Editors’ Notes My Town was a quantum leap forward for Montgomery Gentry. The duo’s most consistent set of songs to date helped make their third album their best-selling work to date. The pair had perfected its recipe: blinding harmonies underscored by brooding Southern rock riffs and sold on singalong choruses. The bulk of My Town is readymade for the arena; starting with the title song, almost everything here would work at the Super Bowl halftime show. “My Town,” “Speed” and “Hell Yeah” are the album’s runaway hits, but “Scarecrow,” “For the Money,” and “Break My Heart” could have easily made it as singles. Montgomery Gentry may have succeeded in crafting the ultimate stadium set — it soars like country but explodes like rock music — but they are quick to retain ties to their roots. “Bad for Good,” “Why Do I Feel Like Running” and “Good Clean Fun” are strictly roadhouse, and prove that the while the duo now plays arenas their hearts will always be in the juke joint.
