American Young are the American duo of Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson. Stone has been a solo act, then a successful producer and songwriter, while Osmunson was a founding member and the fiddle player of the duo Bomshel. As a duo, Stone and Osmunson have written songs for Kenny Chesney, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton and others. So they bring incredibly good country-pop credentials to their new song, ‘Better on You’, and they bring something else too: fantastic harmonies. It turns out each encouraged the other to become a singer – and the result is a pair of voices that sound made for each other.
American Young’s tightly crafted sound has won them fans not just at home but in Europe and the UK, where they are nominated for a British Country Music Award. Their debut album, AY, was released late last year in the US and is being released in the UK by Curb Records through Proper.
