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 warms hearts with empathetic thoughts – Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno. Their new release, "Echoes In The Valley" features mostly songs written by Fleck and Washburn, banjos, Washburn's strong vocals and very little else.... »»»
