When Butte musician Tim Montana started growing a long beard, it inspired a song that he got to work on last week with ZZ Top guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons.
The Montana Standard reports Montana's manager got a rough demo of the song to Gibbons' people about a month ago. He liked it and re-routed his tour bus to Nashville to work with Montana last Thursday.
Montana, whose last name is Pasquinzo, says they wrote some more lyrics for "This Beard is Here to Party."
The rock songs boasts that the beard is "getting longer, it won't ever stop. My baby likes it like ZZ Top."
Montana says with the popularity of the TV show "Duck Dynasty" it's a good time for a beard song.
