Faith, family, patriotism. These are the values that country newcomer Mo Pitney sings about. Mo, the Illinois native who is just 22 years old, has already been compared to a young Randy Travis. And that's probably because it's been awhile since we've had a budding country star debut the kind of syrupy, milky vocal tone like Randy's. There's a purity in Mo's voice, and that seems to be what people find most appealing about listening to him sing. 

"The idea for the song came from a writing session that I had with [songwriters] Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin," explains Mo about his latest song 'Country'.

When asked what inspired the hit, he replies, "My heores-- Roger Miller, Randy Travis, Ray Price, , Keith Whitley... what we thought their core values were when they approach music and the word country. Bill said, 'All those people sing songs about real life... that's what you do well.

"Country ain't even a place on the map / It's a place in your heart," one of the lines in the song tells us.

Mo puts it simply at the end of the interview, featured below: "When you love real stuff, you're country."

See also: Mo's performance at the Grand Ole Opry back in 2014. Just 21 years old at the time, his easy-going stage presence will surely catch you off guard. He received a standing ovation for his performance of 'Country', and his other hit song, 'Clean Up on Aisle 5'.

'Country' (by Mo Pitney)

Have you ever picked guitar on your front porch
in the morning as the sun was risin'?
Or followed your dog down to the river
and ran into an ole’ baptizin'?
Do you think to pull off on the side of the road
when that big black hearse is passing?
Have you ever helped someone in need
without them even asking?
We do that in the country,
Let me tell you 'bout country..

Country can be in the middle of a city
Country can be on a farm,
Country ain’t even a place on map,
it’s a place in your heart..

Have you ever hitched a ride to Music City
just to see an Opry show?
Would you drive across the country
to listen to some country?

Country can be in the middle of a city
Country can be on a farm,
Country ain’t even a place on the map,
it’s a place in your heart.

Have you ever been there at the courthouse square
for the parade on the 'Fourth of July'?
with a tear on your face and a lump in your throat
as you watch ole’ glory go by,
Or sat thru a service where they played tabs
for a soldier who never came home?
Or looked in the sad brown eyes of his momma
as she touched his name on that stone?
He fought for his country
and died for his country
I love my country..

Let me tell you 'bout.. country.
