With more than 470 Million cumulative streams across his catalog to date, Matt is adding to this tally with his newest track, “Boyfriend Season,” and radio hit “That Ain’t Me No More,” the follow up to his back-to-back No. 1s, Platinum-certified track “Prayed For You” and Gold-certified “Everywhere But On.” As one of only eight debut country artists in the last six years to have their first two singles top the charts, Matt celebrated this success as one of Country Radio Seminar’s 2021 New Faces of Country Music class and has joined Miranda Lambert, Old Dominion and Toby Keith on tour this year.
In just the last two years the “versatile” (Billboard) artist has made his Opry debut and performed on “Good Morning America,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s” #LateShowMeMusic digital series, “Bachelor In Paradise” and sung the national anthem for NASCAR and NFL events. He launched his Give A Damn Foundation, kicked-off his hugely successful 8-week Instagram-live series, Penned Up, and was the first-ever artist to receive a virtual plaque from the RIAA for “Prayed For You,” an ASCAP Pop and Country most-performed song awards winner. In 2020 he released his new EP, Better Than That, the follow up to 2019’s Everywhere But On, and is prepping a new project for 2022.
The 6’7” Arkansas native has come a long way from playing college basketball for Drury University and making the choice to head to Nashville instead of Cambridge, MA where he was accepted into Harvard University’s Extension School Pre-Med program. Following his dream of writing and performing, the self-taught vocalist and guitar-player made the move to Music City in 2014, landing a publishing and management deal with Wide Open Music and a record deal with music industry powerhouse Barry Weiss’ RECORDS Nashville. Stell has received “Ones To Watch” shout-outs from multiple partners, including Vevo DSCVR, MusicRow’s Next Big Thing, CMT Discovery Artist, YouTube Music Artist on the Rise and more.
