RECORDS/Arista Nashville breakthrough entertainer Matt Stell premiered his official music video for “Everywhere But On” today, following a live Q&A with fans. Directed by Austin Peckham and filmed in Nashville, TN and Savannah, GA, the moody clip depicts Stell, brooding over a heartache he cannot find a way to outrun. See it below:
The epic new single, which is already Top 40 on the country radio charts and climbing, was co-written by Stell, Paul Sikes and Lance Miller. It is the follow up to “career-changing” (Music Row) multi-week No. 1 smash and the only Billboard chart-topper by a debut artist in 2019, “Prayed For You,” amassing 182 million streams. Both songs are featured on Stell’s Everywhere But On EP, which also includes a collaboration with Jimmie Allen, “Home In A Hometown,” and Stell’s cover of the Ariana Grande hit “God Is a woman.”
In response to the global pandemic impacting in person shows, Stell is hosting a WEEKLY livestream music series on Instagram @MattStellMusic. Titled PENNED UP, Matt will welcome special guest performers Lindsay Ell, HARDY and Jameson Rodgers each Wednesday at 8PM CT. He kicked it off on March 25 – view HERE. Stell’s first headlining run, MATT STELL EVERYWHERE BUT ON TOUR, will play the remaining shows later this year while Matt will hit the road on select dates this fall with Toby Keith and as part of Rascal Flatts: Farewell Life Is A Highway Tour.

ABOUT MATT STELL: Matt Stell is poised for a next-level year after a breakthrough 2019. Milestones continue to add up, with multi-week No. 1 Gold-certified hit, “Prayed For You” being the ONLY debut artist single to top the Billboard Country Airplay chart (for two consecutive weeks), also notching the top spot in Country Aircheck/Mediabase. The highly acclaimed track, written by Stell with Ash Bowers and Allison Veltz Cruz, has accumulated 182 million streams and counting and is featured on his Everywhere But On EP, which also includes a collaboration with Jimmie Allen, “Home In A Hometown,” and Stell’s cover of the Ariana Grande hit “God Is a woman.” The year also marked his Grand Ole Opry debut (April 27) and the launch of his philanthropic initiative, the Give A Damn Foundation, raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Doctors Without Borders, the Humane Society, and more. Stell made his primetime, network TV debut on ABC’s summer reality series “Bachelor in Paradise” and kicked off 2020 with a performance on “Good Morning America.”
He’s 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 6’7” Center Ridge, Ark. native and 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/Arista Nashville. Stell has received “Ones To Watch” shout-outs from multiple partners, including Vevo DSCVR, MusicRow’s Next Big Thing, The Boot Artist To Watch, Sounds Like Nashville New Country Artist to Watch, CMT Discovery Artist, and YouTube Music Artist on the Rise. He just wrapped his first headlining shows, MATT STELL EVERYWHERE BUT ON TOUR, and will hit the road on select dates this fall with Toby Keith and as part of Rascal Flatts: Farewell Life Is A Highway Tour.
