Combustion Music President Chris Farren said, “We have been lucky enough to work with Matthew for the past 10 years, and could not be happier to be continuing that relationship. Matthew has proven over and over his unique ability to write not only massive hit songs for himself, but for many others as well, in multiple genres. He continues to be a constant force in an industry where things change very quickly, and we look forward to 4 more years of great success together.”
Matthew West stated, “Since moving to Nashville years ago I’ve noticed an undeniable connection between the most successful songwriters and the belief and support of the people they’ve surrounded themselves with. Every writer needs a champion, an advocate, and for me that has been the team at Combustion. I’m excited to continue this partnership and thankful for their continued belief in the music I’m passionate about writing. I’m also looking forward to turning around and serving as an advocate and support for the young songwriters we develop together in years to come.”
