LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)- After the sudden death of Troy Gentry, Eddie Montgomery says the show will go on. He is revealing who will sing in place of his longtime friend and bandmate.
In an interview with SiriusXM's, The Highway via CountryMusicNation.com, Montgomery says he's the one taking over Gentry's role.
“I was going to take over the role and sing all of it,” Eddie told radio host Storme Warren. “The guys in the band – we’ve been through everything. They’ve been with us 20-25 years, most of them. And so I said, ‘You know what I think what we’re gonna do is maybe I might kick it off.’ Our guys are great singers! And so we figured, we’ll do some of the parts here and there and let the band come up and showcase them, too.”
Troy Gentry died on September 8, 2017, in a helicopter accident. Before his death, the duo recorded an entire album titled "Here's To You". The tour called "Here's to Your Tour" kicks off Friday, January 19 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The tour ends in September.
