Duo re-recorded 12 hits with some friends
Montgomery Gentry is celebrating 20 years with a fresh versions of their extensive catalog. Montgomery Gentry: 20 Years of Hits will be released on November 16th via Average Joes Entertainment featuring 12 of the duo’s signature songs re-recorded to commemorate Eddie Montgomery and the late Troy Gentry’s 20th anniversary.
The exclusive collection of classic Montgomery Gentry songs includes four No. 1 Billboard country chart-topping hits, and numerous Top 10 hits spanning the group’s first two decades. Recorded prior to Troy Gentry’s passing last September, some of country music’s biggest stars and hottest newcomers are featured on the new record including Jimmie Allen, Rodney Atkins, Colt Ford, Logan Mize, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Granger Smith.
“Twenty years of hits, I can’t believe it’s been 20 years of hits! Seems like just yesterday me and T-Roy were just getting started in this business being told we would be lucky to make it three to five years. I can’t thank everyone of our friends who sang on this album enough,” Montgomery says of the milestones. “It still blows my mind that in 20 years I’m still hitting the road and still out there. I know I’d probably never have been here and have 20 years of hits if it wasn’t for T-Roy. Me and T-Roy want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts, the Man upstairs and our American heroes.”
Introducing the offering with the No. 1 hit, “Back When I Knew It All (feat./Brad Paisley),” fans will travel back to hear the rowdy, boot-stomping, “Hell Yeah (feat./Jimmie Allen),” the Grammy-nominated, “Lucky Man (feat./Darius Rucker),” the gold-selling “Gone” (the most played country song by a duo in 2005), the No. 1 gold single, “Something To Be Proud Of (feat./Logan Mize,)” and the rural anthem, “My Town.” The band’s southern rock influences and patriotism continue to shine through on the remainder of the album with hits like “Hillbilly Shoes (feat./Granger Smith,)” “What Do You Think About That (feat./Colt Ford,)” and “Where I Come From.”
