RECORDS Nashville MULTI-PLATINUM artist Matt Stell recently celebrated his multi-week #1 breakout “Prayed For You” reaching its RIAA 2X PLATINUM certification. Visiting his label’s New York City office last Wednesday (11/16), Stell was surprised with a plaque before performing at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, NY, during his 17-date headlining THE MAN MADE TOUR 2022.
“If I told you when we sat down to write ‘Prayed For You’ that I knew it would one day go double Platinum, I’d be lying,” shares Stell. “I’ve said it before, but it takes so many people doing a great job to have success in this business. It starts with a song, but it certainly doesn’t end there. I‘m lucky to be on this team and get to celebrate with everyone because this is a win for us all.”
Continuing to play the Stell, Allison Veltz Cruz, and Ash Bowers-penned smash and more on the road, Stell has only three December dates remaining on the run. With special guests George Birge and Kyle Clark, find tickets and full tour details here.
Top 40-and-climbing at Country radio with current single “Man Made,” Stell is also catching media attention with his brand-new “One Of Us” music video directed by Chris Beyrooty. Kicking the dirt up with a CMT Broadcast Premiere, while also appearing on CMT Music and CMT.com – watch the full throttle clip featuring “jaw-dropping motocross freestyle stunts” here.
