"Angel in My Eyes" is a song written by Tony Mullins and Blair Daly, and recorded by American country music artist John Michael Montgomery. It was released in September 1997 as the first new single from his Greatest Hits package. It peaked at number 4 in the United States, and number 6 in Canada.

Critical reception[edit]

Rick Anderson of Allmusic, in a review of a later Montgomery compilation, called the song "unusually complex and soulful".[1] Walter Allread of Country Standard Time was mixed in his review of the Greatest Hits package, saying that Montgomery "aims at touchy-feely lovers, new parents[…] and the thousands who buy anything alluding to winged ones. Montgomery's overly forceful delivery (spitting out "sometimes we fight") reflects a tendency toward inch-deep interpretation".[2]
