Born in Danville, Kentucky in January of 1965, country artist and songwriter John Michael Montgomery joined his family’s band alongside his brother Eddie, who would move on to form the duo Montgomery Gentry. While he was playing as a solo artist later down the road, he was spotted by Atlantic Records, who recognized his talent and signed him as a recording artist.
Montgomery’s first album, Life’s a Dance, was released in 1992 and became the only million-seller on the country charts by a new artist. The album released three singles, including its Number Four hit title-track and the Number One hit “I Love the Way You Love Me.” Throughout the next decade, Montgomery would peak at Number One on the country charts six more times, with his singles “I Swear” (which also peaked at Number One on the Canadian Country charts and was certified Gold), “Be My Baby Tonight,” “I Can Love You Like That,” “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” and “The Little Girl.”
His single “I Love the Way You Love Me” was named the Single of the Year by the Academy of Country Music in the early 90s. He was also named the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Male Vocalist in 1993. The following year, CMA honored him with the Horizon Award, as well as the Single of the Year award for the song “I Swear.”
