Platinum artist and songwriter Matt Stell has earned his second consecutive No. 1 single on the US Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts with “Everywhere But On,” making him only the seventh new artist to achieve that feat in the last five years. The single, written by Stell along with Paul Sikes and Lance Miller, follows his multi-week No. 1 Platinum-certified debut smash, “Prayed For You,” also co-written by Stell. “Prayed For You” was the ONLY debut artist single to top the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 2019, and has been named a NSAI “10 Songs We Wish We Had Written” for 2020.
“It is tough for me to be at a loss for words, but I am,” says Stell. “As a songwriter, to experience this twice in a row is just the best feeling. There is a lot of me in this song and that makes this extra special. I am so grateful to country radio and all of the hard-working people on my team!”
“Everywhere But One” is one of eight tracks featured on his brand-new EP Better Than That, which was released on 16th October. Co-produced by Stell and Ash Bowers, the EP also includes breakthrough hit “Prayed For You” and the recently released “If I Was A Bar.” Matt recently took part in the UK’s Country Music Week, with interviews on Country Hits Radio and Chris Country, and a Sony Music Nashville UK session.
With 360 Million cumulative streams to date, Stell continues to push boundaries and break records. He has spent 67 weeks on Billboard’s multi-genre Emerging Artists chart and holds the record for most total weeks spent in the Top 5 among all country acts since the chart was launched. In celebration of his No. 1 single, Stell is donating $5,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through his Give A Damn Foundation. These proceeds were raised from his pre-COVID “Give A Damn” pop-up shows, Cameo appearances, and the “Give A Damn” wristbands that he sells on his website. Charities who have received Give A Damn donations thus far include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Doctors Without Borders and the Humane Society.
