Matthew West's “West Fest” is back – and this time, he's bringing along some talented friends! Happening this weekend, May 7-9, “West Friends Fest” is a one-time-only virtual event.

West, joined by his band, said he is honored to share the stage with many of his dearest friends and collaborators, welcoming Carly Pearce, Annie F. Downs, Austin French, Micah Tyler, I AM THEY, Rhett Walker, CAIN, Leanna Crawford, Anne Wilson, Baylor Wilson, and Hope Darst to The Story House in Nashville.

With five different options to watch - Friday, May 7, 7 and 10 p.m. ET; Saturday, May 8, at 7 and 10 p.m.; as well as Sunday, May 9, at 6 p.m. – various ticket options are available. Click here for more information or to purchase. 

"After a season dominated by the word 'separation,' I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been craving community," West said. "The closest I was able to get to many of my artist friends was an occasional songwriting session on Zoom. So, as the weather warms up and the country slowly opens, I invited some of my friends over to the Story House for a virtual event like none other we’ve done. This is a night filled with never-before-performed duets and collaborations, but most of all, this will be a night filled with songs of hope from some of my favorite artists, finally all together!"

Pearce said, "I love Matthew not only as an artist, but as a person. He has made his vision come to life with The Story House and from the moment I sang my vocals on ‘Truth Be Told’ there, I knew it was a special place. I’m excited for everyone to be able to be a part of that room."

Logan Cain of CAIN said, “ ‘West Friends Fest’ represents exactly what we think the music industry should be. Someone with as much success as Matthew could just have his own show, but he decided to share his platform with all of us. It truly is a sign of how collaborative and connected the Christian music community really is.”
