Country rocker Tim Montana is set to release his new album Long Shots on April 9, his first album with Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group.
The Montana native’s record will include 12 tracks which showcase his rock electric guitar and influences from the West which embraces hard and fast-living, the American experience and the blue-collar way.
“I heard ‘no’ from just about every record label around (more than once from some), but all my life I’ve never let outside factors stand in the way of my aspirations—instead the rejection fueled me to dig my heels in more, get a little scrappier and work even harder,” says Montana. “The fact that I’m now about to put out an album as a signed artist kind of blows my mind in the best way—I’m lucky enough to be six feet up instead of six feet under and I celebrate that every day.”
Montana teamed up with award-winning producer, Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Thomas Rhett) to build upon his sound which draws influence from the rural lifestyle with a hint of adrenaline. The music is country—but don’t mistake it for southern. Spending years out West and in Butte, Montana, fans will hear influences between Seattle and its grunge, Texas’ roadhouse, Nashville’s country, Wyoming’s Chris LeDoux and the Heartland’s rock.
Fans can get a taste of his new album with his new single “Get Em Up,” an anthem for the blue collar that celebrates the camaraderie, available now.
