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. Stillwell’s video of the song about the loss of his father, “Hey Dad”, has been viewed over 40 million times online.
Stillwell's brand new self-titled EP is available online now. It includes 6 brand new songs including "Hot Minute," the lead single, and "I Still Got Your Heart" which was featured on an episode of Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives that Stillwell co-hosted this year. There is a special edition of the EP that includes "I'm A Vol For Life Y'all" that Stillwell about his love for Tennessee Football. "I'm A Vol For Life Y'all" was featured in Neyland Stadium on the jumbotron this season and has received significant regional airplay.
2018 will include Stillwell's Badges For Baseball Tour in Major League Baseball stadiums across the country. Badges For Baseball is the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation's marquee program that puts at-risk youth together with law enforcement using baseball as the hook. As the ambassador for the program, Stillwell gets back to his baseball roots and helps to bridge an extremely socially relevant problem in the US. The tour had four stops last year and will grow to 20 in 2018 and 2019.
