Matthew West is known and unknown – and his works of Christmas speak to all. We have come to really appreciate his steady stream of new, original Christmas music.
This year he will expand his reach through an arrangement with Great American Family network who this year will feature a lot of this new song, titled Come Home for Christmas:
“I love Christmas music so much,” West said of this song, “and each year I find myself sitting down at the piano penning a new Christmas tune inspired by my love of this most wonderful time of the year. ‘Come Home for Christmas’ is not just a song, it’s an invitation for every heart to return to the wonder, the peace, the love, and the hope that this holiday season offers to every heart.”
West was recently nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Inspirational Artist.
The NSAI Songwriter-Artist of the Year also announced his upcoming double album MY STORY YOUR GLORY set for release February 17, 2023.
The five-time Grammy® nominee has had a monumental year: “Me On Your Mind” spent 6 weeks atop the Mediabase Christian Airplay chart and the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for 5 weeks. His fifth consecutive chart-topper marked West’s 25th number one song combined as an artist and songwriter – now at 27.
We applaud Mr. West for his Christmas contributions. We are happy to use this new song to kick off our celebration of new Christmas music in 2022.
