Country Rocker Performs “Do It Fast” on FOX & Friends This Morning
Country rocker Tim Montana today released his label debut project, Cars On Blocks. In celebration, the Montana native appeared on FOX & Friends to talk about the EP and perform “Do It Fast.” The performance was captured in Tim’s garage in Nashville, which has been host to many performances from artists like Kid Rock and Billy Gibbons (of ZZ Top). Watch it HERE.
Cars On Blocks is Montana’s label debut, having recently been signed to Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group. The four-song EP is an ode to the unique city of Butte, Montana and his trailer park upbringing. The title track (inspired by his childhood home, which still has the wheels on it) and “River Kids” both paint a clear picture of the blue collar Butte life, with “Stronger Than You,” and its apocalyptic melody, displaying the grit acquired from that existence. Produced by award-winning producer, Michael Knox, the EP is Country—but don’t mistake it for southern. His sound, befitting of the off-the-grid thrill-seeker who grew up without electricity, draws influence from the rural lifestyle with a hint of adrenaline.
“Do It Fast,” with its “go big or go home” energy was written in tribute to Tim’s pal and X Games champion, Travis Pastrana as well as Travis’ idol and fellow Butte alum, Evel Knievel. The fast-paced song sonically reflects the sentiment of the lyrics, especially “the key to hard living is to do it fast.” The music video does the same with Pastrana starring alongside 70mph donuts in a Subaru, a flamethrower and will have you checking to see if you got mud in your hair.

“Cars On Blocks is really an ode to the junkyard dogs and how I grew up—it took me about a year to write the title track alone because I wanted to make sure people know that it’s a celebration of that low class, ‘if you’re not dirty, nobody trusts you’ mountain life. I am Butte American and damn proud of it.”
Chiefly considered a Country rocker, Montana is a true Renaissance man, moonlighting as a TV personality, marksman, father, husband, foodie, hell-raiser, businessman and—he’ll soon add film actor to his resume (he recently wrapped filming for The Last Son of Isaac LeMay alongside Heather Graham, Machine Gun Kelley and Thomas Jane). Joining the Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group roster is only the latest in Montana’s long list of accomplishments. In addition to starring in his own show, “Tim Montana’s Wild Side” on Velocity Outdoor Channel, Tim is involved in Polaris, Black Rifle Coffee, Fender, Gerber, Giant Bicycles, Indian Motorcycles, Kicker Performance Audio, Orange Amplifiers, Snap On, Traeger Grills, Whisker Bomb Pepper Sauce and more. Today, in celebration of his EP release, he will be taking over Polaris’ Instagram page at 3pm CT. Check it out HERE.
