“We are very excited to experience the European audiences again, we connect with them in such a special way, it’s hard to describe,” comments Jon Stone“The energy, the enthusiasm—It’s so much fun to be able to bring our passion to Europe, and the fans be so welcoming.”

Penning 11 of the 12 tracks, showcasing Osmunson and Stone’s natural songwriting abilities, the record features their first single, “Love is War,” along with tracks such as “God Sends a Train,” which speaks of the real-life devastation Osmunson endured when her mother was hit by a train but lived and eventually walked again, “Be Here,” which pleads for a moment of peace without the distractions of today’s world, and “Something to You,” which Osmunson fought back tears to record in the studio.

About American Young: American Young is comprised of songwriter/musician, Kristy Osmunson, and songwriter/producer, Jon Stone, who are complete opposites when it comes to personality, but come together to create hauntingly beautiful music stemmed solely from their own personal experiences. Both are established songwriters in their own right.

Kristy Osmunson, born and raised in Idaho, grew up playing the violin. She went from playing at honky-tonks to co-founding the electrifying fiddle-duo Bomshel and writing the Joey + Rory hit “Cheater, Cheater,” well on her way as a songwriter and solo artist before crossing paths with Stone.  
 
Jon Stone, originally from Oregon, is too country born and bred, for a while even working as a bull rider, before he was a solo act turned successful producer/songwriter including Kenny Chesney’s “Seven Days,” Blake Shelton’s “Kiss My Country Ass,” and Rascal Flatts’ “Me and My Gang.”
