    John Michael Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers.

    Songs like “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That” still resonate across the landscape—pop icon and country newcomer Jessica Simpson cited “I Love The Way You Love Me” as an influence in a recent interview. It is apparent in the 2004 hit “Letters From Home,” one of the most moving tributes to the connection between soldiers and their families ever recorded, and in “The Little Girl,” a tale of redemption that plumbs both the harrowing and the uplifting. It is apparent even in the pure fun that has always found its way into John Michael’s repertoire—songs like “Be My Baby Tonight” and “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident),” where John Michael’s vocal earnestness takes musical whimsy to another level.

    The hits followed steadily, with songs like “Rope The Moon,” “If You’ve Got Love,” “No Man’s Land,” “Cowboy Love,” “As Long As I Live,” “Friends” and “How Was I To Know” establishing him as one of the elite acts of the era. He received the CMA Horizon award and was named the ACM’s Top New Vocalist, setting off a long series of awards that included the CMA’s Single and Song of the Year, Billboard’s Top Country Artist, and a Grammy nomination.

    LYRICS:
    Well I went down to the Grundy County Auction
    Where I saw something I just had to have
    My mind told me I should proceed with caution
    But my heart said go ahead and make a bid on that

    And I said, "Hey pretty lady! Won't you gimme a sign?
    I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine
    I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
    Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine
    Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind
    I'm goin' once, goin' twice
    I'm sold to the lady in the second row
    She's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten I know
    She's got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
    And I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!

    Well, the auctioneer was goin' 'bout a mile a minute
    He was taking bids and callin' them out loud
    And I guess I was really gettin' in it
    'Cause I just shouted out above the crowd!

    And I said, "Hey pretty lady! Won't you gimme a sign?
    I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine
    I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
    Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine
    Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind
    I'm goin' once, goin' twice
    I'm sold to the lady in the long black dress
    Well she won my heart, it was no contest
    With her ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
    Well I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!

    Yeah, we found love on the auction block and I hauled her heart away
    Now we still love to laugh about, the way we met that day!

    When I said "Hey pretty lady! Won't you gimme a sign?
    I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine
    I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
    Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine
    Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind
    I'm goin' once, goin' twice
    I'm sold to the lady in the second row
    She's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten I know
    She's got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
    And I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!
