“I’m gonna keep doing this until they run me off!”
After over 30 years of writing country music in Nashville, running Monty off doesn’t seem very likely. Monty’s love of traditional country music was first instilled in him as a child growing up in Lubbock, Texas. With a rich musical history, Lubbock provided a nurturing environment for young Monty. His grandfather (who played fiddle, guitar, and piano) exposed him to a great record collection and artists like Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams. Half asleep in the back seat of a green Ford Torino, somewhere between Lubbock and Louisiana, an 18-year-old Monty heard the voice of Merle Haggard on the radio. Then and there, he decided country music would be his life’s work. From Ray Price to the Rolling Stones, Holmes’ songs reflect his varied musical influences. As a young adult, Holmes formed a band and moved to Austin. It was there that he recorded the song “In the Arms of a Beautiful Woman”, which became his first regional radio hit. In 1983, Monty took the plunge and moved to Nashville. There he took a job as a respiratory therapist to pay the bills, but he also worked diligently as a staff writer and singer on demo recordings. Through his demo work, Holmes quickly gained a reputation for his voice, but it was songwriting that he really loved. Throughout the years, Monty has worked with and learned from the best: Whitey Shafer, Hank Cochran, Glenn Martin, Don Sampson, Donnie Kees, Tony Mullins, Gerry House, Kent Blazy, Leslie Satcher, Scotty Emerick, Brice Long, Al Anderson, Jon Randall, Norro Wilson, Wynn Varble, Buddy Cannon and Phillip White, to name a few. Monty has been a staff writer for country music institutions Acuff- Rose Publishing Company, Combine Music, Malaco/Peer Music and EMI Music publishing. Holmes has penned several hit songs for George Strait, including the chart topper “I Know She Still Loves Me,” the top five “When Did You Stop Loving Me,” and from the 2009 Grammy award winning Country Album of the Year, “Troubadour” and “House of Cash.” In 2009, “Troubadour” was honored with the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International’s “One of the 10 Songs I Wish I Had Written” award, which is voted on by fellow songwriters. Monty co-wrote Lee Ann Womack’s debut single, “Never Again, Again,” as well as “What I Do the Best” for John Michael Montgomery. He has had additional cuts by Sunny Sweeney, Gene Watson, Rhonda Vincent, Colt Ford, Joanna Smith, Clay Walker, Neal McCoy, Lane Turner, Laura Bryna, the legendary Johnny Bush and George Jones. Holmes is currently an ASCAP writer, but is a multiple BMI “million-air,” an honor for writers of songs with over 1 million broadcast performances. Monty travels across the country performing for corporations, fans and charitable benefits. In recent years, Monty has rediscovered his love of wood working through his company, Storied Design.
No stranger to hard work, Taylor Goyette literally crawled through a river of shit to get where he is today – constantly releasing new music and writing songs full time in Nashville, TN – including Whitney Daane (Kobalt: Maverick) who signed Taylor to her Kobalt joint venture Oaangerous Entertainment in August 2019. Only 5 short years ago, while many of his peers were heading off to college, Taylor went to work pouring cement, laying sod, and…yes…trudging through excrement while cleaning sewers in Cape Coral. Florida – saving up money till he could hang up his badge at the water reclamation department, thoroughly wash his hands, and follow his dream to Music City. It was quickly obvious to everyone he encountered that Taylor had brought that work ethic with him when he moved to Nashville, paying his dues with a smile as he relentlessly made the rounds through writers rooms and the local stages – ultimately catching the attention of Trey Bruce (Emmy winning songwriter: discovered/signed Chris Janson and Brothers Osboume) who signed Taylor to a management deal with his company GaloreMGMT in the Fall of 2018.
As an artist. Taylor has many eclectic influences that range all over the spectrum of american music, dating back to the days of Hank Williams. Elvis Presley, Bruce Springsteen and more recently Eric Church. A breath of fresh air, with his energetic charisma and powerful stage presence, it’s no doubt that he awaits the big time playing to sold out arenas one day.
