"Meet Me in Montana" is a song written by Paul Davis, and recorded by American country music artists Dan Seals and Marie Osmond. It was released in July 1985 as the lead-off single from Seals' album Won't Be Blue Anymore, and the second single from Osmond's 1985 album There's No Stopping Your Heart.

"Meet Me in Montana" reached No. 1 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart for one week in October 1985. The single was the first chart-topping hit for Seals, and Osmond's second No. 1 hit, her first to peak at the top of the chart since 1973's Paper Roses.

Content[edit]

The song refers to two lovers who go their separate ways to pursue dreams; him, to be a country music star, and her to be a Hollywood actress. When both of them experience misery and failure, they decide that the best hope for their future is with each other, in Montana.


Awards and reception[edit]

"Meet Me in Montana" earned Seals and Osmond the Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year award in 1986.
