A few weeks ago I interviewed Matt Cornell about the 2023 Country on Keppel festival, for which he is a key artist. At the time he had laryngitis so we couldn’t talk for long, but given Cornell’s extensive CV – member of the Baby Animals, of Golden Guitar-nominated duo Cornell & Carr, and music director for Adam Brand for many years – there was more to talk about. So when he released ‘Stick Around’, his first solo single in several years, it was a good opportunity to find out more about his lifelong love of and working life in music.
