Mat Kearney Soars High: Serenades Passengers on Southwest Airlines

Mat Kearney Soars High:

Serenades Passengers on Southwest Airlines

 

Mat Kearney, no stranger to packed houses, recently crossed one item off his bucket list – to perform on a full airplane. On a recent Southwest Airlines flight last week, fans were treated to an impromptu performance by Mat Kearney. Mat reflected on the performance, “I’ve always actually wanted to pick up my guitar in the middle of a flight and just walk down the aisle and play songs, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually gotten the chance to do it.” Check out the video of him performing “Nothing Left To Lose” below.

Mat Kearney’s New Single “Hey Mama” – Out Now!

Mat Kearney’s New Single “Hey Mama” is Out Now;
First Single from New Album – Young Love – due out August 2011 on Universal Republic

Mat Kearney’s new single “Hey Mama” is out now and is the first single from his new album – Young Love – due out August 2011 on Universal Republic. “Hey Mama” is a catchy, clap-inducing tune perfect for summertime drives, so it’s no surprise that it’s already taking off on commercial radio.

The Nashville by way of Portland musician recorded Young Love in Nashville with his longtime friend and producer Robert Marvin as well as Jason Lehning. The new album is Mat’s fourth full-length studio release and the follow up to 2009’s City of Black & White.

Audiences are probably already familiar with Mat’s infectious tunes as he’s had several hit songs from past releases including “Nothing Left To Lose,” “Undeniable,” “Closer To Love,” and “All I Have.” And he seems to be a favorite among music supervisors who have featured his songs in Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, NCIS, Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, and Gossip Girl among many others. In addition, he’s toured with several notable artists including John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Keane and Train.

To get fans ready for the new album, Mat will be hitting the road on June 13th with Owl City for a complete US tour (visit http://www.matkearney.com/ for all confirmed dates). And check out the first single from his new album now. “Hey Mama” is available through all digital partners and his new album Young Love is due out in August on Universal Republic.
