Montgomery Gentry – Country Music Duo
“Everybody gets backstage access when they join the MG Underground. Our fans know what we do onstage, now they can see what we do offstage. It's real, it's raw, and it's delivered straight to your computer and updated every week. Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture” - Eddie Montgomery
The American Country music duo hailing from Kentucky. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry used to perform with Eddie’s brother Michael as a trio. The group soon disbanded as Michael went to pursue a solo career. The remaining two decided to forge ahead as a duo. In 1994, the duo existence seemed threatened when Troy Gentry won the Jim Beam National Talent Contest and even went on tour opening for the likes of Patty Loveless and Tracy Byrd. However, he would return to his mate and sign a record deal with Columbia Records in 1999.
In early 1999 they released the debut single “Hillbilly Shoes” which peaked at No.13 on the Country Singles charts. The duo released their first album “Tattoos and Scars”. It also featured a Top 5 hit single “Lonely and Gone”. Three other charting singles later, the album was certified platinum. They even went on to win Country Vocal Duo of the year CMA awards in 2000.
They released their second album “Carrying On” in 2001, the lead single “She Couldn’t Change Me” which reached No.2 on the Country Music singles charts. They even had one of their songs featured for the original soundtrack for the Mel Gibson starrer We Were Soldiers.
The Platinum Duo
In 2002 they returned with their second platinum album “My Town” which featured the up temp hit “Hell Yeah” the single reached No.45 on the mainstream US Hot 100 Singles charts. The album was their highest charting album on the US Billboard, reaching No.26. This was the first sign of crossover success for the duo.
Montgomery Gentry followed up with the success of “My Town” by releasing “You Do Your Thing” which was their biggest chart success to date. It reached No.2 on the Country Music charts and No.10 on the mainstream US Billboard charts. The album would featured two No.1 Country hits “If You Ever Stop Loving Me” and “Something to be Proud Of”.
After a Greatest Hits package which was certified Gold in the US, the duo released “Some People Change”. The album reached No.23 on the mainstream charts and was certified Gold. Though not as successful as its predecessor, it featured another No.1 Country hit “Lucky Man”.
The 2008’s “Back When I Knew it All” spawned two more No.1 country single hits. The band has announced the release of a new album Freedom in 2010
