About Montgomery Gentry
Hailing from Kentucky, both Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery would be big names in their
local country scenes. Eddie would start performing at the young age of 13 as a drummer in his family band, eventually forming
Early Tymz with future collaborator Troy Gentry as well as his brother, John Michael. After some trying times, the band would
dissolve with each of the artists pursuing individual endeavors.
Gentry would be spotted in a 1994 talent contest, giving
him the opportunity to tour the country with Patty Loveless and Tracy Byrd. Missing the creativity of his brother in instruments
Troy Gentry, the two would reunite as a duo, playing the local club scene. They would settle on the name Montgomery and by
1999 would receive their first major record deal with Columbia Records.
The band's debut into the mainstream would be
a success, leading to radio play and commercial success. The duo would receive accolades from numerous outlets after their
second release, including Vocal Duo of the Year at the CMA awards, Top New Vocal Duo from the Academy of Country Music, and
Favorite New Artist award from the AMAs. They would begin to tour with the biggest names in country, including Keith Urban
and Toby Keith. The band would branch out and collaborate with various artists in the greater country genre, including Tracy
Byrd's "The Truth About Men", which would be a huge hit in the country scene.
Gentry would hit the ground running when they released Tattoos & Scars, their debut album that would receive thumbs up
reviews from critics and go platinum within two years. The pre-album release single "Hillbilly Shoes" would peak at #13 on
the country singles Billboard and receive so much attention the band would move the release of their album up a full month.
Their second single "Lonely and Gone" would perform even better than "Hillbilly Shoes", and their third single "Daddy Won't
Sell the Farm" would win writer Steve Fox a SOCAN award for Song of the Year.
Their followup Carrying On would be released
with high expectations, which would be met with their mega hits "She Couldn't Change Me" and and "Cold One Comin' On". Both
would top charts, with the track "Didn't I" (featured in the film We Were Soldiers) also receiving acclaim. 500,000 albums
sold later, the band would chalk up a gold certification for their sophomore album.
These country rolling stones would
not lose momentum over the next decade, releasing hit after hit. 2002 would see My Town drop, with a fresh new producer that
would sport three hit singles: "Speed", "Hell Yeah", and "My Town". After a two year gap their fourth full length You Do Your
Thing would hit shelves, this time with the tracks "Something to Be Proud Of", "Gone", and "If You Ever Stop Loving Me" rocking
the country airwaves for months. The duo would continue to receive critical acclaim from all walks of the music industry,
and were on an unstoppable roll. The band's next five albums would all be acclaimed hits, included amongst them the memorable
hits "Where I Come From", "While You're Still Young", and the collaboration "Roll with Me".
had a brief battle with prostate cancer. He would be declared cancer free in later 2010.
The duo have collaborated with
dozens of artists, amongst them members of Five for Fighting and Charlie Daniels.
Montgomery's earliest forays into
band life were when he was 13 and playing the drums for his parents' band.
