If you like Vince Gill, Jackson Browne and the Eagles, you have to discover Kevin Montgomery with this new album released on october 2006.
Kevin Montgomery grew up on Nashville's Music Row, as a child of parents whose careers crossed over from country music to the early, seminal days of American rock 'n' roll. While the contemporary yet timeless feel of Kevin's own music is strongly influenced by the 'California Country-Rock' of artists like Gram Parsons, The Eagles, and Roger McGuinn, his deeply resonant songwriting recalls the Americana-flavored storytelling of Bruce Springsteen and Jackson Browne.
Having spent the last four years of a decade-long career touring relentlessly and building an almost cult-like following in England and Europe, Kevin Montgomery offers up thirteen engaging stories of life, love, laughter and loss on his third album, 2:30am.
A&M released Kevin's debut, Fear Nothing, in 1994 to critical acclaim, and after a year and a half of touring with Peter Himmelman, Sheryl Crow and David Crosby, he ended up back in Nashville. Kevin stayed on the radar by working on the 1996 Buddy Holly tribute album, Not Fade Away: Remembering Buddy Holly. He recorded the song "Wishing" (written by his dad) as a duet with Mary Chapin Carpenter (Bob Montgomery also co-produced the track).
Kevin was increasing his profile as a songwriter for Martina McBride, Juice Newton covered Kevin's song ‘Red Blooded American Boy' for her 1999 release, American Girl. Kevin also sang backing vocals on Lee Ann Womack's ‘I Know Why The River Runs' for her platinum selling album, I Hope You Dance.
