Montgomery Gentry have no illusions about who they - or their fans - are. It’s split-rail basic music made for people working 60 hour weeks, needing that 10-20 hours of overtime to make ends meet. They’re people who work hard, love hard, party hard and if life is hard, refuse to buckle under. It’s that commitment to surviving that’s helped the Lexington, Kentucky-based duo sell well over a million copies of the Tattoos & Scars debut and 500,000 of their follow-up Carrying On.
My Town, Montgomery Gentry’s eagerly anticipated third release, reflects this expanding vision of their music. Certainly, My Town celebrates the small town, big dreams, ultimate truth reality as well as any song to come out of Nashville.
The duo’s hardcore, raw-edged country sound - as evidenced in full glory on their debut album Tattoos and Scars - is as unmistakable as their distinctive personalities, and they make no apologies about the fact that they like to shake things up. They wouldn’t really know any other way, after years of burning roadhouses down with their incendiary sound all over Lexington, KY. Known for their rowdy onstage antics, the two readily admit their show can get a little out of hand.
If Waylon, Willie and Haggard are the forefathers of country’s outlaw movement, Montgomery Gentry are surely it new sons, with their seamless harmonies, heartfelt lyrics and no-holds-barred attitude.
Eddie and Troy have come a long way from those early days. Their debut album scored several hits, including “Hillbilly Shoes” and “Daddy Won’t Sell The Farm.” Their singles “Lonely And Gone” and “She Couldn’t Change Me” scored further Top 10 singles.
And for now though, Montgomery Gentry are having one hell of a good time, and offering the same to their fans. They’re doing just what their gut is telling them to do and loving every minute of it.
