Emerging singer-songwriter and Nashville recording artist, Ryan Montgomery, released his debut single, “Drop a Tailgate”, on June 3rd and his self-titled debut EP on June 29th, 2018. 

“I’m so excited to share these songs with you all...I chose these 6 songs to include on my debut EP because not only are they some of my favorites, but they are also the types of songs I want to listen to and be identified with artistically.” 

Born and raised in South Florida, 20 year old Montgomery has been traveling back and forth from Florida to Nashville recording his debut EP at Castle Recording Studios in Nashville, TN with some of Nashville’s top session players.  

Montgomery’s debut EP featuring 6 songs written exclusively on his own, has a country / pop rock flavor with his debut single “Drop A Tailgate” leading the charge.  Fans are calling "Drop a Tailgate" the "Song of the Summer" and are already choosing their  favorites from Montgomery's recently released self-titled EP. 

“Writing and recording “Drop a Tailgate” has been such a fun experience that has allowed me to express and share some of the things I enjoyed while growing up in South Florida, specifically tailgating with family and good friends before the country concerts at our local amphitheater.”  

Besides songwriting, Montgomery loves performing and has the ability to entertain whether acoustically or “rocking out” on stage with his full 6-piece band.  He has an avid following with a large fan base and social media following who are packing shows and streaming / downloading his debut Single and EP...500,000+ streams and rising daily!

Montgomery's 2018-19 "Drop a Tailgate" Tour kicked off with a bang packing numerous shows near his South Florida hometown and will continue throughout venues in FL, GA, AL, MS, LA, TX and Nashville.

Montgomery has plans to be back at Castle Recording Studios by year end 2018 recording new music.


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 just 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.” 

 Born and raised in South Florida, 20-year-old Montgomery travels back and forth from Florida to Nashville writing, recording and playing live venues while also enrolled full-time at Florida Atlantic University in the BBA program.
