Up and coming country music star Mo Pitney will headline the entertainment at the 2015 Mid-America Military Salute on Saturday, September 12. Mo spent some time with us on KICK-FM to talk about the event and his blossoming career.

The Cherry Valley, Illinois native is a throwback to the traditional style of country music, even at the young age of 23. His single "Country" spent several weeks on the country charts recently. Mo will take the stage at 9:15 p.m. at the Mid-America Military Salute, going on throughout the day at the Adams County Fairgrounds. The event is free to get in to.
