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."

When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»
