We are extremely excited to announce six of the artists for this year’s Courtyard Texas Music Series! Going into its 8th year, this series continues to bring top names from Texas Music to Plano, featuring both well-known artists and emerging talent.
You can call it prescient or predetermined, but when Terry Lickona, undisputed tastemaker and producer of Austin City Limits, plucked a then relatively unknown guitar talent to tape a segment of the legendary show, one had the sense that this was just the beginning.
Since that jaw dropping performance, Monte Montgomery has embarked on an almost fantasy like rock and roll roller coaster ride filled with dizzying accomplishments and mind blowing accolades. Named one of the “Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitar Players” by Guitar Player Magazine, he’s been called everything from “guitar-god” to the “answer to the Fermi Paradox”. With the release of his eponymous CD, he cements his place as not just a blazingly electrified acoustic guitar player, but a songwriter, singer and master musician. His new project stands out as a throwback to the great pop rock records of the past, showcasing his stylistic diversity.
