Newcomer Mo Pitney hasn't even gone on his radio tour yet, but the singer took a few minutes to stop by the Taste of Country Nights studio to chat and play a few songs. And he stopped by just in time for the Veterans Day edition of the show!

Pitney is a new singer straight from Music City, and in a chat with host Sam Alex, he reminisced about when he would first travel down to Nashville to play jam nights, which are open to the public, at Station Inn.

"I remember I used to travel down here when I was 12 or 13 years old and go there with dad and do an open jam with everybody," he tells Alex, adding that he would, "just walk in and pick. Never met 'em before in your life and you say, 'Hey y'all know this song?' and they'd say, 'Yeah.' ... It's fun."

Pitney says people don't recognize him from his childhood, but they do remember him. Now that he's gearing up for a radio tour, he probably has a little less time to play the Station Inn -- after all, he's busy playing, meeting fans and writing some music. He's even selected his first single -- a song called 'Country' -- which is one he wrote with Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin. Listen to Taste of Country Nights on Nov. 11 to hear it!

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
