Mat Kearney has delivered another landmark album with his latest release Just Kids through Inpop/Republic/Aware Records. His fifth studio album debuted in the Top 20 on Billboard's Top 200 and took the No. 2 spot on Billboard's Christian Chart.

In conjunction with the release, Mat's recently performed his current single "Billion" on the Today show and graced the cover of CCM's March issue, available now.

As fans have been showing their support of Just Kids, critics also are sharing their excitement of Kearney's work:
"If Just Kids proves anything, it is that Kearney is still crafting albums that are unrelenting in their charisma."
–Absolutepunk.net

"Mat Kearney delivers nostalgia perfection on Just Kids. His lyrics are intimate, his emotions are infectious and his feel-good pop will make you dance."-NewReleaseTuesday.com

"Lyrical depth, clever production, and Kearney's impeccable sense of melody and hook all combine to make Just Kids an excellent example of a pop album done the right way, and it may be Kearney's best work since he first burst onto the scene."- JesusFreakHideout.com

"Experimenting with a cacophony of sounds from 80s-pop to rustic folk to contemporary EDM to 90s-soul-rap, there isn't a dull moment on this record.  And to add further zest to already a spicy record are the vivid images and picturesque descriptions.  All of these thus make Just Kids a gorgeous three-dimensional sonic autobiography."-Hallels.com

Just Kids is the follow up album to his 2011′s Young Love record that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Digital Chart and #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Known for ubiquitous anthems such as "Nothing Left to Lose", "Hey Mama", and "Ships in the Night", with over a million albums sold, his music has been featured in countless television shows and films ranging from Soul Surfer and Parenthood to The Closer, NCIS, 30 Rock, and Vampire Diaries. His 2006 major label debut Nothing Left to Lose has sold over 450,000 copies, while 2009's City of Black & White hit #13 on the Billboard Top 200. In between it all, he supported everybody from John Mayer to Keane on the road.
