NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 17, 2023)
Matthew West delivers powerful double album, MY STORY YOUR GLORY – out today across all digital streaming platforms. Composed of 22 tracks, the first part of the album, MY STORY, embodies the countless stories fans have shared with the songwriter over the years as well as personal experiences and the second part, YOUR GLORY, marks the first official Gospel worship album from the “Christian music star” (FoxNews). Some of the songs included on the project are “Me On Your Mind,” an “emotional song that speaks to the personal nature of God’s love” (Grammy.com), “Greatest Hits,” a heartwarming collaboration with country star, Granger Smith, “heartfelt ALS Awareness anthem” (HuffPost), “Wonderful Life,” and more that showcase his “songs reflect his strong faith” (Forbes). The album’s title track is currently in the Top 15 on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart at number 11 and number 13 on the Mediabase Christian AC Chart.
West kicked off album launch week by dropping unreleased tracks each day and releasing two new music videos – one for “Hard Season” which came out on 2/15 and the other for “The Last Song” which dropped on 2/16.
“In a world driven by singles, I’ve always loved listening to complete albums of my favorite artists,” shares West. “I am drawn to the idea of a record having a theme and a story that gets told from start to finish. My Story Your Glory is a 22 song double album divided into two themes. On My Story, I share the story of my life as well as the stories of peoples’ lives who have inspired me along the way. Your Glory is my first ever worship project. Each of these songs is a worshipful response to how God is at work in the stories of our lives. In a lot of ways, I feel like I write a 22 song mission statement, a declaration to remind myself why I’m here on this earth and what really matters. It’s my story for His glory.”

The five-time Grammy® nominated artist is poised and ready for an impressive 2023 after a monumental 2022 – his prior single “Me On Your Mind” spent 6 weeks atop the Mediabase Christian Airplay chart and graced the top the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for 5 weeks. The track was his fifth consecutive chart-topper and marked West’s 25th number one song combined as an artist and songwriter – now up to 27. He was named NSAI’s Songwriter-Artist of the Year following the footsteps of artists including Luke Combs, Luke Bryan, and Taylor Swift to name a few. West is notably the first predominantly Christian artist to win the award in over 20 years. He released his sixth book “The God Who Stays,” an engaging and thoughtful exploration, balanced with West’s trademark wit and humor, that helps us reconnect to the Biblical truth that God is with us. In his most personal book to date, West was inspired by the dramatic events of 2020 to go on a spiritual journey of rediscovery and revival inspired by the words of his hit song “The God Who Stays.” The proven storyteller finished out the year with a partnership with Great American Family to highlight “Come Home For Christmas” on their channel all holiday season and a high profile appearance of the carol on The Kelly Clarkson Show – watch here.
Additionally, fans can hear him on “The Matthew West Podcast” which has surpassed an impressive 2.5 million downloads and drops new episodes weekly under the “That Sounds Fun” network. He is gearing up to captivate fans across the nation with the MY STORY YOUR GLORY tour. For dates and ticket information visit matthewwest.com/tour.
