My Review:

I was so excited when I found out that I would be able to review Mat Kearney's new CD, Young Love care of One2One Network.  I have been a fan of Mat's for years, and was eagerly awaiting his new release.  And, with the hurricane this past weekend, I was able to listen to the entire CD when I had to leave CT and drive to MA to stay with family while I don't  have power for the next week.  Seconds after popping the CD in the CD player, I began to hear Hey Mama, and the stress I was feeling melted away.  I fell in love with this song, as well as all the other tracks.  Since listening to the CD the other night, I haven't been able to stop listening to the CD when I have been in the car.  And, with another trip to check on my home in CT today, and to clean out my fridge there, I was able to listen to the CD again, on the way down and back.  Even my 1 yr. old Savannah was dancing and grooving in her car seat.  I think Mat has another fan on his hands!

If you haven't heard Mat's music, you are missing out.  Check out Hey Mama just to get a taste of Mat's music style.  I bet after you watch his You Tube video you too will be hooked and will be heading to iTunes or your local store to pick up his CD.
