HIN First Look: Mat Kearney

1320256544722-334x1000000.jpg

There are many reasons to love Hear It Now artist Mat Kearney.

His lyrics, his laid back style, even his sweet, soulful voice. But I think my favorite is how nice he is! Mat Kearney is what you might call
“salt of the earth.” Recently, Mat stopped by the Channel One clubhouse to play an acoustic version of “Hey, Mama” for me and some of the other Channel One folks.

Not only did he politely ask for coffee (no sugar, no milk) he was totally down for an impromptu interview.
After the jam session, I was lucky enough to attend Mat’s concert at Webster Hall in New York City.

I usually don’t like to play favorites, but I can’t recommend Mat Kearney and his music enough. Look out for the video from his time at the studio soon — he has some great advice for those of you hoping to break into the music biz.

"Hey Mama" Lyrics

She don't know what she wants to be
With all the pictures in the magazines
Holding hands when she's mad at me
'Cause she don't wanna go; don't wanna go
I met her at Anthropologie
Her purple boots and her golden dreams
Standing there like a TN Queen
Singing don't look at me; don't look at me
Singing Oh Oh won't you help me sing this song?
Singing E E E she don't ever wanna go to sleep
Singing Hey Mama don't want no drama just a kiss before I leave (ohhhh)
Hey Lady don't say maybe you're the one that I can believe
Hey lover don't want no other,
Finger for my ring

Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama

Oh
I could see it in her Cherokee eyes  
Those baby browns and her golden thighs
What are you doing for the rest of your life cause I Don't wanna go don't wanna go

Singing Oh Oh won't you help me sing this song?
Singing E E E quit your playing like a mystery
Singing Hey Mama don't want no drama just a kiss before I leave (ohhhh)
Hey lady don't say maybe you're the one that I can believe
Hey lover don't want no other,
Finger for my ring 
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama

Oh oh oh oh

We couldn't be more opposite 
I'm hard to please and she's hard to get
You're Mississippi and I'm Oregon 
You're she tanned and I'm porcelain
Singing Hey Mama I don't want no drama just a Kiss before I leave
Hey lady don't say maybe you’re the one I can believe
Hey lover I don't want no other
Finger for my ring 

Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Hey mama hey hey mama
Oh oh oh oh oh
