John Michael Montgomery’s 17-Year-Old Son Performs His Dad’s 1992 Song ‘Life’s A Dance’


Son of famed country music star, Walker Montgomery covers his father’s “Life’s a Dance.” The 17-year-old sounds identical to his father, John Michael Montgomery, in his rendition of the top 5 hit both vocally as well as musically.

In a session with “Kyle’s Chaise Lounge,” the young artist performed the beginning portion of the song while strumming the melody on his acoustic guitar. His voice is so strikingly similar to his fathers that there’s no denying there is musical talent in his blood.

“Life’s a Dance” was featured as the title track off John’s debut studio album released in 1992. The song was well received and peaked at No.4 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and No.3 on the Canadian country chart.

“Life’s a Dance” sung by John’s son gives off an air of nostalgia as the song details the emotion felt by a 14-year-old boy too afraid to ask out the girl in his homeroom class. The opportunity at love vanishes when the girl moves away and the narrator goes on to compare life to “a dance” and “you learn as you go.”
