Montana shows 1,000 Faces
Monday, December 13, 2010
– Randy Montana was in downtown Nashville last Saturday to shoot the video for his upcoming new single 1,000 Faces.
The video for the song, written by Montana and Tom Douglas, was directed by Robert Deaton and George Flanigen. More than 60 extras were used to convert the closed city streets into a swarm of pedestrians around Montana and his band. To hear the single and see behind the scenes footage, visit www.randymontana.com and click on the van cam number 14 episode. The single will be available Jan. 4.
"I can't wait for everyone to see this video," said Montana. "Working with Robert and George was awesome. I had a great time talking with the extras and all the people that just walked up to see what all the noise was and why the street was blocked off. There was also a hammered drunk homeless man named Memphis that walked up in the middle of the shoot. He looked at me and said, 'If y'all let me dance, I'll make you more money.' I think he thought we were playing for tips."

CD reviews for Randy Montana
Randy Montana didn't have to go far from home to learn how to craft a song. His father is Nashville songwriter Billy Montana, who has written hits for the likes of Garth Brooks and Sara Evans. It seems his father taught him well; his debut album is full of radio-friendly, guitar-driven country. Montana's got a raspy, rough-edged voice, and the characters he writes match it well.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
