Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry met as young musicians working the Kentucky bar circuit. By the time they joined forces in the late ‘90s, both men were music industry vets. Part of what binds the music on this playlist is the fact that they didn't get their first taste of fame until they were older. Montgomery Gentry's hooks hit the sweet spot but the songs are never too rushed or trendy. The duo plays with respect for the hardships and pleasures of everyday life. Every chorus will make you feel like you're singing along with two old friends from high school.
