Each Friday at 9:30am, KICK-FM will feature an artist on the rise during the Breakthrough Artist of the Week, brought to you by Glass One Quincy, home of the hassle free guarantee.

Ryan Montgomery may be young, but he's highly skilled, and highly focused. To the point that he drove back and forth between Nashville and Florida Atlantic University, where he holds a 4.0 GPA and has made the Dean's List, to cut his self-titled debut EP, which was released at the end of June. During his short time as a singer, songwriter and performer, Montgomery has already shared the stage with Dustin Lynch, Craig Campbell, and Chase Bryant, and is looking forward to his own club tour. For more about Ryan Montgomery, visit his website. His debut EP, featuring the single 'Drop A Tailgate,' is available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
