Montgomery Gentry, one of country music’s most storied duos, has been hard at work in the studio with producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett), putting the finishing touches on their first new record in over three years. FOLKS LIKE US, the new album from Montgomery Gentry, will release June 9 on Blaster Records through RED Distribution.
“Listening back through our older albums, I can definitely hear some growth and maturity in the new music, but Folks Like Us still feels like a Montgomery Gentry record,” shares Troy Gentry. “There are probably a few more introspective moments on the album, and front to back, this might just be our strongest record yet.”
“We’re still who we are at the roots,” says Eddie Montgomery. “I reckon, you let it branch out a little bit and you learn. You live and learn, so that’s what we’ve tried to do with this new record.”
