Life's a Dance

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: John Michael Montgomery; Producer (group): Atlantic

Or, Attack of the Garth Babies. Newcomer John Michael Montgomery has a promising vocal style — his lower register invokes just enough George Jones and Merle Haggard to make him sound legit — but he’s clearly being groomed by handlers to fit in with the Brooksian hat squad. How else to explain the low-placed ”Beer and Bones,” or Life’s a Dance’s title cut, a fairly blatant rip-off of ”The Dance.” And that one’s a hit, yet. Oy. D
