“I’m just thrilled that we are doing this again,” states Gentry’s widow Angie. “We started the The Troy Gentry Foundation to keep the spirit of Troy’s generous heart alive and honor his memory and dedication to helping others. He was very passionate about our military and their families, about those in need to provide for their children, cancer research and the continuation of music education.”

The foundation will provide financial support to organizations that aid in cancer research, assist military families in need and help provide music education to future generations.

Troy Gentry, one-half of the superstar country duo, Montgomery Gentry, passed away tragically in 2017 following a freak helicopter accident before a show. The duo has a long history of giving back to those in need by supporting such organizations as T.J. Martell, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and others. Montgomery Gentry were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry 2009.
