Walker Montgomery

 Play It Again Entertainment’s flagship artist and emerging singer-songwriter Walker Montgomery launches a new 10-episode digital series “Influenced By” where the Kentucky native talks about the artists who have had an influence on him and helped to shape him as an artist and songwriter. The weekly series is available on YouTube and across his social media channels. A new episode airs each week.

Montgomery kicks off his new series “Influenced By” with one of his heroes Luke BryanWatch HERE.

Growing up and listening to music with his Mom who was a fan of artists like Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and Helen Forrest, Montgomery immersed himself in all of these genres of music and became a big fan of jazz and big band music and found these artists and musical styles had a big influence on him as an artist. Episode 2 of “Influenced By” released last week features Montgomery talking about one of his biggest influences Glenn Miller, one of the most popular American big-band artists to emerge from the swing era during WWII. Watch HERE.

“Growing up, I was blessed to be influenced and exposed to a wide range of different artists, music and songs, whether that was country, bluegrass, gospel or big band,” says Montgomery. “It all influenced the music that I make today.” 

The emerging artist Montgomery released his new up-tempo feel-good single “Bad Day To Be A Beer” in late 2020 and will have more music coming soon.

“Bad Day To Be A Beer” follows on the heels of Play It Again Entertainment’s releases of “Saving For A Rainy Night” and “Like My Daddy Done It” which he released earlier this year. In 2018, Montgomery released a debut EP, Simple Town, which he released independently and has already hit 9 million streams (including 4 million streams for the EPs title track).  The rising singer-songwriter, prior to the COVID pandemic, has also been busy building a fan base on the road with 100+ paid shows a year.

Montgomery’s new music is produced by the multi-award winning No. 1 hit songwriters The Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip) who have a combined 73 No. 1 songs between them and multiple songwriting awards.
