NIght on the Kaw

John Michael MontgomeryThe De Soto Chamber of Commerce and Great American Bank is proud to announce that John Michael Montgomery has been confirmed as the headliner for the June 22, 2013 Great American Bank's Night on the Kaw at De Soto Riverfest Park.

The Grammy-nominated country music super star has sold over 16 million albums with 15 number one singles, 4 American Country Music Association awards, 3 Country Music Association awards and an American Music Award. John Michael Montgomery was also the American Songwriter Magazine’s "Artist of the Year” and won 4 Billboard Awards (Single, Top Country Artist and Top Male Artist.)

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 picking hits. Since the days when "Life's A Dance" turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael's rich baritone has carried that most important of assets--believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. It is readily apparent in love songs that have helped set the standard for a generation. Songs like "I Swear," "I Love the Way You Love Me" and "I Can Love You Like That" still resonate across the landscape-pop icon and country newcomer Jessica Simpson cited "I Love The Way You Love Me" as an influence in a recent interview. It is apparent in the 2004 hit "Letters From Home," one of the most moving tributes to the connection between soldiers and their families ever recorded, and in "The Little Girl," a tale of redemption that plumbs both the harrowing and the uplifting. It is apparent even in the pure fun that has always found its way into John Michael's repertoire-songs like "Be My Baby Tonight" and "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)," where John Michael’s vocal earnestness takes musical whimsy to another level.

John Michael Montgomery is the fifth headliner for Great American Bank's Night on the Kaw event, joining country artists Tracy Byrd, Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chesnutt and Joe Diffie. This year will be the largest event ever with additional acts being added to the all-day lineup.
