Biography

John Michael Montgomery (born January 20, 1965, in Danville, Kentucky is an American country music artist. He has produced more than thirty singles on the Billboard country charts, including two of Billboard’s Number One country singles of the year: “I Swear” (1994) and “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” (1995).

Besides these two songs, five more of Montgomery’s singles have reached the top of the country charts: “I Love the Way You Love Me”, “Be My Baby Tonight”, “If You’ve Got Love”, “I Can Love You Like That”, and “The Little Girl”, while thirteen more have reached Top Ten. Montgomery’s recordings of “I Swear” and “I Can Love You Like That” were both released concurrently with R&B versions by the group All-4-One. Montgomery has also released eleven studio albums, counting a Christmas album.

John Michael joined the family band (which also included his brother, Eddie Montgomery, who would later join Troy Gentry in the duo Montgomery Gentry) as guitarist before taking the lead singing role when his parents divorced. Afterwards, he made a frugal living on the local honky-tonk scene as a solo artist playing what he referred to as “working man’s country.” Eventually, Atlantic Records signed him.

    I definitely agree with Louis, every single time this guy performs you can see, hear, and feel the emotion is his music. Being a soldier myself most of the song John sings either remind me of myself, my friends , or my family. If you don't appreciate a genuine, compassionate, and inciteful person that fine but by no means is there a need to display your ignorance amongst a public area. In the words of Abraham Lincoln "It is better to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."
