Mat Kearney Album review

A few weeks ago, I was provided a free copy of Mat Kearney's new album called Young Love to listen to and review. I gladly accepted the invitation even though I had never heard of the artist. I am not sure what possessed me to, but I did.

When I received the CD I was hesitant to listen. Since misery likes company, I made my family listen with me. I was actually surprised that Mat Kearney's music was kinda catchy. It is upbeat and not too bad. I am not sure that I would go seek out his new music, but I would definitely know who he is if I heard his songs on the radio.

Young Love has 10 tracks. The first track is the first single to be released and it is called Hey Mama. Surprisingly, it is kinda catchy. You can watch a clip of the video with this link:
