Today, four-time Grammy Nominee and Dove Award winning artist Matthew West dropped his newest song, "Truth Be Told". This is West's third single to be released in 2019 in his new joint venture with Provident Label Group/Sony Music and his imprint Story House Music
"This song is an honest attempt by me to be, well, honest. Authenticity is easier said than lived," West shared on social media when speaking about the inspiration behind his new song. "I think deep down we all like the idea of showing who we really are, warts and all, to the world. But allowing others to see the rough-around-our-edges, is a scary thing. What will people think? How will they judge me when they know I’m anything but perfect?"
West added, "The crazy thing is, the truth is already told when it comes to God. Scripture says nothing in our lives is hidden from Him. For someone who hasn’t discovered the freedom of grace, the thought of a God knowing about the worst parts of your life can really freak you out. But to understand that there is a God that sees every secret sin, every struggle, every thought, every mistake, and loves you still- that is a freedom like no other."
West is currently working on more new music that will be released over the coming months. This fall he is partnering with Duck Dynasty's Willie & Korie Robertson and Winning At Home's Dan Seaborn for the couples-focused Getaway Night Tour sponsored by Compassion International.
