Mo Pitney revels in the thrill of lasting love in “Right Now With You,” a fresh track from a new school classic-country stalwart.
Co-written by the singer with Will Nance and Paul Overstreet, Pitney says the smiling love song was inspired by own experience — and how the best mature relationships never lose their spark. With his strong-but-tender vocal leading the way and a timeless sound underneath, the rising talent tells his significant other that every day together feels just like the first time.
“[My wife] Emily and I had been out in a crowd of people somewhere, and felt overwhelmed that I just needed to kiss her in front of everybody,” Pitney explains. “It felt good to be able to say that I still want to do that after we have been doin’ this for a while, so I brought the idea in. I’ll never forget it. Paul was just lookin’ over his coffee cup with his eyes closed singing what I sang to him and he started saying ‘Now’ after every line that I gave him. He made this really uninteresting idea interesting immediately.”
“‘Cause I still wanna kiss you in a crowd now / Sing my love songs out loud now / Let everyone that I know now know I wrote ‘em bout you / Guess all I’m tryin’ to say now / Girl, I don’t wanna miss a day now / And there ain’t nothin’ like right now / With you,” goes the heartwarming chorus.
“Right Now With You” is part of Pitney’s upcoming album, which is expected to arrive this year.
