Tom Riles and Art Eddy finish out 2016 by bringing on country music singer, Matt Stillwell.

Matt Stillwell grew up in North Carolina. During college, Stillwell played baseball at Western Carolina University where he was an All-Conference player on the Catamount’s Southern Conference Championship Baseball teams. Baseball turned into music and Stillwell has since been traveling across the country in his custom wrapped Budweiser bus headlining his own shows, as well as opening for most of today’s country superstars. He lives with his wife, Lindsey, and their two daughters Carolina and Ruby in Knoxville, TN.

Stillwell recently released a new single called Hey Dad, written about the loss of his father. The video for Hey Dad has over 18 million views online. GAC and CMT have both started to air the video, and the single will be released to country radio February 15. He is finalizing details for several shows this spring and summer in support of Folds Of Honor and The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation.
