C’Ya On The Flipside Benefit Concert will honor the late Troy Gentry
The Troy Gentry Foundation has announced its first C’Ya On The Flipside Benefit Concert featuring a star-studded lineup of performers. The event will be held January 9, 2019 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville where the world of country music comes together to support the continuance of Gentry’s personal beliefs: Love God, Love others.
Performers include Jimmie Allen, Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice, Colt Ford, Halfway to Hazard, Chris Janson, Tracy Lawrence, Dustin Lynch, Eddie Montgomery, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, Ray Scott, Jeffrey Steele, Neil Thrasher and Darryl Worley. Blake Shelton and SiriusXM The Highway’s Storme Warren will co-host the event.
Funds raised will be used to support the goals of the foundation; providing financial support to organizations that aid in cancer research, assist military families and families in need, and help provide music education to future generations.
The concert will benefit The Troy Gentry Foundation, the Opry Trust Fund, T. J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, The Journey Home project and scholarships and instruments for music education in Kentucky schools. The all-star show will be presented by Grogan Jewelers by Lon.
Ticket prices are $40, $46.50, $75 and $100. They are available via thetroygentryfoundation.org, ticketmaster.com and opry.com. There is a limit of eight tickets per order.
Gentry, one half of Montgomery Gentry, died last September following a helicopter crash in Medford, New Jersey, hours before the duo were to perform with their band. He was 50 years old and leaves behind a wife and two kids.
