The Jim Collins and Trent Tomlinson penned-track is a throwback to the dancehall favorites of the 90’s, with its grinding backbeat, screaming fiddle and catchy lyrics about turning goodbyes into cash and heartaches into paydays. The smokin’ track perfectly suits Montgomery’s deep, rich baritone and is a bit different than the material he usually cuts – something he was drawn to when selecting songs for his forthcoming Bart Butler-produced, pure country project.
“Trent Tomlinson sent this one to me. We were looking for a song that was kind of swampy, that had some attitude to it. This one stuck out to me, it’s definitely different from what I’ve recorded before. I’m always trying to push my comfort boundaries just to see if I can do it and pull it off. It was one of those songs I was on the fence about but I’m glad that we ended up doing it. I’m really excited about how it came together.”

“Lonely For A Livin’” is the latest offering from Montgomery’s upcoming EP due out later this year.
ABOUT WALKER MONTGOMERY
Chosen as an “Artist to Watch” by Country Now, Music Mayhem Magazine, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot and others, Walker Montgomery knows a thing or two about family tradition, but is also striving to build his own legacy. The 24-year-old son of John Michael Montgomery and nephew of Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery was raised away from the spotlight in Nicholasville, Kentucky, but moved to Nashville and is carving a path all his own on today’s country scene. Montgomery’s pedigree is matched only by his passion for real country music, and he’s already put his classically-inspired, honey-bourbon vocal to use on a self-penned debut hit (“Simple Town,” over 5.2 Million Spotify streams) and the romantic power-ballad, “She Don’t Know,” (featured on the 2022 RUST EP) has garnered the new artist over 20 million streams worldwide, in addition to his other story-building singles, the high-energy “Out of Nowhere” and good-time filled “Bad Day To Be A Beer”.
