Matt Stillwell was born in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Sylva, 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.
Matt released his debut single “Shine” in the fall of 2008. It debuted at #25 on iTunes Country Chart, reached the TOP #50 on Billboard’s Country Charts, and the accompanying music video reached #5 on CMT Pure while breaking into the Top 10 on GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. The album went on to produce another Top 50 Billboard single in “Sweet Sun Angel” and two more top videos on CMT Pure with “Dirt Road Dancing” and “Sweet Sun Angel”. The first single “Ignition” from his album "Right On Time" reached TOP #50 on the Billboard Hot Country Chart in 2014.
Matt works closely with his sponsors, Pilot Flying J Travel Centers, Ollie’s Bargain Outlets, and Bad Boy Buggies to maximize his exposure through several inventive co-branded projects. His relationship with NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Kevin Harvick, has led to many shows and marketing appearances at tracks across the country. Harvick’s, KHI Management, also helps to secure Stillwell new sponsors and other marketing opportunities.
Stillwell is currently in the studio finishing up work on a new album. The first single is 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.
