About Matt Felts

Looking back on Matt Felts career so far, he has come a long way from St. Louis, Missouri. Over the greater part of the last two decades, Matt's artistry has grown to echo off the walls of some of music’s biggest venues, and vibrate the rafters of countless halls, stages and churches around the world. He has recorded with legends and stars such as Carman, Jason Crabb, Vestal Goodman, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, the Issacs, Larry Gatlin, Duane Allen, the Issacs, Jeff & Sheri Easter, Richard Sterban, Darryl Worley, Ben Speer, and more. 
          Over his career, Matt Felts has toured with some of Christian & Country Music's legendary artists.  His musical journey has allowed him to share the stage with Carman, the Gaither Homecoming Choir, the Oak Ridge Boys, Larry Gatlin, Josh Turner, Chubby Checker, and more.   For several years, Matt was also a member of the weekly host group for Great American Gospel, a syndicated television show broadcast to millions around the world.
          Matt's acclaimed voice and songwriting have garnered him many blessings and honors. He has won numerous awards including Favorite Tenor in Gospel Music, multiple Favorite Group awards, and Song of the Year  honors. In 2017, Matt was nominated by the fans of Christian Music for the Favorite Male Vocalist award and won the Sunrise Artist award in the SGN Scoops Magazine Diamond Awards. He has been honored across the nation by Senators, Governors, and Mayors. In 2011,  Mayor Francis Slay Of St. Louis, Missouri declared November 11 as "Matt Felts Day'" in the Gateway city. Later that year, Matt was recognized in a way far beyond the dreams of a kid growing up in the mid-west, as he was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame.
