Years before he toured the world as a platinum selling, boundary-breaking artist, Mat Kearney grew up in Eugene, Oregon. Kearney will return to his hometown with a performance at The Shedd Institute. It was during his teenage years in Eugene that he developed his love for classic songwriting, the kind that transcends generations and genres. He'd strum chords on a friend's acoustic guitar, paving the way for a career that would eventually take him far away. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of his breakout album, City of Black & White, Mat Kearney has decided to revisit some of his favorite songs off the record and re-record them with a new perspective.
