Montgomery Gentry

montgomery-gentry

Montgomery Gentry have risen to prominence in country music through a combination of hit records and energetic live performances. Kentucky natives Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry played together in some early bands, and formed a duo together called Deuce, which changed its name to Montgomery Gentry and signed with Columbia Records in Nashville in 1999. Their 1999 debut album, ‘Tattoos & Scars,’ yielded five singles, including a Top 5 in “Lonely and Gone.” The duo went on to score a slew of hit singles in the early 2000s, mingling country and rock influences, including “My Town,” “Speed,” “Gone” and “Some People Change.” They moved over to Average Joes Entertainment for their 2011 album ‘Rebels on the Run,’ which scored another hit with “Where I Come From,” and signed a new deal with Blaster Records to release 2015’s ‘Folks Like Us.’ The duo have won ACM and CMA Awards and have been inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
