playing with Mo, and is another step in us delivering Mo’s artistry to music fans everywhere."


Curb Records recording artist Mo Pitney received a standing ovation the very first time he performed on the iconic Grand Ole Opry stage. Named an “Artist To Watch” by Rolling Stone, Billboard and The Bobby Bones Show, Pitney has amassed 37 million streams since the release of his autobiographical debut, "Behind This Guitar".

The Illinois-native leans on the influences of traditional country stalwarts like Ray Price, Buck Owens, Roger Miller and Merle Haggard. His original song, “Ain’t Bad for a Good Ol’ Boy,” was featured on The Ranch (A Netflix Original Series Official Soundtrack). His sophomore LP, "Ain’t Lookin’ Back", is available now.
