In a classic case of opposites attract, American Young finds two celebrated songwriters — Kristy Osmunson and Jon Stone — joining forces, bringing together a set of influences that run from classic country to modern pop. The result is American Young's genre-bending debut album, a self-tiled record filled with everything from entwined harmonies and fiddle solos to digital samples.

“Jon’s a perfectionist and a finisher,” explains Kristy, a classically-trained violinist who crossed paths with her future bandmate at a Lee Brice performance in Nashville. “He works harder than anybody I know. I’m all about the vibe and the feel of the moment."
 
Jon and Kristy couldn't be more different, she drives a Chevy volt, he rides a Harley; she grew up surrounded by miles of country wilderness, he was raised in the city, but the two complement one another, turning their 180-degree differences into a perfect circle. 
 
"The thing that’s so inspiring for us both is that we’re so different," Jon adds. "Everything that drives me crazy about her makes her a star. She’s everything I wish I could be, but once we’re together we're like Voltron. It becomes selfless; all our needs become secondary too American Young."
 
Releasing August 5 on Curb Records, American Young's debut will be supported by a string of American and international shows, with the band spreading their brand of country music far beyond their homeland.
