When Mo Pitney sings "let me tell you about country" in his debut single, he's doing more than telling. He's showing. Appropriately titled, the song "Country" is as much positioning statement as introduction. In three minutes and 16 seconds, it is almost precisely who he is in word and deed. The vocal delivery, storytelling, musicianship and reflections of his outdoor lifestyle - as well as faith, family and patriotism - offer a spot-on portrayal. Joined by early fan favorites "Clean Up On Aisle Five" and "Come Do A Little Life," the song carves an unmistakably country yet completely fresh groove for the genre. In short, it sounds like nothing else, but absolutely belongs.

Loaded Goat is a mad mash of bluegrass, old-time, honky-tonk music. To activate: Flick a little moonshine in it's face and get ready for some banjo for your ear-holes. Playing a predominantly original catalog of heartbreak and headache, Loaded Goat will occasionally surprise with the surprising cover song. Loaded Goat is great for bars, campfire jams, weddings, cowboy saloon shootouts, Rural Grit Happy Hour, and more, more, more.

A native of the small northeastern Louisiana town of Bastrop, Dylan Scott grew up with a passion for music in general, and country music in particular, and a deep and profound love and respect for the outdoors. More than anything else, those two traits define who Dylan Scott is and what gives him direction and purpose in life. Dylan's father, a former guitar player for country legends Freddy Fender and Freddy Hart, taught Dylan at an early age the basics of singing and playing guitar and thus introduced him to the world of music.

Movie in the Park
Sponsored by The Kearney Clinic
In a city inhabited by anthropomorphic animals who have abandoned traditional predator/prey roles in favor of civilized coexistence, uptight rabbit police officer Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) is forced to work with charismatic fox con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to crack a major case involving the mysterious disappearance of some carnivorous citizens. But when a few of the missing critters reappear, having reverted to pre-enlightenment savagery, it exposes existing anti-carnivore prejudice among the city's herbivores that threatens to damage the fabric of their diverse metropolis. Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia L. Spencer, Bonnie Hunt, Alan Tudyk, Don Lake, and John DiMaggio also lend their voices. Author: Violet LeVoit
