Jamey Johnson - July 21st


When  the  two  Kentucky  boys—Eddie,  is  from  Lancaster  and  Troy  is  from  Lexington  first  burst  onto  the  national  scene  in  1999  with  the  defiant  “Hillbilly  Shoes”  notice  was  served—country  music  had  never  seen  a  hard  driving  duo  like  this.
 Despite  the  millions  of  albums  sold,  the  sold  out  shows  and  the  scores  of  awards,  Montgomery  Gentry  remains  in  touch  with  its  working  class roots.  “We  are  blue  collar  workers  and  we  lived  the  songs  That  we  sing,”  says  Troy.  “Because  of  that,  our  fans  are  able  to  make  the  connection  and  when  they  hear  our  songs,  they  know  we  are  singing  with  passion  and  we  know  what  we  are  talking  about.”  “People  are  going  to  be  able  to  touch  on  each  one  of  our  songs  and  say.  ‘Yeah  man,  that  song  is  a  little  bit  about  me,’  or  ‘I  know  a  person  that  lives  next  door  to  me  that’s  been  through  what  you  just  got  done  singing  about,’”  Troy  continues.  “People  can  associate  themselves  with  ours  songs.”  “With  us  is  what  you  see  is  what  you  get,”  Eddie  says  of  the  duo’s  down-­‐ to‐earth  demeanor.  “We  don’t  act  like  we  don’t  drink  or  cuss.  We  have  faults  like  everybody  else  and  that’s  who  we  are.”    Who  they  are  is  a  duo  with  fourteen  Top  10  singles,  including  five  No.  1s,  Something  To  Be  Proud  Of,”  “If  You  Ever  Stop  Loving  Me,”  Lucky  Man,”  “Back  When  I  Knew  It  All”  and  “Roll  With  Me.”  


But  awards  and  accolades  aside,  it’s  Eddie  and  Troy’s  induction  into  the  venerable  Grand  Ole  Opry  in  2009  that  means  the  most  to  them.  “Unlike  other  awards,  becoming  members  of  the  Grand  Ole  Opry  is  something  people  can’t  take  away  from  you,”  Troy  says.  “Other  awards  come  an  go,  but  once  you  become  a  member  of  The  Opry,  you  are  a  member  for  life—that’s  something  that  Eddie  and  I  are  very  proud  to  be  a  part  of.”

  There’s  no  doubt  that  they’re  hard‐running  honky  tonkers,  but  Eddie  and  Troy  are  also  empathetic  citizens  of  the  world.  Acknowledged  by the  Academy  of  Country  Music  as  the  2010  winners  of  its  Humanitarian  Award,  they  devote  their  time  and  energy  into  making  the  needs  of  others  a  priority.  They  are  active  participants  in  many  charitable  organizations,  including  the  U.S.  military  and  numerous  charitable organizations  such  as  the  TJ  Martell  Foundation,  Camp  Horsin'  Around and  the  Make‐A‐Wish  Foundation  of  Middle  Tennessee  among  numerous  others.

Make  no  mistake  about  it:  Montgomery  Gentry  has  secured  a  place  in  musical  history  with  unique  blend  of  country,  southern  rock  and  Everly Brothers-­‐like  harmonies  combined  with  relatable  lyrics.  This  is  especially  evident  with  their  latest  radio  release,  “Headlights”,  from  the  highly  anticipated  album  slated  to  be  released  in  early  2015.

 With  infectious  lyrics  and  an  anthem  feel,  this  latest  offering  from  the  duo  will  have  fans  partying  on  tailgates  well  into  the  future.  “We  grew  up  on  Charlie  Daniels,  Waylon  Jennings,  Willie  Nelson,  Lynyrd  Skynyrd  and  Merle  Haggard,”  Eddie  says  with  conviction.


 “That’s  who  we  are.  We  cut  our  teeth  in  the  honky  tonks  and  no  matter  what  you  try  to  do,  we  have  to  be  us  or  it  just  doesn't sound right.
