When John Michael Montgomery performed the National Anthem at Sunday's Golden Corral 500 race at Atlanta's Motor Spleedway, it was obvious something was wrong. In response to many emails from people who were confused or offended by his unsteady performance, John Michael posted an explanation on his web site. In a nutshell, he explains that what may have appeared to be an "alcohol related" problem was in fact a health issue. "I have been diagnosed with a condition knows as Acoustic Neuroma which can seriously affect my hearing and balance," he reveals. "The unsteadiness in me that you saw was my vertigo and lack of balance." The good news is John Michael's doctors are hopeful that the problem can be corrected. Let's hope so--he's one of the good guys.
