Olsen looks for "Good Time"

Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Steven Lee Olsen today premiered his music video for his song, "Raised By A Good Time," on Rolling Stone Country.

The video for the co-penned autobiographical anthem was directed by Mason Dixon.

"'Raised By A Good Time' is a song I wrote a few years back with one of my best friends, Cary Barlowe," Olsen said. "I think everyone has those memories from growing up where you and your friends were out, carefree, maybe past curfew, feeling like you were all getting away with stuff and just being young. I really look at those days as moments that helped shape who I ultimately became, and I wanted the video to reflect the spirit of that."

Signed to Sony Music Nashville in 2014, Olsen co-penned "Cold Like That" off of Garth Brooks' "Man Against Machine."

Olsen has enjoyed 2 top 20 hits on Canadian radio, as well as nominations for a Canadian Radio Music Award for his single, "Now" and his single "Make Hay While The Sun Shines."

Concert Review: Carlile brings thoughtfulness – Brandi Carlile returned to the GRAMMY Museum for the third time, and it's easy to see why she's always invited back. The evening began with GRAMMY Executive Scott Goldman interviewing Carlile on a pair of stuffed chairs, which was followed directly by a brief set of live songs. The interview portion was informative, while Carlile's... »»»
Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
