ABOUT MATT STELL: In only the last three years, “versatile” (Billboard) artist Matt Stell has quickly made his mark on country music, amassing over half a Billion music streams across his catalog, including back-to-back No. 1s “Prayed For You” and “Everywhere But On” along with fan favorites “Boyfriend Season” and “That Ain’t Me No More.” He has since made his Opry debut and performed on “Good Morning America,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s” #LateShowMeMusic digital series, “Bachelor In Paradise” and sung the national anthem for NASCAR and NFL events. He launched his Give A Damn Foundation, kicked-off his hugely successful 8-week Instagram-live series, Penned Up, and was the first-ever artist to receive a virtual plaque from the RIAA for “Prayed For You,” which is now approaching 2x Platinum status, and is an ASCAP Pop and Country most-performed song awards winner. In 2020 he released his EP, Better Than That, the follow up to 2019’s Everywhere But On, and is prepping a new project for 2022, led by new single “Man Made.”
The 6’7” Arkansas native has 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 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 Nashville. Stell has received “Ones To Watch” shout-outs from multiple partners, including Vevo DSCVR, MusicRow’s Next Big Thing, CMT Discovery Artist, YouTube Music Artist on the Rise and more.

George grabbed the attention of media titan Bobby Bones, who anointed “Mind on You” as one of his “Top 3 Favorite Songs” and named Birge a “National Spotlight Artist of the Week.” “You got some heat on you right now,” Bones told Birge during a recent in-studio interview and performance on the always coveted Bobby Bones Show.
Birge cut his country teeth while writing with some of the genre’s best, including Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, Chris Lane, Matt Stell, Clay Walker (“Need a Bar Sometimes”) and country rapper Colt Ford.
