Capitol CMG artist and four-time GRAMMY® nominee Matthew West released his highly anticipated album, Live Forever, which marks his first No. 1 debut on the Nielsen Soundscan Christian & Gospel Albums chart in its first week. This 11-track project debuted at No. 24 on the Billboard Top Albums chart with a 24% increase over his last album release.

Live Forever was produced by Pete Kipley (MercyMe, Crowder) and continues West’s mission to tell a story of a different kind with his music-to transform listeners’ stories into life-changing songs. With comments such as “West has become a master storyteller,” to “a must have album,” the reviews for Live Forever have been a good indication to the immediate success of his project.

West is wrapping up his 40-city The Live Forever Tour with special guests Colton Dixon and Mr. Talkbox in Poughkeepsie, NY this weekend. Last week, West kicked off the release of his new album with a non-stop “24 Shows in 24 Hours” – a first for the Christian music industry. The #24in24 kicked off at Wal-Mart where West met a few fans and bought them the album, which can be seen below from K-LOVE’s exclusive video footage. The entire event was covered by K-LOVE TV whose crew followed West around the entire day, capturing each moment to air as a series exclusively for the network. Details of the airing of the series will be announced shortly. For more information on Matthew’s “24 Shows In 24 Hours” see here.

Managing Editor

I've been an enormous Christian music fan since a concert by The World Wide Message Tribe in 2001. I'm passionate about spending my life changing the Christian music stereotype/saving the lives of our youth with it. I love puns, sports, wrestling & logic puzzles. I also have an English accent...because I'm English. My favo(u)rite 10 bands are: TFK, KJ-52, Disciple, Stellar Kart, Manafest, Skillet, Kutless, Family Force 5, Seventh Day Slumber and Ashes Remain.
