Mat Kearney: Young Love

I could not love Mat’s newest album more. Every song is relatable, personal, timeless, brilliant. I hope not to over play it and to love it forever. (I do have my favs.* absolute fav**)

1. *Hey Mama (about first meeting his wife (gorgeous all around) at Anthropologie—hello my favorite store!

2. *Ships In the Night (love the sound—layers at the beginning then into his trademark spoken-word. "Trying to find our way down a road we don't know.")

4. **Sooner or Later (:49–1:40min 1:54–2:08min OMG! I fell in love with his voice all over again.)

5. Chasing the Light

6. Learning to Love Again (love me some guitar)

7. *Down (I love songs that tell a story. :40–1:06min! This is a three parter about human struggles. Shout out to God.

8. *She Got the Honey (:39–1:07 great chorus; great one to blast in the car)

9. *Young Dumb and In Love (almost has a 50s flair 2:25–2:37min; great one to blast in the car; "If I'm honest I fell for you that first night." Annie, you are one lucky girl.)

10. Rochester (Michael P. Kearney, Mat's father's story; a life exposed, beautifully written. I wonder where his father is now.)

11. *Seventeen (I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that is a true Mat story (I searched and there is a high & 13 in Eugene). Are he and his wife expecting?! "Funny how the years switch around the tears.")

I’ve seen Mat in concert twice—he knows how to work it. What is it about musicians….
