A couple of years have passed since the BBC highlighted Mo Pitney as one of the upcoming country talents to keep a close eye on.
In that time he has released a stunning debut album, Behind This Guitar, and is finally making the long journey across the pond to come play for his UK fans.
With dates fast approaching, he stops in Leeds on September 2nd for a show at Brudenell Social Club, so we caught up with him to find out what songs make him...
''I Love" - Tom T Hall. Its just a smiling song and the first thing Em And I danced to at our wedding.
"Redemption" - Cash. There is death running in our veins, Life ran through one Man's veins... We are all wanting to know how to tap into that life whether we know it or not.
"Seized By The Power Of A Great Affection" - Andrew Peterson.
