Award-winning contemporary Christian musician Matthew West initially set out to fulfill his dreams of becoming a professional baseball player. All of that would change, however, when the young artist received a four-year music scholarship, dramatically shifting his goals for the future. He recorded several solo albums before graduating and began work as a songwriter shortly thereafter. He has released five albums to date, producing popular hit singles like "More," "You Are Everything," and "The Motions." West has lent his incredible talents to writing songs for big-name artists including Rascal Flatts, Billy Ray Cyrus and Point of Grace. Despite career-threatening vocal issues and undergoing surgery in 2007, West beat the odds and has continued to top the charts, break records and remained one of the top-selling Christian artists of our time.
