The tour includes a concert on March 7 to raise funds for the school at Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, right outside of Denver. Sponsorship packets are still available and include a Meet & Greet with Matthew West.
Matthew is from Downers Grove and he now resides with his family in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to his five albums, he’s written songs for several top contemporary Christian and mainstream country artists including Billy Ray Cyrus and Rascal Flatts.
