Best-selling power duo Montgomery Gentry has electrified the country music world for over 15 years with their distinct blend of vocals and lyrics. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, friends from Kentucky with a shared passion for music and family, formed the band in 1999 and together set the country scene on fire with songs like “Hillbilly Shoes,” “Self Made Man,” a cover of “All Night Long,” “My Town,” “Hell Yeah,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Something To Be Proud Of,” “Lucky Man,” and “Better Me,” the lead single to their latest album.
They have won numerous ACM and CMA Awards; they shocked and thrilled the country world in late 2000 when they won the CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award, unseating Brooks & Dunn for the first time in 8 years. After thousands of performances and millions of albums sold to fans all over the world, the duo was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009, at the invitation of Charlie Daniels.
In September of 2017 Troy died in a helicopter crash in New Jersey, but Eddie announced that he would continue performing as a solo act in support of the new album and to honor his friend.
