“You Can Still Wear White”
“Matt Kennon’s ‘The Call’ was one of best indie singles of the past few months. He proves it was no fluke with this driving, propulsive, pounding, power-packed anthem. I still love his soulful, raspy delivery. Make this man a star.”

Matt Kennon’s latest release to country radio is “You Can Still Wear White,” which the Georgia singer co-wrote with Aaron Scherz. This song and Kennon’s breakthrough debut single “The Call,” both appear on his BamaJam Records album The Call.
After moving to Nashville, Kennon began working with producer Kyle Lehning and those sessions led to one of Kennon’s songs being cut by Randy Travis. Kennon eventually found a label home with producer James Stroud, who signed him to BamaJam Records. “It couldn’t be a better fit,” says Matt. “James just let me be me.”
The Call includes songs Kennon wrote with tunesmiths Rob Crosby, Noah Gordon and Brian White, among others, and features his own unique blend of music. “It’s country, but it’s got a hint of rock ‘n’ roll mixed in,” Matt says. Guests on the project include Mark Slaughter of Slaughter and Jimi Jamison of Survivor, the band that sparked Matt’s performing fire years earlier.
The heavily tattooed singer has many stories to share, and his songs reflect that. “I want to touch people with my music,” Matt says. “This is my calling. This is what God put me on this earth to do. Whether it’s a hundred people or a million, I want to have an impact.”
