Tornado Destroys Matt Stillwell’s Tour Bus In Kentucky
Singer And His Band Are Safe
Country Singer Matt Stillwell lost his tour bus March 2 when violent storms ravaged much of the country, including an automart in East Bernstadt, Ky., where his bus was being serviced. Stillwell and his band were not on the bus, nor in the area where the tornados touched down, but you can see the damage caused to the bus in this photo.
“I’ve never seen or been a part of anything like this,” Stillwell said in a press statement. “I feel so bad for the people of East Kentucky and all the other areas that were hit with the storms last week, Thankfully my friends and band are all OK 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 he plans to get back on the road shortly to visit radio stations in support of his new single, “Ignition.” Stillwell is signed to Colt Ford’s record label, Average Joe’s Entertainment.
