Tell us about performing at J.P. & Ashley’s wedding!
It was definitely an experience that I was happy to be a part of! The Bachelorette/Bachelor franchise has such a huge fan following, a lot bigger than I ever realized until I became part of it. It was fun to see all the fans who caught word of where the wedding was going to be and the crowd that gathered around the venue to catch a glimpse of J.P. and Ashley.
The security seemed as tight as the White House and the wedding was beautiful! Of course, it was filmed for TV so there were camera crews everywhere.
Did they contact you to play?
Yes, they wanted my song “Love” to be their first dance song so ABC contacted me about the right to have someone cover it. Instead, I volunteered to sing the song for them in person and be part of their big day!
What was your favorite moment from their wedding?
During the cake cutting ceremony, I was playing my new single “Love & Affection” and that was when it really showed me how much they are in love. It amazed me that they found love on TV — good for them!
Did you get to interact with any other guests?
I did meet Emily [Maynard] in the elevator.
What are some of your favorite most romantic songs of all time?
“Something In The Way” — The Beatles
“Cant Always Get What You Want” — The Stones
“Wonderful Tonight” — Eric Clapton
Tell us about your new EP “Love Songs”!
Love Songs is an acoustic set of 5 songs that I know my fans love. I have my new single “Love & Affection” on the EP. It will be hitting the radio next month and will be on my new album coming out in April 2013!
You can get the EP here.
Are you planning to tour in 2013?
Yes definitely! Make sure to check my website MattWhiteMusic.com.
