Mat Kearney, "Young Love" Album Review

Mat Kearney's third album, Young Love, hit stores last week, debuting on the #1 spot on iTunes Album and Rock charts and is currently sitting at #5!

His hit single "Hey Mama" is one of my new favorites! This song is so upbeat and catchy - you can't help but fall in love with it! I enjoyed the whole album and have been listening to it non-stop since I received it for review. My favorite songs on the album are "Hey Mama", "Young Dumb and In Love", and "Ships in the Night".

Mat Kearney has a wonderful voice that I don't even know how to describe, but it has a very unique masculine sounds - like earthy, rustic, and smooth all at the same time. His voice and musical style reminds me of Jack Johnson, John Mayer, or Maroon 5 (which are all favorite artists of mine!) I really enjoy listening to this album on the elliptical because it motivates me and keeps me going - the songs are so catchy that I can't help but keep moving to the beat! I also find the lyrics to be very meaningful and heartfelt, and definitely relate-able.

If you aren't familiar with Mat's music you've probably heard some of his previous hits on your favorite TV shows. Past songs have appeared on 30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, NCIS, and numerous other television shows. Mat's been winning over crowds on tours with everyone from John Mayer and Sheryl Crow to Keane and The Fray.

Check out the "Hey Mama" music video above for a sample of Mat's music, and if you like what you hear, check out the Young Love album! I highly recommend it.
