Mo Pitney Selects ‘Boy & a Girl Thing’ as New Single [LISTEN]
Mo Pitney has selected "Boy & a Girl Thing" as his latest single. The uptempo tune is from his upcoming new album.
Pitney and Don Sampson co-wrote the tune, which features clever lines like, “He’s gross, she’s got cooties / That’s just how it’s supposed to be / He hates dumb tea parties, and she won’t climb a tree / It’s a boy and a girl thing / A girl and a boy thing." Press play on the video below to listen to an acoustic version of the song.
"Boy & a Girl Thing" follows Pitney's debut single, "Country," which he co-wrote with Bill Anderson and Bobby Tomberlin.
"We spent half the day just talking about life in country music," Pitney recalls to Rolling Stone Country. "What country music was, what we thought it was and what it meant to us. We talked about Bill's long life, my short life and Bobby's medium life, and how, even with all the age difference, we were all pointed to the same artists. I'm an old soul, and I always lean towards the older artists: Ray Price, Buck Owens, Roger Miller, Merle Haggard."
As Pitney puts the finishing touches on his freshman record, he insists that he isn't worried about chart success or album sales.
"I don’t think I ever tried to plan what my career would look like," he tells Nash Country Weekly. "It’s not about praise or even having No. 1 songs. My goal is always to play music and make a living doing that. I have put most of my energy into treating people right and staying true to myself and my faith.”
