    Matt was well respected, loved & such a talented musician. He will be sorely missed.
    I’m grateful Taylor & the band celebrated Matt’s birthday in a heart-warming fashion; with the lit birthday cupcake. How special this must have been for Matt.
    God surround His loved ones with peace & cherished memories.?

    Loved the extra grove Matt’s instrument talent brought to the music we heard all summer as Taylor Hicks and his band toured the country and Matt Kimbrell was a pleasant and vibrant part of this new tone. I’ll miss his smiling face, his intensity, and the way he grooved to the music as he prepared to enter a song.

    Thanks for the music Matt. RIP.

    I’ve known Matt since we were teenagers, and I’ve played in bands with Matt and Leif B.. I’ve been so happy that both of them had a chance to play in Taylor. Matt was a good friend and a incredible musician, and he will be missed.
