MTS Management Group and MTS Records are happy to announce the release date for Matt Williams’ first solo single, “Make Love Tonight.” The single features a duet with another Ontario, Canada-based artist, Alyssa Morrissey. “Make Love Tonight” (MTS Records) will be available on itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Spotify and all online music retailers on May 12th,with radio promotion for the track beginning the same day. Matt is one-third of country-pop trio, Western Avenue, who scored a radio hit, “Wherever You Are,” earlier this year.
“We are really excited about this new single from Matt and Alyssa,” said Michael Stover of MTS. “The track features the catchy melodies and polished harmonies of Western Avenue, but with just a little more edge to it. Think if Def Leppard went country. Not only do I think this song will do very well at country radio, but AC and Pop radio should be all over it, too. I look forward to this release doing every bit as well as the WA single. There’s a steamy video in production, too. With Matt attending CMA Fest and planning a radio tour in support, I think this summer is going to be a hot one for Mr. Williams.” Watch Matt and Alyssa perform their cover of Thompson Square’s “If I Didn’t Have You” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgyk_z7eDjo.
