Montgomery Gentry Raises Awareness for Armed Services YMCA

Montgomery Gentry will play at the Greeley Stampede Tuesday night.

The duo’s new collection, the aptly titled “Rebels On The Run,” brings Montgomery Gentry fans back to the beginning, but with a fresh attitude. Montgomery Gentry’s seventh studio album effort already with 2 hit singles will likely be remembered as their best album thus far in their decade-plus history.

Whether it’s headlining tours, scoring a Grammy nomination, winning Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Awards, garnering critical acclaim or simply earning the admiration of their millions of fans, Eddie and Troy have met the criteria reserved for but a few in country music history.

Who they are is a duo with fourteen Top 10 singles, including five No. 1s, “Something To Be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.”

There’s no doubt that these Grand Ole Opry members are hard-running honky tonkers, but Eddie and Troy are also empathetic citizens of the world. Acknowledged by the Academy of Country Music as the 2010 winners of its Humanitarian Award, they devote their time and energy into making the needs of others a priority.

They are active participants in many charitable organizations, including the U.S. military and numerous charitable organizations such as the TJ Martell Foundation, Camp Horsin’ Around and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee, among numerous others.

Continuing their humanitarian efforts, beginning July 5, 2012, “Rebels On The Run” will be sold at all Buffet’s Inc. restaurants for $8.99 with proceeds going to the Armed Services YMCA.  “We’re proud to be part of the Armed Services YMCA effort to support our young men and women in uniform and their families,” states Eddie and Troy.

Make no mistake about it: with “Rebels On The Run,” Montgomery Gentry has secured a place in musical history with a unique blend of country, southern rock and Everly Brothers-like harmonies combined with relatable lyrics. Now signed with powerhouse independent label Average Joes Entertainment, Montgomery Gentry has found the freedom the duo needs to move to the next level of their career. Average Joes, yes, but Montgomery Gentry is a superstar duo nonetheless.
