This week...

Hello all! I hope you are over your Thanksgiving hangovers! I'm currently in between my two morning tv shows here in Savannah, GA. Got up at 4 am... I had a great time in Johnson City last Friday and in Augusta on Saturday. Both shows were great and it was great to meet all the new people! I've since been in Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Charleston and Savannah. I'm really looking forward to Statesboro on Thursday and Milledgeville on Friday. Good times are going to be had for sure! We are #2 this week on the 12 Pack! Thank you for voting! Keep on rocking the vote. :) Be sure and check out my store on my website. The album is the to download. I have new long sleeve shirts, boy shorts (panties), and white t-shirts for sale. There is also a ringtone for 'Shine'. So be sure and direct all your friends and family to www.mattstillwell.net Thank you again for all of your support!!! Matt

Hey Everyone!

Hey! I hope everyone is doing great! I'm still out here rolling down the road. Last week was incredible and crazy! I played the Viper Room in LA, Seatle, Salt Lake City, Denver, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and New Orleans. I played with Bruce Robison in Oklahoma City. He has written some huge songs. Desperately for George Straight, Traveling Soldier for the Dixie Chicks, and Angry All The Time for Tim and Faith, so it was a treat to play with him for sure! I played in Vegas with Tracy Lawrence this past Saturday. He brought me back on stage to sing with him for his encore and that was awesome!!!

I'm playing in Nashville tonight at the Wildhorse Saloon. I'm really looking forward to it because I don't get to play there too often. Its going to be a good time!! Then its off to Sylva to play at O'Malleys on Saturday after the Western/App State game.

I want to say thank you to all of you that have sent messages to me, called radio stations, voted on cmt, and come to my shows. Things are moving right along and we are making great progress. So keep spreading the word and requesting 'Shine'!!!

Thank you!!! Have a great day and I'll see you on the road!

Detroit, Chicago and Augusta

Hey! Want to say another huge thank you to everyone voting for the video. We are #6 this week on the 12 Pack!! Thank you and keep it up! I had an unbelievable week last week. I was finally back in Statesboro and Atlanta GA. Its been way too long for sure. Both shows went great!!! Then it was back to Knoxville. I played a Cancer fund raiser at Bruce Pearl's house. He is an incredible person and we raised a lot of money for the UT Medical Center. Good times. And then....Patrick Sullivans...:) What an unbelievable turn out! Thank you all for coming and being so pumped up to be there. You make my job easy! I played a couple of shows on Saturday. One in Union Co, TN and then one down in Greenback, TN. Both went great. The second turned into a colder version of Shinefest! Mountains, cool air, a flat bed trailer, and moonshine. It doesn't get any better! I've been in Detroit, Lansing, Flint, and Grand Rapids, Mi and Chicago, Il so far this week on my radio tour. All the visits have gone really well and we've had great response. I'm flying back to Nashville tonight and then heading to Augusta, GA to play at Coyotes Friday night. Then on to Sylva for a private party. Looking forward to being home! We leave next Tuesday to go out west. We have shows in Kansas City, Denver, El Paso, Las Vegas, La (The Viper Room!!!), Seatle, Salt Lake City, Dallas and a few more. Then back to Nashville and Sylva and for the UT/Vandy game and Western/App St game. Radio is going really good right now. Please call all your radio stations and let them know you love Shine and want to hear it more! Thank you for all of your support! Matt

This week with Matt!

Hey! Hope everyone is doing great! I had a great week last week. It was really nice to be back in Knoxville and see a lot of friends and family at the shows. It was also nice to be able to sleep all day yesterday! This week I'm traveling to the northeast. I'll be in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Boston and Rhode Island on Wednesday. Then I'm heading to Jackson, TN for the Songwriter's Depot with Lynn Hutton and Ash Bowers on Thursday. Friday I'll be in Auburn, AL at Quioxtes for a show and then its off to Dallas, TX for a show on Monday night. Lots of travel again. I'm loving it! Don't forget to visit www.cmt.com and www.gac.com and to call your radio stations. Thank you for all of your support!!!! Matt

Hey! from Denver

Hey! I hope everyone is doing great! I'm currently in Denver, CO doing radio visits. I actually get to hang out for a couple of days and unwind...if that's possible. Its beautiful out here. Reminds me of home except the mountains are little bigger. :) Also, Shine is being played on Sirius Radio Channel 60 New Country. Its a buzz cut on there. So listen in if you have Sirius. Just wanted to let you all know about some really cool shows that are coming up. Next Wednesday the 20th I'm opening for John Michael Montgomery at Cotton Eyed Joe's in Knoxville, TN. It's a benefit for Second Harvest. You get in free if you bring a can of food. They also have 25 cent beer that night. Looks like a good time. Saturday the 23rd I'm headlining the Boardwalk Concert Series in Orange Beach, AL at The Wharf. www.thewharfal.com . Not going to be able to play the shows in Raleigh, but no worries; I'll be back soon. Friday the 29th I'm in Auburn, AL at Quioxtes. Can't wait to get back down there. Always a good time! Opening for Corey Smith September 11 in Winston Salem @ The Millennium Center. The there is VEGAS! September 12 @ The Green Valley Ranch with Lady Antebellum and Chris Young. Great place and great show so if you're looking for a road trip.... Keep up with the schedule. It is changing all the time.

8/9

Hello all! So I’m riding shotgun on my way to Salt Lake City. Just drove 8 hours. Was in Napa, CA last night drinking a bunch of really good wine, Madorom, which is made by my friend Andy Adamore . Find it at www.madorom.com. I also played at a great fair in Napa last night to a bunch of awesome people. Then carried the party over to the campground for some wild hog and corn on the cobb. Good times!!!

I’ve been on a crazy radio tour for the last couple of weeks. I spent a couple of days in Las Vegas and got some incredible news. The radio station there has already started playing Shine and I will be opening for Lady Antabellum on September 12 @ Green Valley Ranch Casino. Looking forward to that for sure!

Then I went to San Diego, San Luis Obispo, and LA early in the week. Had a great meeting with The Agency Group. We have since agreed to terms with them to be my booking agency. They book 3 Doors Down, Nickleback, The White Stripes, Dolly Parton and many more. Unbelievable!!

I went on to Bakersfield, Fresno, and Sacramento before heading to Napa last night. I got to eat a steak at The Crystal Palace (home of Buck Owens) in Bakersfield and then played a radio show in Fresno to a great crowd at Kimmie’s with Uncle Buck (the craziest program director in California)! Great time!

Everything is going so good out here and I’m very blessed and fortunate to have this opportunity. Thank you to everyone who have supported and got me to this point. Also, it was great to meet all the new people out here on the West Coast; there are truly some great people out here. Hope you all have a great day! Matt
