On this date in country music history, 1994, John Michael Montgomery reached #1 with "Be My Baby Tonight." It's our Classic Country Song of the Day.

It was the third single off the album, Kickin' It Up. The video was filmed at Davis–Monthan Air Force Base.

Another huge song for Montgomery was, "I Swear" from Inhale Exhale. JJM is still touring and recording - releasing his latest album in 2008, Time Flies - landing a #28 song, "Mad Cow Disease." He has $20 million in the bank
