John Michael Montgomery Says Goodbye to Touring

Country music star John Michael Montgomery, who rose to fame in the 90s with hits like "Be My Baby Tonight" and "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)" is hanging it up. Apparently more than 30 years of life on the road is enough for Montgomery, who is the younger brother of Eddie Montgomery of the Montgomery-Gentry duo.

John Michael will turn 59 later this month on January 20th and took to his social media pages on New Year's Day to announce his retirement. "HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!" the post on Facebook read. "I hope everyone enjoyed bringing in 2024 and may it be a wonderful one for all my friends out there. For me it will be the start of my farewell tour as I have decided to wind down my touring career over this year and 2025."

Montgomery went on to share that he's had a "wonderful run" since 1992 when his first song "Life's A Dance" was released to radio. He also said that he has been fortunate and blessed to be able to do what he loves for so many years.

The official John Michael Montgomery website already has tour dates listed for January, March, April, May and October of 2024. No dates for 2025 have been listed yet. Montgomery has had seven number one hits throughout his career on Billboard, the latest being the song "The Little Girl" which was at the top of the charts for three weeks in the year 2000.

Montgomery was born in Danville, KY in 1965.
