Walker Montgomery was exposed to the music business from an early age, and his dad put a Baby Taylor in his hands by the time he was five years old and taught him the basics, but was wise enough to let his son find his own way musically, offering plenty of support but also healthy space to create his own path. It’s no surprise that along with his dad, Walker cites his two main musical influences as Randy Travis and Luke Bryan. Evident in his writing as well as his vocals, his love for the old and the new combined demonstrates a deep, abiding appreciation for both country’s rich heritage as well as its contemporary sounds and vibe.

T.G. - as those closest to him call him - is the oldest grandchild of Johnny Cash. Predominately raised on the road, he often dreamed of a life as a successful career musician. When he was young, his grandfather would call him onstage, to sing “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
At 21, he was in the studio trying out his voice. Johnny would say, “Son, you sound a lot like I did when I was younger; work on those vocals.” Along with his voice that sounds so much like his grandfather’s, he brings a wealth of stories from his memories of his childhood and of growing up a member of such an iconic family.
From the first note he sings, George Shingleton doesn’t just ask for your attention, he commands it. You sit up and lean in. Then you’re blown away by his power. His body is an amplifier ushering rich, stirring tones from deep within his soul sending them straight to yours.
Shingleton’s energy creates a capsule-like environment where he gets lost in the music and takes you with him. It’s the kind of experience musicians have tried to hotwire for centuries, the very secret of which Shingleton embodies - that it can’t actually be engineered, that it is the product of one’s own passion and destiny.
