Years before he toured the world as a platinum selling, boundary-breaking artist, Mat Kearney grew up in Eugene, Oregon. It was during those teenage years that he developed his love for classic songwriting — the kind that transcends generations and genres. Much has changed since those days in the Pacific Northwest. There are organic instruments, electronic samples, chill house grooves, tropical sounds, and collaborations with DJs like AFSHeeN, filous, and RAC all glued together by an emphasis on ageless hooks and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is one of the most adventurous, nuanced albums of his acclaimed career, filled with EDM drops one minute and acoustic guitars the next. He played many of them himself, beefing up the mix with digital samples and electronic flourishes. A major-label veteran whose previous albums were issued by Columbia and Republic, Kearney felt the need to create his fifth album with complete freedom.

Ladies, question for you: I find that the fellow ship has created an environment of chronic stress and chronic sleep deprivation that is absolutely affecting his libido. In childhood, that includes the majority. It's in the Mormon DNA. Based on what you have written about your GF, my opinion is that you should cut your losses and move on. Is it wrong to make those types of sacrifices. The Mormon university BYU is quickly falling due to these feminists. You might need to trade missionary lessons for research on her part, and we can suggest less scary resources. Not all of us are able to achieve that ideal but we are to strive for it. In some cases you can just simply live together with differing religions.
