From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in the history of country music—as much for their outlaw-meets-gentleman sensibilities, their yin and yang personalities and their intensely energetic live performances as that balance of voices that gives their brand of country an edge or their version of Southern rock a softer place to fall. This chemistry has been reacting for over 15 years. After nearly a decade and a half, Montgomery Gentry continues to draw door-busting crowds into their concerts and release albums that stay true to the Kentucky country music movement they helped define.
Originally conceived to mark Montgomery Gentry’s 20th anniversary,their dynamic new album Here’s To You now represents the triumphant start to a new legacy.
On September 8, 2017, Troy Gentry died in a helicopter crash at the age of 50. The new collection, which was recorded before his death,serves as a reminder of the iconic pair’s powerful presence and also points to fruitful future for Eddie Montgomery and the Montgomery Gentry brand. The album’s title, Here’s To You, is both a tribute to Troy and to the band’s rabid fans. “We don’t call them fans, we call them friends,” says Eddie. “They’re who got us our deal.” Despite Troy’s passing, the show will go on, according to Eddie. “We talked about it a long time ago. We both said, ‘If one of us goes down, we want the MG brand to keep going. I will continue to honor him and our friends.”
Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery celebrates the release of the award-winning duo’s ninth studio album,with a nationwide tour.
Here’s To You, is touted as “a country set rooted in Southern rock and all the visceral electricity and party attitudes that come with it,” by the Lexington Herald Examiner. Award-winning producers, Noah Gordan and Shannon Houchins, produced Here’s To You, which is the follow-up to their last offering in 2015.
Billboard noted, Here’s To You is simply a reflection of the values and lifestyle that the duo has always tried to exemplify – and they were able to do it their way.” While CMChatlive.com commented, “The album is filled with those southern, good ole boy themes that fans are used to hearing from the duo . . . Eddie is keeping the Montgomery Gentry name going strong.”
