The Owensboro Convention Center, proudly managed by Spectra Venue Management, in cooperation with the International Bar-B-Q Festival is excited to announce John Michael Montgomery is coming to Owensboro! On Friday, May 13 at 7:00pm, kick off the 2016 International Bar-B-Q Festival with John Michael Montgomery along with special guest, Jared Ashley in concert.
John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards, and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for cranking out hits such as “Life’s A Dance,” “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me,” “Be My Baby Tonight,” “Rope the Moon,” “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident),” and the moving tribute to military members, “Letters From Home.” Over the years, Montgomery has charted 18 Top 10 hits and 15 No. 1s, celebrating two Billboard “Country Songs Of The Year,” and achieving over 18 million albums sold. Along the way he has won four ACM Awards, two CMA Awards, one AMA Award and garnered three GRAMMY Award nominations, placing him among the most successful country acts in history.
Emerging singer and songwriter Jared Ashley shows his distinctive sound in his debut single “Last Train to Memphis.” Ashley was a finalist on season four of USA Network’s Nashville Star, where he set himself apart from a sea of 30,000 hopefuls.
