John Michael started his career in 1992 with the Top 5 hit "Life's a Dance", followed immediately by the crossover ballad "I Love the Way You Love Me". In 1993, he scored an even bigger crossover with "I Swear", another ballad whose popularity was futher fueled by a cover by the RAndB group All-4-One. Montgomery spent the rest of the 90's charting Top 5 hits aplenty, although his momentum slowed some by 1999. He notched one more #1 in 2000 with "The Little Girl", based on an {{Urban Legend|s}} about a girl comforted by {{Jesus}} after witnessing her parents' death from DomesticAbuse. The country branch of his label, Creator/AtlanticRecords, closed not long after that song's release, so he moved to Creator/WarnerBrosRecords in 2001. He scored one more comeback hit in 2004 with the patriotic "Letters from Home", but once again faded from the limelight, outside a brief return in 2008 with the self-released ''Time Flies''.
