Wally Montgomery is a country rock singer guitarist with camera friendly looks and formidable chops to back them up. Drawing on wide-ranging influences that include Brad Paisley, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and Van Halen, Montgomery has concocted an appealing contemporary sound that seems almost perfectly balanced between rock and new country. Check out Wally’s formidable chops for yourself in this video of him performing his original guitar instrumental “Chicken Salad.”
Some guitarists just have it all. Brad Paisley, for one. The guy has figured out how to juggle his unabashed guitar geekiness with his enormous commercial success as a mainstream country star. Paisley moved to Nashville in 1993 with a full scholarship to attend Belmont University‘s music business program. Within a week of graduating college, he inked his first songwriting contract. Today, the prolific artist has almost released an album every year since his first in 1999.
