About John Michael Montgomery
Nothing beats good ole talent when it comes to being an artist and in the case of John Michael Montgomery, that rings clear as a bell. No tricks, or secret in's to the music business made one of country music's biggest stars, Montgomery would make his way into the country world like the real american the music represents, hard work and talent. John Michael Montgomery was born in Danville Kentucky to musical parents that imparted their love and talent to their eldest son. John and his brother Eddie, would grow up watching and listening to their parents play and entertain friends and family and soon join the family bands as they matured. The brothers would be taught guitar by their father as well as learn from his magnetism in drawing a crowd, both John and Eddie would team up with some of their local friends and begin the band "Montgomery Gentry." The clever name wasn't the only thing that brought record scouts flocking to their shows, The brothers Montgomery had a natural talent and stage show that just wowed audiences of country music. Seeing the potential in the group but the power in John Michael, the hometown band of Montgomery Gentry would be left behind as record executives from Atlantic Records snatched up John and his stellar songwriting talent. The early nineties would prove to be a veritable hot bed for the newly discovered country star as John Michael Montgomery began to define the country sound of the decade.
Beginning his solo career with Atlantic Records, Montgomery would find his first bit of mainstream success with his first album "Life's a Dance." The records title track would rocket the Kentucky baritone singer to the number four spot on the Hot Country Songs chart and soon thereafter to the number sixty spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The whole album would mark a start to a fast and tremendous career of outstanding country music as Montgomery's first album soon went triple platinum by the RIAA after selling three million copies. Not one to slow down, Montgomery would continue his musical success with a follow up album that would out shine "Life's a Dance" with a debut as number one on the country and number 42 on the pop charts with the infamous track "I Swear." The single would become one of Montgomery's most notable songs and would wow audiences so much that the song would even be covered by other artists in other genres adding more fame to his work. In a startling contrast the R&B world would be the champion for spreading Montgomery's hits across the globe as tracks such as "I Swear" and later "I Can Love You Like That" would gain even more popularity from other artists. Across the board Montgomery's country career would not only satisfy country music fans but also translate amazingly well to other audiences of all musical genres, a trait that Montgomery would say he had learned from his father as a child in the early days of his musical training.
John Michael Montgomery as an artist, let alone a country one, has crafted some of the most amazing and splendid country/pop hits of the nineties. Hits like "I Swear" and "I Can Love You Like That" would become so popular that R&B act All-4-One would cover them and translate his top hits to other audiences that would have typically never listened to country. Other hits include "Life's a Dance" from his first album that would be the catalyst to his breakout career in country music, as well as "I Love the Way You Love Me" would continue his tour de force as an amazing songwriter.
While living with his parents and learning music John Michael Montgomery would join the family band playing guitar, only to later move to lead singer once his parents divorced. The band that John and brother Eddie would form would pair them with friend Troy Gentry and the cleverly devised "Montgomery Gentry" moniker. After an off key performance of the National Anthem at a NASCAR rally, Montgomery would announce to fans and the world that he was suffering from a condition known as acoustic neuroma where a cancerous tumor had inhibited the nerves from his brain to his ear; the disease was treated and Montgomery made a full recovery.
