It has been less than a month since Troy Gentry tragically died in a helicopter accident. Now, his former bandmate Eddie Montgomery is ready to take the stage for the first time since his death.

Montgomery Gentry were booked to perform at Tootsie’s annual Birthday Bash in downtown Nashville on Oct. 10. In a Facebook post, the iconic venue revealed that Montgomery will take the stage once again in honor of Gentry. The duo had played the free event regularly in recent years, which draws thousands of country fans to Lower Broadway.

This year, the concert will be headlined by Cole Swindell and will also feature Trick Pony, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jon Langston, Halfway to Hazard, Darryl Worley, Tim Watson, Scott Collier, Anthony Orio, John Stone and Terri Clark. Additional surprise guests will also appear at the all-day concert event.
