Mat Kearney started off the year because we saw him in concert in January. What a great show! I also saw Coldplay in concert this year... one of the best live performances I've seen in my entire life!
My two favorite albums of the year were Fun.'s Some Nights and Mumford & Sons' Babel, the latter of which is still playing in my car about 80% of the time. Some nights is incredibly up beat and, for lack of a better word, fun! Babel is simply the most amazing album I've ever heard. Can you tell I'm a pretty big fan?
What were your favorite songs of the year? I'm sure I'm missing a few good ones! ;)
