Mat Kearney Young Love {Review}

Young Love is Mat Kearney's recently released third album. Mat has had songs played on T.V. shows like 30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, and NCIS just to name a few. He has been on tour with The Fray, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, and Keane. His album debuted at #1 on iTunes and has been in the #5 spot on Rock Charts. So why have I never heard of him? Hopefully you have heard of him and have been enjoying his other albums. I will need to locate and listen to these other albums because if they are anything like Young Love, they will be fantastic.
Young Love starts off with "Hey Mama" which is a song about Mat's first meeting with his wife at an Anthropologie store where she was working. My little girls were immediately up and dancing and told me what a good song it was. To my delight the whole album wasn't just good, it was great. We continue to listen to Young Love over and over enjoying Mat's beautiful music.
Starting this month Mat will be playing almost 40 shows across the U.S. and Canada. Tour dates are listed below. Don't forget to check out the cool widget above with links to Mat's website, twitter, facebook, music video, concert tickets and a whole lot more.
