Mo Pitney‘s sophomore album, Ain’t Lookin’ Back, will be released worldwide on August 14th, 2020 via Curb Records, featuring the single ‘Ain’t Bad For A Good Ol’ Boy‘
Produced by GRAMMY-winning songwriter & producer Jim “Moose” Brown, the highly-anticipated follow-up to Pitney’s debut speaks to the idea of rebirth—shedding your past and moving forward into a future filled with grace and forgiveness. Combining his love of traditional country music in the vein of Ray Price, Buck Owens and Roger Miller with his affinity for singer/songwriters like Randy Newman and James Taylor, Pitney puts his spin on 13 original tracks that seamlessly merge acoustic-driven country, bluegrass and soulful blues with tender, heartfelt lyrics.
“I wanted to be completely open-minded while recording this album. It was important for me to meld all my influences of the past that represent who I am as an artist today, hopefully to make one complete thought and to make something new. The end goal was to shut out all other voices, close our eyes, and create something that came from the heart,” shares Pitney of the making of the new album. “I’m looking forward to taking this body of work that is completely me and sharing it with the world. I’m excited to see people’s reactions.”
A powerhouse list of more than two dozen songwriters worked to bring Ain’t Lookin’ Back to life, including Bobby Tomberlin, Paul Overstreet, Tim Nichols, Matt Jenkins, Trevor Rosen, Matt Ramsey, Matt Alderman, Billy Montana, Randy Montana, Jimmy Yeary, Mark Nesler and Tom Douglas, among others. Pitney holds co-writing credit on seven tracks.
