As the countdown to his We All Grow Up EP continues, Warner Music Nashville riser Chase Matthew hits overdrive with “Small Town Shit,” a heavy-duty anthem out today (2/2). Listen here.

Written by Jaxson FreeJessie Jo DillonTaylor Phillips, and Daniel Ross, the flexing new track – produced by Alex Maxwell and Jake Angel alongside co-producer Daniel Ross – offers an amped take on country boy pride, with Matthew’s laid-back vocal swagger leading the way. A diesel-powered jam, tough-talking lyrics, and a Hip-Hop-influenced beat combine as the Tennessee native celebrates life “in the sticks” in all its addictive glory.

Meanwhile, an adrenaline-pumping music video finds Matthew and his buddies living out the track’s rowdy buzz. Directed by James West and filmed in the midst of a Southern snowstorm in Springfield, TN, the clip is all parking lot powerslides and 4X4 fun – “Small Town Shit” even the local cops can’t resist.



Along with the previously released “We All Grow Up,” “Small Town Shit” keeps the momentum building toward the February 16 delivery of Matthew’s We All Grow Up EP. Claiming the rural lifestyle with unflinching attitude and his hard-hitting sound, the six-set features four songs co-written by him, as fans continue to discover Matthew’s country-or-nothing personality.

With over 900 MILLION global career streams – including more than 275 MILLION from his first RIAA PLATINUM-certified smash, “County Line” – the emerging talent has seen both independent streaming success and a chart-rising single at Country radio (his “Love You Again” debut is Top 30), all while tastemakers call out his next-up status. 

Along with “One to Watch” attention from HITS and MusicRow’s Next Big Thing Class of 2024, Matthew was just added to Wide Open Country’s spotlight, who cited “charismatic shows and music that strikes a chord with fans” as the core of his “rapidly ascending career.”

That career will keep picking up steam as this year rolls on – especially on the road. Matthew’s headlining COME GET YOUR MEMORY EXTENDED TOUR rumbles through June, with him also supporting Jason Aldean. Check out his website for complete tour information.




With a new EP and a year of big moves on tap, Warner Music Nashville’s Chase Matthew continues to make his case as one of Country’s boldest new voices. A Music City native, the rising star began his career by blazing an independent trail, leveraging an infectious country-or-nothing personality, rowdy live performances, and authentic music built around his low-slung vocal twang. Amassing 900 MILLION global career streams (with more than 275 MILLION global streams on his first RIAA PLATINUM-certified smash, “County Line”), Matthew has garnered 1.5 MILLION+ followers across social media; named “One to Watch” by HITS; and among MusicRow’s Next Big Thing Class of 2024. Since releasing his sophomore album, Come Get Your Memory, he spent 2023 selling out venues across the nation on his headline COME GET YOUR MEMORY TOUR, while also performing at major festivals and more. His debut single “Love You Again” is Top 30-and-climbing at Country radio, and along with releasing his six-song EP We All Grow Up – a mix of backroad swagger and broken hearts – he’s set to spend this year extending his wildly popular headline run, as well as joining Jason Aldean for the HIGHWAY DESPERADO TOUR.
