NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 6, 2023)
Full throttle ahead for MATTHEW WEST as he is set to perform the National Anthem as well as give the pre-race Invocation at NASCAR’s playoff showdown, Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, October 8. Be sure to tune-in to NBC or listen on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio or the Performance Radio Network at 1:45pm est for pre-race festivities.
With no signs of slowing down, today, West also releases a duet version of his current single “You Changed My Name” featuring Jon Reddick.
Earlier this week, West was honored with ASCAP’s prestigious Golden Note Award, presented to songwriters, composers, and artists who have achieved extraordinary career milestones. Prior winners include Garth Brooks, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Reba, Jay-Z, Usher and more. Additionally, he celebrates another milestone success – he notched his 30th number one song as an artist-songwriter combined with Big Daddy Weave’s “Heaven Changes Everything.”
“I’m usually focused on what’s next,” shares West. “The next song, the next tour, the next record. But this ASCAP honor forced me to stop and reflect on my journey thus far and the result was a feeling of overwhelming gratitude for all the opportunities I’ve been blessed with to make music and share it with the world. And I feel like I’m just getting started! This is definitely an exciting and creative season and I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
