Hours ahead of night one of two sold-out nights at The Corbin Arena in Kentucky, serving as direct support for Ryan Upchurch, Chase Matthew shared a heartfelt video message to fans on social media.

The clip, shared on Instagram, finds Matthew getting emotional while graciously thanking fans for their endless support over the last 6 months. 

“Wow just wow…so grateful. God is good,” Matthew captioned the video.

As the fast rising singer and 2022 Music Mayhem Artist To Watch prepared to soundcheck at the Kentucky arena, he came to realization that he is in fact living out some of his dreams and he wanted to share his appreciation with fans.

“I just wanted to take a video real quick and share this surreal moment with you guys, because it’s just crazy right now. I’m trying not to cry, because it’s just emotional man,” Matthew said as he held back tears. “I feel like the kid whose dreams finally came true. I’m about to do a sold-out show, two nights back-to-back with Ryan Upchurch at Corbin Arena. Seven thousand people both nights, probably more.”

Matthew continued, “And 6 months ago, I was a nobody, barely paying my rent. You guys have changed my life, and I’m just so grateful.”

“I’m grateful for the label, I’m grateful for my distribution. All the people that have supported me, TikTok, Spotify, playlist, I mean everything is just crazy and seeing that with my name on it… unreal,” Matthew added, referencing the larger than life backdrop on stage that had his name emblazoned on it.

“Thank you guys so much for supporting me and I promise to always stay genuine to you guys,” the “County Line” singer concluded.

The video even prompted a response from his label’s owner, Hollerboy Records’ CEO Upchurch.

“Love you brotha. You’re going far man. So far. You are a golden country boy and I don’t ever want you to forget that Chase,” Upchurch commented on the post.

The sold-out shows for Upchurch and Matthew come just weeks after the pair shared a remix of Lil Durk and Morgan Wallen’s hit “Broadway Girls,” which trended on YouTube for days following its release. 

In addition to dropping the remix for the song, Upchurch and Matthew filmed a video for the track in Downtown Nashville on Lower Broadway.

The video features footage of Upchurch and Matthew in the studio recording the song intertwined with clips of the singers walking around on Lower Broadway. The Hollerboys Records CEO and signee even filmed a few clips inside Aldeans, a SoBro bar owned by fellow country star, Jason Aldean.
