– Matt Stillwell's tour bus was destroyed during last week's tornadoes in country. The vehicle was being service. Stillwell in his band were not in the area when the destruction occurred.
On Friday, March 2, violent storms touched down in at least a dozen states, including East Bernstadt, Ky. where Stillwell's tour bus was being serviced at Visone Automart.
"I've never seen or been a part of anything like this. I feel so bad for the people of east Kentucky and all the other areas that were hit with the storms last week," said Stillwell. "Thankfully my friends and band are all okay, and our bus is completely replaceable, but lives, homes, and businesses are gone and that's a shame. I'm praying for everyone involved."
The total damage of Stillwell's bus has not yet been determined, but plans to get back on the road to visit radio stations in support of his new single, Ignition, are still underway.
Stillwell is on the Average Joe's label.
