I’m a long time John Michael Montgomery fan. It’s hard to believe that during all of my years of going to concerts, I have never seen John Michael in concert. He released more than a dozen albums, most of them are in my personal collection, and when I list my favorite country songs – many of them belong to John Michael Montgomery. Hopefully there will still be a chance for me to see him do a live show.
Danville, KY native John Michael Montgomery became one of the newest members of the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, inducted by brother Eddie Montgomery, of the country duo Montgomery Gentry, at a ceremony in Lexington, KY.
"I am tremendously gratified to be given this honor. Having my brother Eddie do the induction made it even more special," says Montgomery.
Montgomery burst onto the scene in 1992 with the release of the platinum-selling Life’s a Dance, an album that would yield singles including the title track and his first #1 hit, "I Love the Way You Love Me," which also achieved crossover success.
Montgomery would follow with unforgettable favorites including "I Swear," "Be My Baby Tonight," "I Can Love You Like That," "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)," "The Little Girl," "Letters From Home" and more.
With a musical career that spans twelve albums and a greatest hits package, John Michael Montgomery’s overwhelming contribution to the country music format includes 15 number one singles, over 15 million albums sold and numerous industry and fan-voted awards, including three Grammy nominations, three CMA Awards, five ACM Awards and an American Music Award.
John Michael Montgomery continues to tour extensively.
I am going to attempt going to the office today. I’m supposed to be ‘beyond contagious’ – thanks to the antibiotics. So I’ll head on in and see if I can make the full day. After the past 3 days of being sick, I got used to just getting back in bed whenever I wanted to. Wonder if the sofa in the lobby will be available for my little naps. Hope you all have a great Tuesday!
Talk to you soon!
