Bio: Matt Stell

Country to Country is delighted to announce the return of Country Music Week, confirming shows in London, Manchester and Glasgow with a host of stellar names. 

Country Music Week (CMW) will feature live shows and unique events across select venues in London, Manchester and Glasgow. The events will recognise and celebrate emerging artists within the broad spectrum of country music, give fans another opportunity to discover UK and US acts early in their career and connect fans with the stories behind the songs.  

Tenille Townes returns to the UK off the back of a main stage triumph at C2C Festival 2022, where she opened up the main arena in style. Expect to hear songs from Tenille’s award-winning Columbia Nashville/RCA Records debut, The Lemonade Stand.
Powerhouse vocalist Caitlyn Smith will perform intimate shows following release of her acclaimed new album. Described by Billboard as “one of Nashville’s most versatile creatives,” Smith returns to the UK following memorable performances at this year’s C2C Festival, and continues momentum built last week in Nashville, where she played five shows across CMA Fest, including spots at the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame.  

Matt Stell and Elvie Shane will take to the stage together throughout Country Music Week, in what will be a unique chance to see two of country’s future superstars perform an electric set filled with their own hits and shared stories.
Nashville’s weekly, all-female songwriter round, Song Sufragettes, heads to the UK for the first time. A one-hour, weekly acoustic showcase, Song Sufragettes featuring five up-and-coming female country artists, performing exclusive, stripped-down sets.

Song Suffragettes alumni, including Carly Pearce, Tenille Arts, Lainey Wilson, Jillian Jaqueline, have consistently gone on to receive record and publishing deals. Over 300 women have performed at Song Sufragettes, whittled down from 2,000 applications, and 22 have received record deals, with over 45 artists receiving publishing deals off the back of these shows.

Made up of US and UK names, it promises to be an incredible line-up and is the best place to witness country music’s next star.

Caitlyn Smith
After winning a Critics Choice Award and writing songs for the likes of Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Meghan Trainor and John Legend, Garth Brooks, and Jason Aldean, Caitlyn Smith has established herself as one of Nashville’s brightest rising stars. Undeniably one of the best vocalists of this generation, Smith’s 2018 Starfire and 2020’s Supernova saw her in the pages of TIME
Magazine and The New York Times, and had her named to Rolling Stone’s 10 country artists to know and Paste’s 10 country artists to watch.

Elvie Shane
A native of small-town Kentucky, early touchstones like Dwight Yoakam, Steve Earle and John Fogerty joined Wheelhouse Records’ Elvie Shane’s Gospel roots to form the bedrock of his taste – along with R&B classics like The Temptations and modern superstars like Eminem.  
Shane's picture-based lyrics and knack for storytelling lead to his signing with UTA and he has since opened for Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brothers Osborne Brett Young and Lady A, to name a few.
Shane also just wrapped a stint on the road opening for Brooks & Dunn on their 2021 Reboot Tour.

Matt Stell
In only the last three years, Matt Stell has quickly made his mark on country music, amassing over half a billion music streams across his catalogue, including back-to-back  No. 1s “Prayed  For  You” and “Everywhere  But  On” along with fan favourites “Boyfriend Season” and “That Ain’t Me No More.” He  has  since  made his  Opry  debut  and  performed  on Good Morning America, The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #LateShowMeMusic digital series, Bachelor In Paradise and sung the national anthem for NASCAR and NFL  events.  
He launched  his  Give  A  Damn  Foundation, kicked-off his hugely successful 8-week Instagram-live series, Penned  Up,  and was  the  first-ever artist  to  receive  a virtual plaque from the RIAA for “Prayed For You,” which is now approaching double Platinum status, and is an ASCAP Pop and Country most-performed song awards winner. In 2020 he released his new EP, Better Than That, the follow up to 2019’s Everywhere But On, and is prepping a new project for 2022, led by new single “Man Made.”  

Tenille Townes
On her award-winning Columbia Nashville/RCA Records debut,  The Lemonade Stand, Tenille Townes established herself as a keen observer, a songwriter who could illuminate the human condition and share universal truths with heartfelt insight. For her new music set to release in 2021,  the gifted singer/songwriter goes even deeper with relatable new songs that are exceptionally vulnerable and authentic.
A native of Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, Townes has amassed numerous accolades including being named the 2020 ACM Awards New Female Artist of the Year, 2020 ACM Musical Event of the Year, and then to top off her breakout year, Townes’ debut album The Lemonade Stand won the 2021 JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year.


Bio: Elvie Shane

Kentucky-born and Gospel-bred Elvie Shane aspires to bring his blue-collar upbringing and vibrant American lifestyle to the masses with his distinctive brand of Country music. The BBR Music Group recording artist has carved his own path within the genre by combining honest storytelling with gritty electric guitar licks and unmistakable Southern swagger. Elvie’s larger-than-life personality and hard-to-believe exploits have the makings of an action-packed film and rather than display them on the big screen, the singer-songwriter culls those colorful experiences into his music.

Born in Caneyville, KY, Elvie was the third of four children to his church-going mother and truck driving father. Early musical memories include Sunday mornings singing hymns in church with his mother before returning home to join his father under the hood of an old Ford as Steve Earle and John Forgerty poured out from the speakers. His home life and parents are greatly rooted into his lyrics as he confesses, he has a “temper like his and a heart like hers.”

In the fourth grade, he joined his school’s choir and by ninth, he was invited to front a rock band  after a spirited performance at a church revival. A rowdy child prone to getting into mischief, singing became a positive outlet for Elvie where he channeled his energy into music and tried to stay out of trouble.

“There’s always been this balance of a little Rock-n-Roll and Jesus in my life. I appreciate both ends of the spectrum,” Elvie, who briefly served as an evangelist preacher until he realized it wasn’t his calling, admits. This duality can be heard within the swampy revival anthem “Sundays In the South,” a vivid story-song that gives a nod to his mother and pays tribute to his religious upbringing that is equal parts tent revival and nostalgia of Elvie’s often trouble-filled youth.

An English Literature and Creative Writing major during his time at Western Kentucky University, Elvie was famously turned away from his school news paper for his Hunter S. Thompson-inspired approach to writing. That didn’t stop his creativity though, as Elvie credits a professor for urging him to enter some of his work into a writing contest where he won several awards. He never did complete his schooling, and later took a break from music while navigating life as a family man with his wife and stepson in Kentucky.  

Years later at a party, Elvie picked up the guitar and performed a Chris Stapleton song—after discovering he could sing, his friends in a band convinced him to join them on the road as an opener. While he enjoyed his time out on the road, he never considered pursuing a career as an artist. At that time, Elvie felt his Bruce Springsteen-influenced heartland songs and the descriptive style he was writing in didn’t fit the country landscape of the 2010s. The 2015 CMA Awards turned that all around following Stapleton and Justin Timberlake’s electrifying performance. In that moment, Elvie knew there was a place in Country music for him and started making frequent trips to Nashville to co-write and play any show he could.

Elvie finally found his voice as an artist after penning “County Roads,”a rollicking ode to his upbringing. The song serves as not only the title track to his debut EP, set to be released in April, but the ultimate blend of his love for Country storytelling, his soulful vocals and Classic Rock influences with domineering guitar tones and a stomping beat. It also serves as a nod to his early upbringing as the song includes backing vocals from his high school choir. Also paying homage to his roots are songs nostalgic songs like “My Missippi” that looks back fondly on the one that got away as well as “Sundress” which finds Elvie reminiscing over unrestrained teenage love as well as the inspirational “Keep On Strummin’” that details the tumultuous family life and oddessey Elvie took to pursue his dream. “Nashville bound with my head in the clouds/ They said with hopes so high boy, it’s a long way down/ But I was born and raised American tough/ If I get knocked down, then I’ll just get back up,” he croons on the latter.

In 2018, his honest songwriting was further displayed on “My Boy,” a heartfelt story song penned about his stepson. “He ain’t my blood, ain’t got my name/ But if he did I’d feel the same/ I wasn’t there for his first steps/ But I ain’t missed a ball game yet/ And that ain’t ever gonna change/ I could never walk away,” he sings on the tender ballad. A video of his performance went viral, quickly amassing six million views that turned into signing a publishing deal with Rome Phrey Publishing and several label meetings. He signed with BBR Music Group in early 2019 and released “My Boy” as his first song on the label amidst the pandemic in 2020.

Now Top 40 and climbing on Country radio, the song went viral once again as videos of stepchildren playing the song for their stepparents flooded social media. The heartwarming track connected with blended families in such a beautiful way, leading Elvie to release the sister version, “My Girl.” With only one song released, he was named to Pandora’s 2021 Artist to Watch list as well as Music Row’s “Next Big Thing” 2021 list.

“That song has really been the driving force of my career. A lot of these songs are really rock ‘n’ roll and a little edgy, but then you’ve got this one tender song about a father’s love for his stepson,” Elvie says. “I want my music to make people think and I want it to be as raw and real as possible.”
