The Little Girl

Just listening to the song The Little Girl makes this album amazing! So... before you continue with reading this review, listen or buy the clip of this song... Did you do it yet?... How about now?... Okay, this song is really amazing. Just the whole story is amazing. To get the whole effect, you need to listen with your whole heart into it. It is one of those sad songs that really let you stop in your busy life and think. If you liked this song, then you should try The Christmas Shoes by NewSong. It is a similiar song. It also has the effect of being able to stop your busy day and think about things. I did a presentation for one of my classes. The room was filled with busy teenagers. During my presentation, I played the song. I was able to make everyone quiet, for a first, and really pay attention in class. The whole rest of the day, my peers were telling me how they liked the song. Remember, these are hip-hop and underground rock loving teens who were able to appreciate these wonderful songs. Enjoy! Also, check out Skin! It is another sad song with a story in it, not just a repeating chorus!



This album is by far the best JMM has ever done. If you buy this album there is no reason to buy anything else. Sold is a great song for any country fan. I can love like that and home to you i think are the most romantic songs ever. Every song he made that is worth listening to is on this album why wait? This Album ROCKS.. AND ROLLS

About John Michael Montgomery

Part of the '90s wave of honky tonk hitmakers that brought country to new commercial heights, John Michael Montgomery made his name primarily as a romantic balladeer. Yet despite his sometime adult contemporary leanings, his vocal style remained solidly grounded in country tradition. Montgomery was born in 1965 in Danville, KY, near Lexington and learned guitar from his father, a local musician. He first performed in public at age five with his father's band, which also featured his mother on drums. By 15, he was performing regularly on the local scene and at 17 became the lead singer of a group with his father and brother after his parents divorced. Following high school, he played around the local honky tonk circuit and was discovered at a favorite venue in Lexington, which led to a contract with Atlantic in 1991. Montgomery issued his debut album in 1992, titling it after the lead single, "Life's a Dance." The song rocketed into the Top Five, and its follow-up, "I Love the Way You Love Me," went all the way to number one, helping the album climb into the country Top Five. That set the stage for 1994's Kickin' It Up, a bona fide, multi-platinum blockbuster that topped both the country and pop charts and made Montgomery a star. Three number one country hits -- "I Swear," "Be My Baby Tonight," and "If You've Got Love" -- sprang from the album as well as another Top Five hit, "Rope the Moon." A self-titled 1995 follow-up also topped the country charts and kept Montgomery's hit streak alive with the number one smashes "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)" and "I Can Love You Like That," plus more Top Fivers in "No Man's Land," "Cowboy Love," and "Long as I Live." Late in 1995, Montgomery was forced to take time off for surgery to repair his vocal cords. Montgomery recovered in time to put out What I Do the Best in 1996. "Friends" and "How Was I to Know" both hit number two, and "I Miss You a Little" was also a Top Ten hit. A Greatest Hits compilation was released in 1997, and Montgomery returned in 1998 with Leave a Mark, which found him continuing to move into more polished territory. "Cover You in Kisses" and "Hold on to Me" were the Top Five hits this time out. Things got even smoother on the very adult contemporary-styled Home to You, which appeared in 1999 and whose title cut reached number two on the country charts. Still, Montgomery's crossover-friendly approach was beginning to affect his sales in the country marketplace. 2000's Brand New Me featured a higher percentage of up-tempo tracks, and it peaked at number two on the country charts; plus, his duet with Alison Krauss, "The Little Girl," gave him another number one hit. His next album, 2002's Pictures, was an attempt to move into more mature, adult territory, while 2003 saw a holiday album, Mr. Snowman, appear. Letters from Home arrived in 2004. Montgomery moved to Stringtown Records and released Time Flies in 2008.. ~ Steve Huey
