Billboard Exclusively Premieres Matthew West’s Brand-New Something Greater Music Vid
Billboard.com exclusively premiered four time GRAMMY® Nominee Matthew West’s brand-new music video for “Something Greater,” recounting the singer’s personal journey to Nashville. Off his chart-topping album, All In, the video is compiled of personal clips of West from his wedding day, early career performances and with his daughters, imparting the narrative of West’s life up to this point.
“‘[Something Greater]’ is my favorite song on the record, because it shares more of my direct story than my songs tend to do,” shared West with Billboard. “This song illustrates a change in my creative process. A lot of times my inspiration will be deeply personal, but then as a songwriter I’ll try to reach out and grab this universal message, so I’ll take this direct inspiration, but then try to write it in a way that everybody could relate to it. That’s part of my job as a songwriter, to write relatable songs.”
“Something Greater” also features the familiar harmonies of country star, Carrie Underwood, who shared with Billboard, “I’ve always loved [Matthew] as an artist…it was a really cool thing to be a part of.”
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the critically lauded All In, West is inviting fans to join him for a Facebook Live event on Tues., Sept. 18 at 7:00PM CT. Fans can tune in at https://www.facebook.com/matthewwest for a live acoustic performance from Matthew featuring some of his favorite songs off the record, along with a fan Q&A and giveaways!
Following “The Answer/All In Tour,” a 20 city co-headlining fall tour with Jeremy Camp, West will be headlining Compassion LIVE’s “The Roadshow Christmas” and “The Roadshow” 2019, visiting 29 markets coast to coast.
