El Wencho, a two-man band from Bozeman, will open for Montana. For more information on this act, go online to elwencho.com.
According to the website, timmontana.com, Montana grew up in Butte and after high school moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue his musical career.
He got a lucky break when part-time Choteau resident and night-time variety show entrepreneur David Letterman heard him perform at a rodeo and invited him to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Montana continued to write and record which earned him a worldwide publishing deal with the Spirit Music Group. This led to an introduction to the rock band ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. The two of them collaborated on multiple different tracks including, “This Beard Came Here to Party,” which was the anthem for the Nashville Predators’ 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Montana followed up with writing on singer Kid Rock’s single, “Tennessee Mountain Top” and “Greatest Show On Earth” as well as Mac McAnally’s hit, “Amarula Sun.”
In September 2017, Montana released his single, “Hillbilly Rich.” Rolling Stone called the song “an ode to fantasies about telling off your boss, making it rain, and having everything all at once.” Shortly after the song was released, Montana performed the single live on Fox & Friends.
His albums include “Tim Montana and His Shrednecks,” “A Different Kind of Country,” “Rust and Red,” and “Iron Horse.”
