Ricky Montgomery has unveiled a single inspired by his childhood dog, and confirmed a new tour

He'll hit the road in April.

Ricky Montgomery has unveiled his latest single, ‘It’s Ok To Cry’.

Out now via Warner Records, the track sees the alt-pop artist reckon with heartbreak and grief, and arrives ahead of his upcoming April tour.

Ricky says: “I wrote ‘It’s Ok to Cry’ in late 2020 for my childhood dog Lily, who passed away in the middle of lockdown. I wasn’t able to be there, and I took that really hard. I finished most of the lyrics the day that it happened, but it still took me three years to find a version that felt good enough to honour her memory. I think we finally found that version.”
