Walker Montgomery is stripping down his latest single “Saving For A Rainy Night” in an acoustic performance video premiering on Sounds Like Nashville today, May 13th. The video features Montgomery alone with his guitar as he sings about a romantic, rainy evening.
“I just wanna hold you all night long / I just wanna turn out all the lights and turn you on / Baby you don’t even know how bad / I’ve been craving your body been waiting / I’m trying to be patient / I got all this love that I’ve been saving, saving for a rainy night / Saving for a night like tonight,” he sings in the chorus.
While the original version of the song features a more complex production complete with drums and electric guitar, the acoustic version allows one to focus in on the lyrics. And with a global pandemic underway and many people in uncertain times, Montgomery says he believes the song tells a story that people need to hear.
“With everything going on in the world right now, a lot of people are missing that special someone,” he says. “’Saving For A Rainy Night’ is one of those songs that reminds us of the memories that are yet to come. I wanted to release the acoustic video to focus on the vulnerable, but hopeful message, which is all something we could use a little bit more of these days.”

As the son of country singer John Michael Montgomery and the nephew of Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery, music runs in Walker Montgomery’s blood. Released on April 14th, “Saving For A Rainy Night” followed the singer’s debut single, “Like My Daddy Done It,” an uptempo ode to following in his father’s footsteps.
