I have not got to meet every one of these guys. However Wyatt Nations (AKA my future husband) speaks very highly of them. I have listened to their music and watched them on Facebook for over a year. They are one amazing group of guys. I am looking forward to the day we do an event together.
Wyatt has recorded two of their songs that Eugene Montgomery wrote.
Too Busy and WWJD!
I am grateful for their influence on Wyatt and his music and he is as well.
- BIO FROM THE BAGGY BOTTOM BOYS
The Baggy Bottom Boys are a Country Gospel Music Ministry, dedicated in serving our Lord Jesus Christ and to glorify His Name with the talents He has given us. We lift Him up and praise His Name whenever and wherever He leads us.We Believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven,We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He came into the world to die for us ,and rose from the dead on the third day, so that we can have eternal life with Him.We believe that you must have a personal relationship with Him. You must confess to Him that you are a sinner and ask Him to forgive your sin and ask Him to come into your heart and save you. Believers baptism follows salvation which symbolizes His death ,burial, and ressurection. Our faith and hope is in Jesus Christ.
Dedicated to spreading God’s word through their music has become more rewarding than they could have ever imagined. The groups founder and leader Eugene Montgomery, started with a passion for music from a legacy that was left by his dad. They have been inspired by their christian families and friends, loved by all their audiences, and blessed to have met so many wonderful people with a love for Jesus Christ. Each one of them have a deep love for Country Gospel Music. And, through the message of their songs, it is their desire for people to come to know Christ, and to have a close relationship with Him. “We can relate the songs to our lives and enjoy singing them, and seeing others relate too”. “Just being able to minister thru song is such a great and rewarding experience”. God continues to use them in ways they never thought possible. He has opened many doors and they have had the opportunity to go to many different kinds of churches and fellowship with such loving christian people. “People respond to Country Gospel Music because the songs are about things in life that most people understand”. Wherever God leads them is where they go and enjoy it while having fun.They are all truly good friends and they all have the same goal: To see Christ Glorifyed through their personal testimonies and talents to encourage others to live for Jesus Christ.
BIO TAKEN FROM http://www.baggybottomboys.com/about-us
How long have you been writing and singing Country Gospel Music?
I started writing and singing country gospel music in 2006 .
Do you write all of your music?
I have written the words and music to 21 songs, and another 12 songs we have recorded I have written the music to. These were songs that friends of mine had given me words to . Some were poems others were written to be a song but had no music. They just felt like we could do something with them and we did. The words had a great message in them and I was thrilled to get them. I come up with a melody and arrange the words, Steve comes up with a bass line and Jerry comes up with the lead break. The friends that shared their songs with me included David Hancock, Bob Montgomery, Janice Hutto, Bill Donnely, Chris Hubbard, Dorman Pullen, J.D. Walters, and my wife Sandra Montgomery. We also sing a lot of older hymns that everyone loves.
Where did the name Baggy Bottom Boys come from?
We were asked to sing 4 songs at our church to kick off a Gospel Fest where several groups and indivduals would be singing. So we thought it would be funny if we dressed up in overalls and 3 of us lived in Hideaway Bay, so we thought it would be funny to be called ” The Hideaway Bay Baggy Bottom Boys”. We later dropped the Hideaway Bay part because it was too much of a tongue twister LOL. As it turned out about 300 people showed up from several churches, and I began getting calls to come sing at their church. They are still calling 10 years later. God took our funny little joke and began to use it for His glory. We share our testimonies about how we came to know Jesus Christ as our Savior and we sing about it in our songs and I believe that is why God has blessed our ministry.
Who are the Baggy Bottom Boys?
The Baggy Bottom Boys consist of Paul Bolton singing bass, Glenn Wylie singing tenor, Steve Doody playing bass guitar, Jerry Robinson playing lead guitar, and myself, Eugene Montgomery playing rhythm guitar and singing lead.
How long have y’all been together as a group?
We 5 have been together since 2008 and we all believe that the Lord put us together. Each of us has a different personality but we all have the same calling.
Do you sing on your own or always with the group?
I always sing with the Baggy Bottom Boys. Only on a few occasions have I sang without them. We are booked pretty much every week of the year. We already have 46 bookings for 2016 , so that keeps us pretty busy . Also we are working on a new CD. Occasionally we get a week or two off and try to enjoy that time.
What is a funny story you can share with us about being on the road or on stage?
One Sunday morning I woke up with the police knocking on my door. I jumped up and went to the door, The officer was checking to see if I was alright. I said yes sir I’m fine, He said well there’s about 500 people at the Cowboy Church worried about you. I looked at the clock and the first service was just starting ! I made it for the second service ! It was funny afterward but boy it wasn’t funny at the time . The Boys got a friend of ours at the church to sing with them for the first service, then when I got there they all laughed and made a big announcement that I was alive and well .
Then one Sunday I was about to sing God on the Mountain and I was telling how God is always there for us whether we are up on the mountain or down in the valley, and about that time I tripped over a step on the stage and fell down, I hopped up and said well I was down , now I’m up !
What is the most difficult situations you face out there on the roads?
The most difficult situations we face on the roads are of course the traffic these days and trying to find the churches we are going to. Other difficult situations are getting the sound set in places with terrible acoustics, such as a gym !
If you could share three tips with other artist that would encourage them to keep pushing forward what would those be?
(a) If it is in God’s plan for you to minister through your music, He will make it happen , Not You. (b) sing songs that speak to your heart, that have a message that you want to share with others. (c) I do not believe that I am a good singer, but I do the best that I can, and that is all God wants us to do. The rest is up to the Lord. Share the gospel then look and listen to see what the Lord is doing with it and you will be surprised . He can take nothing and make something out of it.
Thank you Eugene Montgomery for this interview and letting us be a part of your ministry.
