Matt Paul Wright was kind, friendly, and just an all round good guy who dedicated his life to the music he loved so much. With his radio show, his MC work and as a promoter of his own bluegrass shows, he was truly a friend of bluegrass. This couldn't have been more evident than with the support shown from musicians and friends alike at the benefit show given in his honor on this beautiful January day in Renfro Valley. Matt would have been proud!
