This website is dedicated to the one and only Country Dick Montana.
On November 8, 1995, a true "one of a kind" legend was lost doing what he loved most - playing music in front of a live crowd. As one of the leaders of the Beat Farmers, a band known for its raucous live performances, he carved a path into the heart of every fan that ever witnessed their shows. While the incarnation of the Beat Farmers will never be duplicated again, we can still enjoy the legacy of music and fun that he and the band left behind. This site is dedicated to the everyday dirtbag. To all my fellow maggots, I salute you!
