Before They Were Famous: Eddie Montgomery

Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry has his own steakhouse in Harrodsburg, KY, but thankfully, he leaves the steak cutting to the professionals. Before he and partner Troy Gentry hit it big with ‘Hillbilly Shoes’ in 1999, the singer worked at a butcher shop.

Montgomery recently returned to work cutting sirloins, filets and racks of ribs at a butcher shop and had some trouble keeping pace. You can watch his follies and successes on his recent episode of the GAC-TV show ‘Day Jobs.’ His customer service skills were top-notch, however. As women would approach the counter for a sandwich, he greeted them with a hearty “How ya doin’ darlin’” before slowly working on slicing their meat.
