Matt Stell Had a Lot of Fun in the Hot, Hot Desert

Matt Stell made his first trip oversees earlier this month on the Fourth of July holiday to entertain U.S. service men and women.

Playing at the Al Dhafra Air Base in Abu Dhabi, Matt entertained the troops with his music, including his number-1 hits “Prayed for You,” and “Everywhere But On,” as well as his current single “That Ain’t Me Anymore.”

Matt said this something he’ll never forget “My first trip overseas was a really special one because we got to spend Independence Day with the troops there in the Middle East.”

He adds “I got to meet a whole bunch of really great, really amazing, really fun people that do everything from fly planes to work on ‘em, to build bombs, all kinds of stuff. And really great to meet those folks and see what they do day to day and then play a rock show made out of country music with them that night, so we sure had a lot of fun in that hot, hot desert.”

Not usually one to be at a loss for words, Matt says “This doesn’t happen to me often, but I really can’t find the words to express what this trip has meant to me. I am so thankful for the opportunity and I will never forget the experience.” 

Now that he’s back stateside, Matt will be having even more unforgettable experiences as he’s hitting the road opening shows for Brad Paisley this month, and Miranda Lambert in August.

Fans will be looking to hear this one from him – Matt Stell’s “That Ain’t Me No More”

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way? I think, that is what we saw from Ammon Bundy during the Special Session in Idaho. I fear those actions have tainted the man’s reputation as a freedom fighter to what…
