Raised in the wilds near Butte, Montana, Tim Montana (yes, it’s his real name), entered the world as an off-the-grid thrill-seeker. He and his buddies would take to the nearby mountains to fish, hunt and raise hell as an escape from their rustic home lives — Montana grew up without electricity. Soon, however, he sought out a different high: the kind that only comes from performing live music. Eager to perfect the guitar playing he began when he was just 6 years old, he moved to Los Angeles to put his time in studying his craft.
And he has yet more irons in the fire. His song “Asphalt Throwdown” is being used by Fox Sports for its NASCAR telecasts, the raucous “Hillbilly Rich” appears in the Action Figures 2 film, and the original composition with Gibbons “American Dresser” soundtracks the Tom Berenger movie of the same name. All of this builds on what Montana has already accomplished since breaking out of Butte all those years ago.
Montana is a vocal supporter of U.S. military veterans. After watching the film American Sniper (which tells the story of U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle), Montana became involved in the welfare of veterans suffering from Posttraumatic stress disorder. He approached Gibson guitars to create a custom Chris Kyle guitar, decorated with Kyle's skull-and-crosshairs logo. The guitar was auctioned off, raising $117,500 for the Guardians of Heroes Foundation, helping wounded U.S. soldiers.
Montana and his wife Danielle are the parents of four children and currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
