Nashville, TN — Award-winning Southern Gospel artist Matt Felts has announced that he is launching a solo ministry. Known for his years with groups such as The Dixie Melody Boys, The Lesters, and others, Felts is excited about this new ministry. “I was blessed to travel many years with some incredible people, but when I came off the road a year ago, God laid a new calling on my heart relating to my music. Many people know some of the trials that our family has experienced. Through those tough times, God crafted a testimony that I feel led to share,” stated Felts.
Felts has been actively involved in Gospel music both an artist and as an industry leader on the business side, serving as General Manager of Butler Music Group for the last year. Felts will remain with Butler Music Group as he adds this new ministry to his schedule. “I’m not going anywhere. If you know me, you know I love marketing and business as much as I love singing. God has truly blessed me to be able to do both,” stated Matt. When I came on board with Butler Music Group, Les encouraged me to keep singing. There’s no way I could do this without his support,” added Matt. Butler said, “When God gives you a song, you can’t help but to sing it! Everyone in my company is bi-vocational – make that tri-vocational. One thing about Matt and everyone at BMG, we may wear out, but we’ll never rust out!”
