Exactly two months after the tragic death of Troy Gentry, Eddie Montgomery has announced that the album Montgomery Gentry recorded before his passing will be released next year.
Here’s To You, due out on Feb. 2, will feature twelve songs from the country duo. The album was recorded before Gentry died in a helicopter accident on the way to a concert on Sept. 8. He was 50 years old.
Montgomery shared the news with an emotional message to fans via the band’s Twitter account this morning (Nov. 8).
Hey Guys – I know it's been a while but it has been a very emotional time, but you will be hearing from soon. Our new music is coming out and I hope you'll give it a listen. Me and T-Roy were very proud of this new cd. -Eddie https://t.co/ZhAXjT18Fc pic.twitter.com/GBnTkWIrz5
