About John Michael Montgomery & Eddie Montgomery

John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music's most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards, and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success, lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. Since the days when "Life's A Dance" turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael's rich baritone has carried that most important of assets--believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. You might catch Eddie Montgomery taking a quick glance at an empty space beside him when he and The Wild Bunch take the stage to play the expected duet hits as well as tunes from his brand-new and mostly raucous solo debut "Ain't No Closing Me Down." A solo artist of tragic circumstance, Eddie always feels the presence of the late Troy Gentry, his honky-tonking partner. "I think he'll have a blast with it, man," says Eddie of his late partner. "I think he's a part of it already. I'm sure he'll be with me."
