Tony Montanez is a pop singer-songwriter from St. Petersburg, FL. Frontman of five years for rock band Big Moon Rocket, he's left behind the rocker lifestyle of booze and partying, and is out on a mission to create music with powerful messages. He hopes his positive twist on pop-rock inspires people to become their best selves. “I want to write songs about things that matter. Love, hope, faith, and change for the better.”

Song Lyrics:

When I was a baby boy
My father took me by the hand
He said son you’ve got to do what’s right
That’s the only way to be a man
I wish that I could say I listened
And I took those words to heart right away
But instead I buried them way down deep
I thought I’d save ‘em for a rainy day

Then the rain came pouring down
Had to turn around and say

I’m gonna love out loud and sing my praise
Thank the Lord for all my days
When it gets hard and you don’t know what to do
You’ve gotta love out loud let your heart shine through
Love out loud let your heart shine through

When I was a younger man
Wasn’t a thing that I did not understand
I could beat my head on the wall all day
Go to sleep wake up and do it again

But now a light is breaking through
And there’s only one thing I wanna do

I wanna love out loud and sing my praise
Thank the Lord for all my days
When it gets hard and you don’t know what to do
You’ve gotta love out loud let your heart shine through
Love out loud let your heart shine through

Now that I’m a grown man
I’m tryin’ to love every day more than the last
I’m tryin’ to live it up
I’m tryin’ to slow it down
Cause once you blink you know the future’s the past

And when the rain come pouring down
You can turn around and say

I wanna love out loud and sing my praise
Thank the Lord for all my days
When it gets hard and you don’t know what to do
You’ve gotta love out loud let your heart shine through
Love out loud let your heart shine through
Love out loud let your heart shine through
