The name says it all. Tim Montana hails from rural Montana where his love for music was inherent from the beginning. Tim gravitated toward music at a young age when he would get CD’s from his stepdad’s pawn shop and began listening to old school rock n roll bands such as ZZ Top, Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Charlie Daniels Band. Growing up living off the grid in Big Sky country, Tim’s guitar became his best friend and a vessel of happiness. His persistent pursuit of his newfound passion sparked a desire to move to the west coast and go to music school. Tim eventually made his way to Nashville where he would continue to pour himself into songwriting and doing some rockin’ out of his own.
Tim has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman, and his song “This Beard Came Here to Party” was made the Boston Red Sox’s unofficial theme song during their Word Series Championship season. He was featured in Rolling Stone, and has been deeply involved with our U.S. troops. When he’s not busy on the road, Tim gets down with wood-fired smokin’ on his Traeger. Properly educated on all things meat by Pitmaster Chad Ward, Montana loves making brisket, prime rib, and even some down-home apple pie every now and then. Low n’ slow is the motto for our All-American Shredneck. Tim beats to the drum of red, white, and blue, rock n’ roll with country soul, and good ole BBQ. Now, that’s a tune we can rock out to.
I only smoke when I drink, and with the Traeger, I smoke everyday!
