Learn More About Walker Montgomery
Walker Montgomery is a country singer-songwriter who knows a thing or two about family tradition, but he’s an artist making his own legacy. The 21-year-old son of John Michael Montgomery and nephew of Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery, the emerging star was raised away from the spotlight in Nicholasville, Kentucky. But now that he’s found that spotlight on his own, Montgomery’s pedigree is matched only by his country passion. Signed to Play It Again Entertainment and produced by a chart-topping team known to the world as The Peach Pickers – Dallas Davidson (27 career Number Ones); Ben Hayslip (four-time CMA Triple Play Award winner); and Rhett Akins (31 career Number Ones) – he’s already put his classically-inspired, honey-bourbon vocal to use on a self-penned hit debut (“Simple Town,” over 5 Million Spotify streams). A pair of story-building singles followed – the high-energy “Like My Daddy Done It” and passionate “She Don’t Know” which has reached over 5 Million streams – and there’s more on the way. Montgomery and his team have already logged countless hours in the studio, as the breakout talent works to hone his lyrical honesty and integrity, plus a lived-in sound that brings country’s past into the present tense. “I want my music to stand the test of time and connect with people no matter who they are,” he says. “I learned from my family that the way you do that is by being true to yourself, and that’s the reason I’m here. That’s the reason I get up every day and do what I do – to help take care of the family name, and make them proud.”
