Nashville recording / national touring artist, Ryan Montgomery, is excited to announce the release of his brand new single, BUZZED AT FIRST SIGHT, on January 4, 2020.
BUZZED AT FIRST SIGHT, Montgomery’s newest electric guitar driven single, is the 1st track on his 3-song EP that takes listeners on a journey from that first BUZZED AT FIRST SIGHT feeling...to BUY YOU A DRINK (May 10, 2019)...to the memories of when every night couldn’t last long enough...TIL THE SUN CAME UP (September 6, 2019).
“We've been playing this song at the live show and the energy from the audience has been crazy...I'm really excited for this one to finally be out."
BUZZED AT FIRST SIGHT follows the September 6, 2019 release of ’TIL THE SUN CAME UP and the May 10, 2019 release of BUY YOU A DRINK (#37 iTunes Country Chart) having 1,000,000+ combined streams on all platforms to date.
Montgomery released his debut single DROP A TAILGATE June 3rd, 2018 (#116 iTunes Country Chart) and self-titled 6-song debut EP June 29th (top 15 iTunes Country Chart, top 100 iTunes All Genres Chart) exceeding 2 Million combined streams on all platforms.

“I taught myself how to play guitar when I was 5 years old and started writing songs when I was 12 ... Now, I write a new song every day and as I’m writing I can hear what I want it to sound like instrumentally. Being able to carry this creative vision into the studio with me has enabled me to produce my own music and connect musically with the incredibly talented players in Nashville during tracking.”
All of Montgomery’s 2018-19 releases were recorded at Castle Recording Studios in Franklin, TN with Nashville's top session players and written exclusively by Montgomery.
Montgomery has a combined social media following of 85K+ with fans packing his shows and downloading/streaming his music.
Montgomery's 2019-20 Tour kicked off in June 2019 and will take him through Fl, GA, NC, SC, AL, MS, LA, TX, TN, and IL and other U.S. locations.
“Being able to connect with the audience at our live shows and bring the recorded versions of my songs to life and listening to the crowd sing the songs back at our shows creates such a good energy that once we hit the stage, I never want the show to end.”
Born and raised in South Florida, 21-year-old Montgomery travels back and forth from Florida to Nashville writing, recording, and touring while also enrolled full-time in FAU’s online BBA program.
From an early age... it was apparent to Ryan’s family and friends how drawn he was to music: drumming with any item that remotely resembled a drumstick, playing his guitar non-stop, listening to every genre of music available, and sitting in the front row at church to be close to the band.
"Music has always been my passion for as long as I can remember. When I was a little kid I used to sit absolutely transfixed whenever there was any kind of live music available to watch knowing that I wanted to perform like that one day."
Although music was always at the forefront, Ryan had other interests as a youth as well. Growing up in South Florida allowed Ryan to participate in numerous sports and his athleticism enabled him to excel in many including travel ice hockey, basketball, competitive waterskiing, surfing and bodybuilding.
Ryan was able to successfully balance school, sports and music throughout his elementary, middle and high school years and as he entered college made a decision to focus primarily on both his college education and music.
“My family has always supported me and encouraged me to set goals and work hard to achieve them...I am thankful for the gifts I have been given and am extremely blessed to be able to do what I love.”
