    Event Description:
    From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in the history of country music -- as much for their outlaw-meets-gentleman sensibilities, their yin and yang personalities and their intensely energetic live performances give their brand of country an edge. This chemistry has been reacting for more than 15 years. After nearly a decade and a half, Montgomery Gentry continues to draw door-busting crowds into their concerts and release albums that stay true to the Kentucky country music movement they helped define. They have embraced the ever-changing environment of country music while remaining true to their signature sound. However, that's what Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry have always done, and that practice has positioned them as trailblazers for contemporary country. A modest Troy scoffs at the notion, but says, “We're going to continue to do the same music that we always have, and if that puts us in that leadership role, then so be it. I definitely want to be the one on the front end and not trying to copy something else that's already been done.” Since breaking into the format in 1999, Montgomery Gentry has been a representative of the workingman, releasing blue-collar anthems for what Eddie calls, “the good, the bad, the ugly, and the party on the weekend.” But the songs are about more than just factory workers who like to blow-off a little steam. They dig deeper. They’re about passion: for doing a good job, for working hard and playing harder, for being an honorable person, for loving your family, and your life. *Cash bar. Patrons under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
