I love music, but I have a terrible memory. I frequently hear a song that I like while in the car or in a store but never know who is singing. That’s why I love my Shazam app on my iPhone so I can keep track of songs I hear and love.
If you would look at my Shazam app right now, it would be a Mat Kearney love fest. I will hear his songs on the radio, sing along and then Shazam it so I know to download it once I get home.
Mat Kearney’s voice reminds me a lot of Chris Martin’s of Coldplay, but way better. He blends together a unique mix of folk, pop and hip-hop. His songs are catchy and it brings me back to days when I was younger, always clutching the CD Album Cover, singing along to the lyrics.
I was recently able to review Mat Kearney’s new album Young Love. You may have heard of the first song on the album, it’s his hit single, called “Hey Mama”.
I love this song! It’s fun and catchy. I love it even more after I researched Mat Kearney a little more. He wrote the song after first meeting with his now wife. He met her in a clothing store in Nashville and started composing the song in the car. How sweet is that?
The rest of the CD is a must listen. My personal favorite is “Ships in the Night”. This is an album that I’ll be listening to for a long time!
Mat Kearney is on on tour this fall (he’s coming to St. Louis and I will so be there!) and you can check out his tour dates to see if he’s coming to your city! I actually saw him play live at Blissdom this year and he was amazing. He was so personable and joked about being in a room of mom bloggers!
The album Young Love is available now on iTunes, Amazon and stores near you! The album debuted on iTunes as #1!
