Randy Montana Releases Debut Album
By Sarah Wyland
Randy Montana‘s self-titled debut album is now on store shelves. Randy co-wrote 9 of the 11 songs on the album, which includes his debut single “Ain’t Much Left of Lovin’ You” and his current single, “1,000 Faces.” “I am so excited to finally get this music out there,” Randy told GAC’s Nan Kelley on a recent visit to the GAC studio. “For people to finally hear the full length album is really exciting.”
After working to first write the songs then record and finish the album, Randy was anxious to get it to his fans. While the date was circled on his calendar, he had other career opportunities that made the waiting period go fast, like opening for Taylor Swift and playing shows across the country.
“It flew by,” Randy told Nan. “My schedule is so busy it’s like a date just kind of becomes a number, you know what I mean? You don’t really count the weeks off or anything like that. For this, I was so excited that I did count the weeks off, but I tell you what, there’s just so much going on that time just flies by.”
Of the songs Randy is credited as a songwriter on, he co-wrote four of them with his famous songwriter father, Billy Montana. Billy is credited with writing hit songs including Garth Brooks‘ “More Than A Memory,” Sara Evans‘ “Suds In The Bucket” and Jo Dee Messina‘s “Bring on the Rain.” Randy talked with Nan about working with his dad and what it was like growing up with a father in the music business.
