Tim Montana grew up in Butte dreaming to someday make it big in the music business.  Eventually, he moved to Nashville, formed a group called “Tim Montana and His Shrednecks” and grew a beard to honor his heroes in ZZ Top.  After touring the country with his band, he finally met his idol, legendary ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons.

Last month, Gibbons joined the Shrednecks at a recording studio in Nashville to lay down riffs for their next album.  Together, they co-wrote a song about their beards that will be released later this year.  You can check out pictures from those studio sessions on Tim Montana’s official facebook page.
