The Very Best of John Michael Montgomery is truly the crème de la crème, given that the tall Kentuckian has sold more than 15 million albums and filled a trophy case with multiplatinum awards. This 20-song set highlights the secret of Monty's success: good songs about loving hard and long, keeping the faith, dedication to loved ones, and celebrating joys. And be it a ballad or a barn burner, his sturdy baritone voice can dig in and bring passion or enthusiasm to the moment. All the essentials are here, including enduring ballads such as "I Swear" and "I Love the Way You Love Me"; the well-observed tale of a young girl's salvation from a violent home, "This Little Girl," which features Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski's vocal support; the fiddle-fired "Life's a Dance," a timeless bit of gently rocking, homespun philosophy; and the raucous, neo-honky-tonk workout "Be My Baby Tonight," replete with some Jerry Lee–style piano, soaring twin guitar solos, and frenetic fiddling. As a bonus, Montgomery cut two new songs for the album: "Cool," a father's perceptive look back at his youthful follies as he sees himself in his own son's eyes, and the deliberate, heartfelt pledge "One Day Less," which figures to rank with Montgomery's best love songs. Here's a collection of solid mainstream country by a fellow who puts his soul into every song, keeps his nose to the grindstone, and does good work each time out.
