MO Pitney Country Music

Saturday, September 12th 2015 - 12:00 am

The Mid-America Military Salute Organization is proud to announce that MO Pitney will bring his brand of Country Music to our event on Saturday September 12th at the Adams County Fairgrounds near Mendon, IL. MO will be headlining our main stage.

MO Pitney

MO Pitney was born in Chery Valley, Illinois. He began playing drums at age six and guitar at age twelve. He later played in a bluegrass band with his brother and a friend. Pitney later moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he signed to Curb Records and began working with record producer Tony Brown.

Pitney released his single “Country”, in December 2014, He co-wrote the song with Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin. Billy Dukes ofTaste of Country reviewed the single positively, saying that IMO isn’t making a statement, and ws not the sign of some traditional country revolution in 2015. But he’s a reminder ofhow good a simple country song sung by a man who believes in God and George Strait can feel. Johnny Nevin of Huffington Post also

reviewed Pitney’s music favorably, saying that ‘MO Pitney knows a couple ofreally important things about being Country, real Country. One ofthem is that he knows who he is, and that’s always going to be important, because it’s the only way anyone can keep becoming the person they really want to be. Just as important though, it seems like MO Pitney never forgets about everybody else, and how important they are too, It was the third most added country song its first week on radio. The song entered Top 40 on Country Airplay on the chart dated for the week ending rune 20,

2015, its nineteenth week on that chart,

MO’s Music Video for “Country” was ranked #8 on last weeks (July 22nd- July 28th) Great American Country Top 20 Countdown.

 

Mid-America Military Salute will hold its second annual event on Saturday September 12 th at the Adams County Fairgrounds near Mendon, LL. The event is held to “Honor Our Military, Our Veterans & Their Families”.

Mid-America Military Salute is a FREE event and open to the public and all Military, Veterans and their Families. The event will feature 10 bands on 3 stages, a car & bike show, military re-enactors, military vehicles and displays, a kids enteftainment stage, bounce houses, train rides, a big fireworks show and a few more surprises. Gates will open at noon and the event will wrap up around 1 IP1n.

Our main display for the event is called, “Portrait ofa Solider” by Cameron Schilling of Mattoon, IL.

The Portrait of a Soldier exhibit is a traveling display of hand-sketched portraits of fallen servicemembers from

Illinois who have been killed since September I l, 2001 in the Global War on Tenor. Altist Cameron Schilling, of

Mattoon, drew the first portrait in August 2004, after Amy SPC Charles Neeley, also ofMattoon, was killed in Iraq.

Schilling gave the sketch to SPC Neeley’s parents to convey his sympathy for their loss. In October 2005, while a student at Eastern Illinois University, Schilling decided to draw a portrait of every Illinois servicemember who has fallen during the Global War on Tenor.
