Exclusive: Matt Stell Debuts Acoustic Performance of “Chase It Down”

Fresh off of his No. 1 hit, “Everywhere But On,” Matt Stell is releasing a special acoustic performance of “Chase It Down.”

Both tracks, along with his 2019 No. 1 single, “Prayed For You,” are included on his eight-song EP, Better Than That.

Matt co-wrote “Chase It Down” with Jarrod Ingram and Blake Hubbard—together known as the 720—as well as Brian Maher.

“I’m a guy who loves my hometown, but I’m also the guy who had to see what was out in the world past the county line,” says Matt. “This song is about making that now or never leap.”

Check out Matt’s special acoustic performance of “Chase It Down.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
