Montgomery appeared on PBS's Austin City Limits program on April 17, 1999.
Montgomery was on Guitar Player magazine's 2004 list of "The Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitarists". Montgomery has also won the "Best Acoustic Guitar Player" award at the SXSW Festival’s Austin Music Awards seven years in a row (1998–2004), the only artist to have ever done so.
On January 24, 2004, Alvarez Guitars unveiled the MMY1 Monte Montgomery Signature Guitar, a model based on Montgomery's 1987 Alvarez-Yairi DY62C Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Due to his intense playing style, Montgomery has broken the neck of his DY62C four times—the MMY1 has a reinforced neck to prevent such breakage.

In the early morning hours of March 30, 2009, Sofia Anna Mondini (January 7, 1988—March 30, 2009-), the 21-year old daughter of Monte Montgomery and ex-girlfriend Angela Mondini, was shot and killed by a friend allegedly "playing" with a loaded handgun. Justin Radwin pointed a .22-caliber pistol at Mondini, and after it discharged it struck her in the right chest area. Radwin was arrested on the charge of manslaughter and held on $50,000 bail. He was sentenced to twelve years in prison in 2010.
