"My journey of encouraging people to tell their story has led to me receiving over 40,000 stories from all over the world, and now I'm finishing up a third project in which every single song is inspired by one of those stories," shares Matthew West about Live Forever and the tour. "I can't wait to share these songs and stories with audiences everywhere. This will be more than just a night of entertainment, but an unforgettable experience being reminded that God has a plan for the stories of each of our lives."
West continues his mission to tell a story of a different kind with his music – to transform listeners’ stories into life-changing songs. He will release his new studio album, Live Forever, on April 28 (Capitol Christian Music Group) featuring songs inspired by the thousands of stories he continues to receive. The debut radio single, "Day One," from the forthcoming album is climbing the radio charts quickly as it is approaching the Top 10 after just 5 weeks. Watch the lyric video for "Day One" below.
