Latest Song Shows the Artist’s Country Side

Nashville, TN (May 24, 2024) – Walker Montgomery shines on his newest offering “Leave Your Leaving Behind,” written by Ryan Tyndell, Clint Allen Daniels and Jeffery Don Hyde.  Produced by Bart Butler (Jon Pardi), the track steeped in fiddle and steel guitar wraps Montgomery’s velvet vocals in a melancholy embrace and is the first release from his forthcoming EP, out later this year.  STREAM HERE

“This song is one of the most interesting takes on a breakup that I’ve ever heard.  I love the way it paints an image and draws the listener in to how the breakup is going down,” says Walker.

“LOVE this record! Reminiscent of sawdust floors and the dancehalls I cut my teeth in on the road, I can’t help but feel for this guy as he tries to tame the torment of each verse … as each chorus offers the brief respite of tear-stained two-steps with faceless partners. Brought together with Montgomery’s hearty baritone and country introspection, ‘Leave Your Leaving Behind’ is a keeper.” Jeff McMahon, ACM-nominated keyboardist and host of the McMahon on Keys podcast.

“With his newest song, ‘Leave Your Leaving Behind’ Walker Montgomery brings new life to the “can’t get over you” country theme. With a modern production on traditional instrumentation, Montgomery’s robust baritone will be ringing in your ears as you commiserate alongside him in this memorable new tune.”  Bethany Bowman, Music/Entertainment Writer

“This is what real country music sounds like. A traditional sound with a modern flair. Add Walker’s vocals and that’s country right there.”  Tim Kelly – President KICR Indie Country Radio/The Tim Kelly Show

“’Leave Your Leaving Behind’ by Walker Montgomery is a heartbreak anthem with a bittersweet melody. The song’s lyrics resonate with anyone who’s ever been stuck in the aftermath of a love lost, their heart yearning for a chance to rewrite the ending.” Becky O’Connor, Founder, Country Evolution

“The latest single from Walker Montgomery is a throwback 90’s country song. Walker is representing country music with his neo-traditional sound and his latest single, ‘Leave Your Leaving Behind’ is a testament to great writing and great lyrics! Walker is the future of country music.” Brandon Morrell, Founder/Host, The Backstage Pass

Chosen as an “Artist to Watch” by Country Now, Music Mayhem Magazine, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot and others, Walker Montgomery knows a thing or two about family tradition, but is also striving to build his own legacy. The son of John Michael Montgomery and nephew of Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery was raised away from the spotlight in Nicholasville, Kentucky, but moved to Nashville and is carving a path all his own on today’s country scene. Walker made his Grand Ole Opry debut late last year and his pedigree is matched only by his passion for real country music, and he’s already put his classically-inspired, honey-bourbon vocal to use on a self-penned debut hit (“Simple Town,” over 5.2 Million Spotify streams).  His romantic power-ballad, “She Don’t Know,” (featured on the 2022 RUST EP) has garnered the new artist over 20 million streams worldwide, in addition to his other story-building singles, the high-energy “Out of Nowhere” and good-time filled “Bad Day To Be A Beer.” Walker has previously released singles from his ep WORK TO DO, the title track, “Lonely for A Livin,’” “Tired of You” and “Never Again One More Time,” as well as a collaboration version of “Never Again One More Time,” with Randy Rogers.  Walker’s new release is the first from his forthcoming EP produced by Bart Butler.
