with Hannah Ellis
American Country music duo Montgomery Gentry is composed of vocalists Eddie Montgomery (born Sept. 30, 1963, in Danville, KY.) and Troy Gentry (born April 5, 1967, in Lexington, KY, died September 8, 2017 in a helicopter crash.). Their first group, Early Tymz, was a Kentucky band led by Montgomery's brother John Michael Montgomery. Their debut album, "Tattoos & Scars", was released in 1999 and made the country Top Ten. They have since released numerous singles and albums and were named the CMA's Duo of the Year in 2000.

Montgomery Gentry: Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry first joined forces in the '90s along with Eddie's brother, John Michael, before each pursued solo deals. John Michael Montgomery hit it big with his own solo career, while Eddie's and Troy's careers hit a road-bump. After winning a Jim Bean talent contest, Gentry scored the opening slot on tours for Patty Loveless and Tracy Byrd, but was still unable to secure a solo deal. Montgomery and Gentry re-teamed and their chemistry was noticed by Columbia Records who signed the duo to a deal in 1999. They released their debut album, Tattoos & Scars, in 1999 and scored a top forty hit with "Hillbilly Shoes". Montgomery Gentry hit the road and toured to promote their debut. The following year, they were awarded the Vocal Duo of the Year trophy by the Country Music Association and hit the studio to record a follow-up.

Their sophomore set, Carrying On, was released in 2001 and featured their first top ten entry - "She Couldn't Change Me". They followed up with their mainstream breakthrough album, My Town, which featured three top five country singles including "My Town" and "Hell Yeah" and earned them a Platinum plaque. In 2004, the duo released You Do Your Thing, which scored them two #1 singles, "If You Ever Stop Loving Me" and "Something to Be Proud Of". Montgomery Gentry tour dates were booked throughout the year to support their burgeoning careers. The prolific duo released Some People Change in 2007 and Back When I Knew It All in 2008 earning them an additional three #1 singles. Montgomery Gentry tour dates were booked on the Sun City Carnival Tour with Kenny Chesney throughout 2009.

The duo experienced setbacks with their next album, when their full-length record, Freedom, was scrapped by their label in favor of an EP of new songs and previous hits, Hits and More: Life Beside a Gravel Road. However, the EP was shelved the day before its release after Montgomery Gentry walked out on their label, Columbia Records, citing creative differences. Two years later, they signed with Colt Ford's label, Average Joes Entertainment, and released Rebels on the Run. The album featured the hit single "Where I Come From", and the album was praised by critics as a return to the band's original style.

Montgomery Gentry left Average Joes for Blaster Records, which resulted in the year-long delay of their record Folks Like Us. The musicians returned to Average Joes in 2016 and began working on a new and improved album for 2017. The album was completed shortly before Troy Gentry tragically died in a helicopter crash before a show in Medford, New Jersey. After months of mourning, Eddie Montgomery announced that he would continue to perform as a solo artist under the Montgomery Gentry moniker, and that his and Getry's final album together would released in 2018 under the title Here's to You.
