Mat Kearney’s third album, Young Love, was recently released and it has quickly become one of my favorites. Debuting at the #1 spot on iTunes, the catchy tunes and great lyrics remind me a lot of a peppier version of Jack Johnson. If you think you haven’t heard him before, you definitely have – his music is often featured on popular TV shows like 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, NCIS, and numerous others.
The first single from this album is “Hey Mama” – a really fun, upbeat song that I liked right off the bat, plus, my kids liked it too (so we can actually listen to “grown-up” music in the car!).
Check out the video for “Hey Mama” below and let us know what you think!
Mat’s on tour this fall and playing nearly 40 shows across the US and Canada. Unfortunately, he’s not coming to Long Island but will be relatively nearby at Webster Hall in NYC on October 28 (tickets are on sale now).
