Our CMA Fest Artist Spotlight continues with 9-time award winning independent artist Matthew Huff. Huff has an impressive amount of fans that support and promote him daily. Some of the fans recently approached me in an effort to gain him more recognition for his remarkable abilities as a musician.
We listened to them. Please watch our conversation now to learn more about this artist and all he has coming up. Check out the sneak peek of his bio (taken from his website) below as well.
“Matthew Huff, an independent artist, making his own way as a fusion genre’d artist with a mix best described as a little bit of Keith Urban, John Mayer, John Mellencamp, and James Taylor all rolled up in to one. A country rooted artist with several musical genre inspirations.
Huff’s honors to date include his debut single “Back Again” in which landed him a Top 40 hit (39) on Music Row Breakout Chart and #20 Power Source Top 75. The follow-up single, As Time Goes By, hit #51 Music Row Breakout Chart and #9 on Power Source Top 75.
His debut album “Strong” (2010) features Back Again and As Time Goes By. The 2013 follow-up album “Reflection” features and song titled “Simple Things” (wrote in 2011) that helped earn him the 2011 Nashville’s New Country Star Competition. Huff also was awarded the George D. Hay Music Hall of Fame and Foundation Hoedown Award in 2011. The George D. Hay Hall of Fame is a sister organization to the Grand Ole Opry.
Huff's third studio album "Give It All I Got" continues to rack up awards, earning him 3 IMEA Awards in 2014.
In addition, Matthew's single "This Is Our Home"(2014) was written two days after the devastating tornadoes hit several central Arkansas communities in which he lived near. All of the proceeds from sales of this song are going to relief efforts…
Huff makes sure to give back to several charities throughout the year and highly supports organizations such as Team-Keegan, All Children's Hospital, and Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Also, he created his own scholarship, in which he gives a $1,000 scholarship to a high school senior from his alma mater, Mammoth Spring High. The Matthew Huff Scholarship is designed to motivate students to not only dream the dream but step out and pursue the dream. “
