Montana is already making a powerful statement with his new single and forthcoming debut project, to which critics have quickly taken notice. USA Today’s Brian Mansfield called Montana’s “1,000 Faces” his first favorite song of 2011, while People calls him “a must-hear artist.” Southern Living named Montana as one of five “Best New Artists” in its Best of the South issue, stating, “The raspy-voiced Montana, a standout among his ‘I’m more country than you peers,’ breaks the genre’s mold but respects its heritage.”
Roughstock.com says “1,000 Faces” is “an ethereal experience of epic proportions,” adding, “…Montana has a song that is a once-in-a-career kind of song, the kind of obvious, star-making or career-defining hit that every singer is looking for (and many never find.)” Music Row calls “1,000 Faces” “a sonic masterpiece” and says, “…this ultra-melodic outing is the kind of single that makes a star.”
While recently on tour with Sugarland and Little Big Town, Montana began to see firsthand the strong and immediate connection people have to “1,000 Faces,” and that was months before it was played on country radio. “It’s incredible to play that song live,” says Montana, who wrote it with Tom Douglas. “People come up and say, ‘1,000 Faces’ was my favorite song of the night.’ It’s fun to play it live because you get this whole burst of energy yourself.”
