Matt Stell Shares a Christmas Gift He Loved, and One He Never Wants To Get

Matt Stell Shares a Christmas Gift He Loved, and One He Never Wants To Get

Some Christmas presents are a hit with people, and some are misses.

Matt Stell remembers one of his favorite Christmas presents ever, “My favorite childhood Christmas memory is when my mother got me a puppy one time.  It was a good little dog, Hollyberry.” 

Of course, like every parent knows, you get your kid a pet, and 9 out of 10 times, you become the main caretaker.

Matt jokes that happened with his dog and his mom, “My mom ended up being-They were probably more attached to each other than I was with it, but I loved that dog.  Man, she loved that dog.”

So, the dog was a big hit as a present, but just in case he ever ends up on your gift giving list, Matt Stell shares the one thing he never wants to get as a present, “I can’t really think of a gift that I always wanted that Santa didn’t bring me, but I can tell you some things- many things that Santa brought me that I never wanted and to this day it continues.  I hate getting clothes for Christmas.  I want toys. I want video games. I just want a card. I don’t care. I don’t like getting clothes for Christmas.”

Everybody clear on that now?

Well, a gift that Matt got this year that we know he was happy about, was his second number-one song. Back in November “Everywhere But On” topped the country airplay charts…

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
