Fifteen years ago Montgomery Gentry’s debut album, Tattoos & Scars, went platinum and produced the hits “Hillbilly Shoes” and “Lonely and Gone.” The duo (Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry) have five #1’s – “If You Ever Stop Loving Me“, “Something To Be Proud Of“, “Lucky Man“,”Back When I Knew It All“, and “Roll With Me.” In 2009, they were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
The Kentucky natives’ new single, “Headlights“, continues to showcase their Southern rock/country roots. “Follow those headlights … down to the riverside … through the red dust in the tire ruts … all night”. The song’s lyrics tell the stories that they have lived.“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.” (Troy)
Signed earlier this year to Blaster Records (Chuck Wicks, Hank Williams Jr., Aaron Lewis), the duo is currently working with producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Thomas Rhett, ABC TV’s Nashville) on a new album. The single will be going for adds August 18.
