The son of a preacher, Matthew West never really considered following in his father’s footsteps.
“It’s too hard of a job,” West said by phone from his home in Nashville.
But this four-time Grammy nominated singer/song writer doesn’t consider himself a stereotypical rebel, either.
“I’d say, I haven’t really drifted too far from my father,” he said. “I guess in my own ways, I am a bit of a preacher.”
