MAT KEARNEY’S HIT ‘HEY MAMA’ INSPIRED BY HIS WIFE
Mat Kearney’s new album, “Young Love,” is available now and this time around he approached song writing a little differently. For example, with his current hit single, “Hey Mama,” he started it out with claps, stomps while dancing around his room, singing the hook. Sounds pretty simple, huh? Well we surely think so because the inspiration behind “Hey Mama,” as well as Mat’s giddiness was none other than his wife whom he met at a clothing store. Mat got hitched earlier this year and believe it or not, his wife wasn’t interested in Mat at first…it actually took a little coaxing. The funny part of the story was that she didn’t even know who Mat was until a month into dating and that was quite charming to him. In the end, he got the girl! According to Mat, “Young Love” is inspired by a lot of other things other than falling in love, such as desiring to be innocent, some songs even reflect back to his his high school years where you’re feeling giddy and emotional. Mat is so excited to be out on the road promoting the record and he hopes you take some time to come out and watch him. Spread the love! In the meantime, enjoy his acoustic performance of “Hey Mama” which definitely left us jammin’!
