2013 CMT Song Winner Songwriter Matt Casey is a Boston native who has been traveling to Nashville regularly since 2010.  Matt grew up listening to more Bruce Springsteen than Merle Haggard, but he quickly fell in love with country music and the Nashville co-writing process that enabled him to be a part of the songwriting community as a lyricist. Matt was named “One To Watch” by the Nashville Songwriters Association International  in 2011 and founded New England To Nashville, a group that has grown to 270 songwriters with New England roots who travel to or now reside in Twang Town. He is also founder of the Martha’s Vineyard Songwriters Festival which featured Steve Seskin, Steve Bloch, Jim McCormick, Will Robinson, and Brian Maher in 2013, and will include Jason Blume, Marty Dodson, and Clay Mills in 2014. Matt recently was a finalist in the 2013 “Songs that Save” contest benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for a song he co-wrote with Maureen Fichten called “In The Middle of Nowhere”.  He has now joined forces with Keith Dozier and Allen Shervelle in launching North East Of Nashville (NEON) Publishing. Matt and Keith recently won the National Songwriters Association International (NSAI) Country Music Television (CMT) Song Contest with his song “Plain White Tee” that he co-wrote with Keith and David Wagner.
