Nashville, Tenn. January, 20 2011… After a successful launch in the fall of 2010, Matthew West is announcing the continuation of “The Story of Your Life” tour with opener Josh Wilson. “An Evening of Stories & Songs with Matthew West” provides an moving concert experience as West brings to life the very stories that inspired the songs on The Story of Your Life album. “What I want is to invite the audience, every single night, to embark on the journey of discovering the power in all of our stories and realizing that their life is a story worth telling,” adds West. The shared songs and stories will be from his latest album inspired by 10,000 stories he received from every state in the U.S. and 20 countries internationally. The tour kicks off in mid-February on the west coast and will continue to hit select markets in the Midwest and east throughout March and into early April.

“No one can capture the true nature of the human experience as Mathew West did on his new project, The Story Of Your Life,” explains John Huie, Creative Artists Agency Agent. “He captured the soul of the very issues that he came face to face with during his time in the cabin writing this album. And this tour brings all of that to life. The journey that Matthew takes people on during the concert connects at a deeper level than your normal concert experience and is changing lives in each city he visits.”
