Montgomery Gentry's forthcoming album, Folks Like Us, drops on June 9, so the duo stopped by Taste of Country Nights to chat about their album and its producer.

"We’ve been out touring and having a blast," Eddie Montgomery tells ToCN host Sam Alex, adding that the title track of the album has been at radio for about a month.

Of course, it hasn't been all fun on the road for this massive duo — they've been hard at work alongside Folks Like Us producer Michael Knox, who has also produced albums for talents like Jason Aldean.

“He’s great. He actually did our last record with us so we’ve had the pleasure of working with him before,” Troy Gentry explains. "He’s great. He 'gets' Montgomery Gentry. He knows what we like to sing about. He’s great and his session guys that he gets for us are phenomenal. [They are] a great band that come in, digs our stuff, knows what we’re looking for and makes it real easy and a lot of fun to go to work.”

To tease the record, Montgomery Gentry recently let ToC readers get an exclusive preview of songs like "We Were Here" and "Back on a Dirt Road."

Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
