Broken down bus leads to marriage
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
– A broken down bus is usually not a cause for celebration, but for Average Joe's artist Matt Stillwell, it was.
Stillwell and his longtime girlfriend, Lindsey Crawford, were on a broken down bus in Las Vegas in between radio station visits when they decided to tie the knot.
"This is the first time I can say I was happy for my tour bus to break down," said Stillwell. "I am so excited to be married to such a beautiful woman, inside and out. She is a wonderful mama to our baby Carolina and my best friend."
The Stillwells got hitched last Thursday, March 22 at the Vegas Wedding Chapel. They went on the cheap for their wedding reception - they stopped to refuel their bus at a Pilot/Flying J and ordered KFC.
Stillwell is currently visiting radio stations and performing in support of his new single Ignition.
