Justin talks about Matt on Tennman Records
From a Q&A
with Justin on EW:Have you signed any other artists?
The second act that I've signed is a good friend of mine, his name is Matt Morris, and he's actually a co-writer with me. He's kind of like Ray LaMontagne meets Elton John meets Stevie Wonder meets Rufus Wainwright. With digital downloading, now more than ever it's time for the birth of the hybrid artist. I'm anxious to create an artist that all the press has trouble labeling. To me, there's two kinds of music: There's good music and there's bad music. So what we're going to do is try to stay away from the latter. [laughs]When have you worked with Matt in the past?
There's one song that he co-wrote with me on FutureSex/LoveSounds. It's the last song on the record. He's written songs for Christina Aguilera, he's written songs for Kelly Clarkson. He's an amazing pop songwriter. But he also has this folk side to him that fits in for his own voice, and that's how I hope to introduce him to the world. I'm actually looking forward to, after this initial press break, not talking about the label so much and just getting the music out of the artists — so people invest in the artists and not the fact that it's our label. I mean, a label's a label, but if you don't have talent, you don't have good songs, it really doesn't mean s---.
Awesome that Justin's going to help put Matt's music out - but no mention of MMC, I notice...

Justin, Reba, and Matt, oh my
From here: http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2007703200344Justin and Reba make beautiful music together
By BEVERLY KEEL
There was a mutual admiration society Saturday at Starstruck Studios when Justin Timberlake sang with Reba McEntire on the song he co-wrote for her upcoming duets album.
"I think everybody will be surprised by the song we did," says producer Tony Brown. "I know Reba and I were surprised when he pitched us the song in Los Angeles."
Justin penned "The Only Promise that Remains" with good friend Matt Morris, our own phenomenally talented singer/songwriter (Christina Aguilera has cut his stuff) who is the son of country crooner Gary Morris. Brown describes it as a Celtic love song.
"It was all very organic, with a dobro and fiddle, upright bass and two acoustic guitars," he says. "It was a really beautiful folk song."
Thanks to ilovethebooti

Finally some news!
Dear M@ Pack Members,
Many of you have seen the cover and article on Justin Timberlake in the September 23, 2006, issue
of Rolling Stone which went on sale September 9th. For those who have not, I am listing the link
to their website and the article page mentioning Matt: http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/11514699/justin_timberlake_revs_up_his_sex_machine/3
Also listed are links to two (2) Memphis Commercial Appeal articles you might find interesting: http://www.commercialappeal.com/mca/music/article/0,1426,MCA_505_4993875,00.html http://www.commercialappeal.com/mca/television_video/article/0,2850,MCA_25370_4997867,00.html
Although there has been very little correspondence from the M@ Pack during the past several
months, there has been a great deal of work going on behind the scenes with Matt's career as an artist.
Until a formal announcement is made, we will be unable to share any additional information, other
than what appeared in the Rolling Stone and Commercial Appeal articles. In the meantime, you
might enjoy listening to a song Matt and Justin co-wrote on Future Sex/Love Sounds titled "Another
Song" (All Over Again). There's also a new photo on Matt's site, www.mattmorris.net.
Matt has appreciated the words of encouragement in your e-mails and your continued interest in his
music. On his behalf, I would like to thank you for your loyalty and support.

From an email I received tonight from email@example.com.Dear M@ Pack Member,
While Matt was in New York recently, he had the honor of playing acoustic guitar on a remix of the song, "In The Sun", performed by artist Michael Stipe, featuring Chris Martin of Coldplay. The remix was done by JAW Breakers' Justin Timberlake and Will.I.Am.
The album is titled "In The Sun", and it is only available on iTunes. The cost is $4.95. As proceeds from the sale of this album benefit the survivors of Hurricane Katrina, this remix version is not available for individual downloads. If you would like to read more about the project, we are listing the link for your convenience: http://www.inthesun.org.
We hope you will consider purchasing this album for such a worthy cause.

Anyone have any Matt icons?

From mtv.com Justin Timberlake is writing songs with his longtime friend/ Nashville songwriter Matt Morris. Morris, who co-wrote five songs on Christina Aguilera's Stripped, said that the two will hit the studio in the next couple of months, and that their creations run the gamut from R&B to Southern rock to pop music and could end up on either Timberlake or Morris' album at this point. "Writing with Justin is one of my favorite things," Morris said. "He's got incredible instincts, unmatched by anyone I've worked with." The two have written at least an album's worth of songs, about 15 to 20, he said, but since the subject matter is so personal, discussing them "should be reserved for close friends and therapists," he laughed. ...

rumors rumors rumors
Dear M@ Pack Members,
In case you've heard, MTV.com ran a story yesterday in their "News - For The Record" section
stating that Matt had filed suit against Christina Aguilera in Davidson County Court for nonpayment of
royalties relating to five songs he co-wrote on her CD "Stripped".
We wanted to let you know that this story is untrue, and it was removed immediately by MTV from
their website. Matt is not suing Christina!

's lj, from today's MTV.com For the Record column:
Christina Aguilera needs to pay up, according to songwriter Matt Morris, who filed a lawsuit against the pop star last week in Nashville's Davidson County Court, claiming he has yet to be paid in full for co-writing five songs on her Stripped album. Morris co-wrote "Underappreciated", "Can't Hold Us Down," "Walk Away," "Infatuation" and "Loving Me 4 Me."
