Mathews Road is one of Nashville’s most dynamic new country bands. The 5 pc band performs equally compelling styles, acoustically or full- band. In 2017 Blair Mathews assembled this group of top-flight musicians from the Nashville area to perform a selection of more than 100 country songs he has written, as a part of DHM Publishing Group in Nashville. Often co-writing with some of Nashville’s top song writers, the stretch to write a better song, was always the focus.
In 2014 Mathews moved his family to Tennessee to be immersed in the world’s #1 environment for the creation of country music. He has worked mainly with his close friend, Grammy Award Winning Engineer Chad Carlson (Taylor Swifts first 3 albums), out of the renowned Sound Emporium Studios. He has also recorded several tracks with Grammy Award Winning Producer Luke Wooten, at Station West Studios.
In 2016, a song Blair co-wrote with Keith Dozier, “All I’ve Got Going Is You,” was a finalist for Country Song of the Year, in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). The band released the music video for that song late in 2017 to strong reviews, with Muddy Beatz Magazine stating “Mathews is undoubtedly one of the strongest country writers of our time.” Mathews has had 3 of his own singles on the Music Row Chart, as well as cuts in Australia.
Blair now lives with his wife Tracey and 3 dogs on their farm outside Nashville – some of the most spectacular countryside on the planet. Blair and his band played several select events in 2018. They Headlined the Georgia Peach Festival in June and in July Headlined the Harley Davidson Summer Concert Series in Alabama.
