Arkansas native Bonnie Montgomery is the recipient of the Ameripolitan Outlaw Female Award for 2016. The awards were held Tuesday night in Austin Texas at the Paramount Theatre. The Ameripolitan organization was founded by Dale Watson as a way to showcase grassroots country musicians.
Montgomery will be performing with her band in and around Austin throughout February and will also be showcased during South By Southwest in March. She will be in studio this spring cutting her second full length album, followed by studio time recording her debut with The Wildflowers, a female country trio group (with fellow Arkansas songwriters Mandy McBryde and Amy Garland) spearheaded by HBO/Lionsgate producer Chris Spencer.
Also a classically trained singer and composer, Montgomery will premiere her opera, Billy Blythe, about the childhood of Bill Clinton on April 8-10 with Opera Ithaca in Ithaca, New York.
