John Michael Montgomery to play at SUU

By Kelsey Keener

CEDAR CITY–Country artist John Michael Montgomery will perform in concert at Southern Utah University Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Montgomery is well-known for his ability to relate to fans, his rich baritone voice and his believability. His success is largely credited not only to his hit records, plentiful awards and critical and fan honors, but also to a connection that goes deeper than talent and the ability to pick out hit songs. A unique feature of Montgomery’s music is also that he is said to sing with more heart than most artists across genres.

Montgomery is from Kentucky, and some of his artist achievements include: 16 million sold albums; 15 Number One Singles; four ACM awards; three CMA awards; American Songwriter Magazine Artist of the Year; four Billboards awards; two Grammy Nominations.

SUU Vice President for Alumni and Community Relations Mindy Bensons stated in a release that she thinks Montgomery’s concert will be enjoyed by many.

“We are excited to bring John Michael Montgomery to SUU and Cedar City for the first time,” she said. “His music is loved by many and I am confident that concert goers in southern Utah will enjoy his show.”

The concert is being brought to the community by SUU Alumni and Community Relations and Red Rock Media and will be held in SUU’s America First Event Center located at 152 South 800 West. Ticket prices vary from $20 to $45 and can be purchased at, via phone at 435.586.7872 or by visiting the Thunderbird Ticket Office.
