Mo Pitney

 

After a long year of sitting at home due to COVID19 regulations, Mo and his band are back on the road and as happy as can be to be on stage again, Playing for a full house of fans to country music, he is shown above at the Truman Lake Opry Theatre near Tightwad, MO.  He performed for more than an hour of nonstop country favorites before returning to the stage for an encore performance of his two most – requested songs, “Borrowed Angel” and “Give Me Jesus.” The audience was also treated to an acapella solo performance of his four-year-old daughter, Evelyne Nadine. She belted out the words to a favorite hymn right on key, showing she can definitely keep up with Mommy and Daddy in the singing department. Mo’s wife, Emily, sang back up with perfect harmony.

“It’s been a real pleasure getting to stand up here and have my wife right beside me,” Mo said. “I can look over at her and realize this is the one I’m singing to so much of the time. We don’t get this chance often.”

Morgan Daniel “Mo” signed to Curb Records in 2014 and has two albums out, “Behind This Guitar” and “Ain’t Lookin’ Back. With more than 200k followers on Facebook and over a million views each of various songs on youtube.com,  he is proving he’ll be around for quite a while!
