This marks Stell's second consecutive No.1 single.

Matt Stell’s “Everywhere But On” claims the top spot on both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week, marking Stell’s second consecutive No. 1 single.

The breakup anthem follows the chart-topping success of his platinum-selling debut, “Prayed For You.” With this accomplishment, Stell is only the seventh new artist to achieve that feat in the last five years.

The singer/songwriter says he is blown away by the success of the song.

“It is tough for me to be at a loss for words, but I am,” Stell admits. “As a songwriter, to experience this twice in a row is just the best feeling. There is a lot of me in this song and that makes this extra special. I am so grateful to country radio and all of the hard-working people on my team!”

Co-written by Stell, Paul Sikes and Lance Miller, “Everywhere But On” finds Stell singing about the aftermath of a breakup, admitting that he’s having a hard time getting over his ex.

“I’ve been from Savannah to Long Beach/ Trying to keep your memory out of reach/ But there you were in the Delta nights/ The Santa Fe sun, the Colorado sky/ I could add another push pin to the map/ But that don’t stop me from missing you and looking back/ Guess there’s just one place I haven’t gone/ I’ve moved everywhere but on,” he sings on the chorus.

“Everywhere But On” is featured on Stell’s new EP, Better Than That, which is available to stream and purchase now.
