Award-winning singer-songwriter and recording artist Matthew West on Friday released a brand-new music video for his song, "Something Greater." The song is a cut from West's chart-topping album, All In, and recounts the artist's personal journey to Nashville, featuring personal clips of West from his wedding day, early career performances, and with his daughters, imparting the narrative of his life up to this point.
"'[Something Greater]' is my favorite song on the record, because it shares more of my direct story than my songs tend to do," West told Billboard. "This song illustrates a change in my creative process."
He explains, "A lot of times my inspiration will be deeply personal, but then as a songwriter I'll try to reach out and grab this universal message, so I'll take this direct inspiration, but then try to write it in a way that everybody could relate to it. That's part of my job as a songwriter, to write relatable songs."
"Something Greater" also features the unmistakable voice of country star Carrie Underwood, who shared with Billboard, "I've always loved [Matthew] as an artist...it was a really cool thing to be a part of."
Celebrating the one-year anniversary of his critically-lauded album All In, West is inviting fans to join him for a Facebook Live event tonight, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. CT. Fans can tune in to West's official Facebook page for a live acoustic performance featuring some of his favorite songs off the record, along with a fan Q&A and giveaways.
West has a busy touring schedule lined up for the rest of the year. Following his co-headlining "The Answer/All In Tour" with Jeremy Camp, which concludes on Nov. 18, West will once again hit the road on the "The Roadshow Christmas Tour" together with Matt Maher, Building 429, Plumb, Josh Wilson, and Leanna Crawford.
