Montgomery Gentry

Gallo Center for the Arts

When these two Kentucky boys—Eddie Montgomery is from Lancaster and Troy Gentry is from Lexington—first burst onto the national scene in 1999 with the defiant “Hillbilly Shoes,” notice was served. Country music had never seen a hard-driving duo like this. Since then Montgomery Gentry has scored fourteen Top 10 singles, including five #1 hits: “Something To Be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.” While they describe themselves as Average Joes, make no mistake. This is a superstar duo, as their adoring fans and admiring country music peers will tell you.
