It’s easy to see why Montana’s music connects with so many people far and wide. Dubbed as one of Rolling Stone’s “Artists You Need to Know,” his musical influencers range from Merle Haggard to Guns N’ Roses. Montana’s passion for music has not gone unnoticed by his fellow musicians. “Tim is the real deal. He’s a little bit country with lots of hard rocks — or maybe he’s a rocker in touch with some serious country roots,” says ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.
Tim grew up in Butte, MT in a household that did not support his musical career. He quickly learned if he wanted to make a reality of out his passion to sing and play guitar, he had to escape Big Sky Country. He packed his bags and made his way to the heart of country music, Nashville, TN.
Soon after living in Nashville, a rodeo performance caught the attention of David Letterman. David was so impressed by Tim’s music, he personally invited Tim 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 with 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 Predator’s 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tim followed up with writing on Kid Rock’s current single, “Tennessee Mountain Top” and “Greatest Show On Earth” as well as Mac McAnally’s current hit, “Amarula Sun.”
In September 2017, Tim released his single, “Hillbilly Rich.” Rolling Stone called the song an, “an ode to fantasies about telling off your boss, making it rain, and having everything all at once.” Shortly after the song was released, Tim performed the single live on Fox & Friends.
Singer/Songwriter Kelsie May, has lived in the Eastern Kentucky mountains all her life. The vast number of superstars born and raised along Eastern Kentucky's Country Music Highway 23 is astounding, this leading many to believe there's something extra special about the hollers that surround the area. Kelsie May is yet another old soul to grace those hills and her fast success to stardom proves that.
Singing all her life, but not landing on a stage until 13, Kelsie has already contributed remarkable light into the Country Music world. After being quickly introduced to Bernard Porter, president and founder of PCG Nashville, the nation's leading artist
development company, she was invited to train at the coveted program in Nashville, Tennessee. "Kelsie is an incredibly gifted artist with an equally beautiful spirit. She's learned from some of the greatest artists in the world and incorporated a piece of each one into her own unique sound and style. The combination is stunning. We feel very privileged to work with her and help hone her God-given talent," states Porter.
Performing on the historic Wheeling Jamboree, being involved with Tunes for Tots with the Make A Wish Foundation, and having 3 chairs turn for her on the popular and Emmy award winning show, The Voice before even turning 16, proves to many that she is something special and is here to stay. Kelsie, ultimately choosing a position on Team Blake, has now performed right along side of acclaimed artists such as Jo Dee Messina, Jewel, Craig Campbell, Montgomery Gentry, John Michael Montgomery, Marty Stuart, Bucky Covington, Raelynn, and Eric Paslay. As well as going on tour with X Factor Season 2 Winner, Tate Stevens and country crooner, Ray Scott.
Since her successful run on the show, May has joined forces with industry veteran Bob Kinkead, CEO of the Kinkead Entertainment Agency, as well as grammy nominated, legendary country music songwriter and producer David Malloy to work on developing her and upcoming career. Malloy, who has 41 #1 hits to his credit, has worked with everyone from Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire to Julianne Hough and Billy Gilman.
While she may have a lot in common with other girls her age, she has distinctively unique dreams of her own. She has a deep desire to make a difference with her music and to be a positive role model. "I've always hoped to be a light to everyone, but especially my generation. I want to advocate that it's okay to go out do something that's a little out of the ordinary, it's actually more than okay to do something you love," Kelsie says.
Kelsie considers herself very blessed and with already such a long list of acknowledgements, everyone can see why. As this is only just the beginning of a lifelong and beautiful career.
