If you’re not familiar with Mat Kearney’s music you need to watch the video for the song “Undeniable” (sorry it’s not just posted here, but I couldn’t find a version of the video on youtube that allowed embedding on other sites). If you want to listen to more of Mat’s music, check out his myspace page and then go to iTunes or your local record store to buy some of his music, it’s great stuff. Kearney is probably best known for having his songs featured on popular TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Laguna Beach, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill and Scrubs, among others; a special version of the video for his song “Breathe In, Breathe Out” was part of the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy Season 4 and it was also on the latest Grey’s Anatomy Soundtrack, Volume 3 (watch the video). Mat Kearney’s music explores the emotions of life and relationships while subtly discussing themes of faith. Take for example the song “Undeniable”… I realize it’s probably about a girl, but read the chorus (lyrics below) and try arguing that it’s not also a statement about the presence and greatness of God, similar to something you’d find in the Psalms (note: Kearney started as a Christian artist and this song was originally on his debut album).
It’s undeniable how brilliant you are
In an unreliable world you shine like a star
It’s unforgettable now that we’ve come this far
It’s unmistakable that you’re undeniable
— Mat Kearney, “Undeniable”
