Montgomery is "Alive and Well"

Friday, August 27, 2021 – Eddie Montgomery has released, "Alive and Well," his first song as a solo artist since the death of Troy Gentry, and first new music in more than two years.

"Alive and Well" was written by Montgomery, Ira Dean and Chris Wallin. The song was produced by Noah Gordon and Shannon Houchins.

"Alive and Well" is a snapshot of loss and survival inspired by Montgomery's own story and was brought to life by video director Ed Pryor for Hideout Pictures. In the video, Montgomery celebrates survival despite hardship and loss and shines a spotlight on everyday heroes.

"This was a hard song to write, but it's one that I thought so many could relate to," said Montgomery. "We've all had losses, fought the good fight and rose to celebrate a new day. I hope friends and fans take away a renewed sense of gratefulness for the life they live when they hear this song."

Tour dates for Eddie Montgomery and the Montgomery Gentry Band are:
Aug. 27 Vevay, IN
Aug.28 Franklin, OH
Aug. 29 DeKalb, IL
Sept. 4 Sparks, NV
Sept. 10 Marion, OH
Sept. 11 Winston-Salem, NC
Sept. 18 Elk River, MN
Sept. 25 Fort Smith, AR

CD review - Here's to You It's impossible to listen to Montgomery Gentry's "Here's to You," without also feeling sad that it's the last studio album featuring Troy Gentry, who died in a helicopter crash. When they sing, "Here's to the ones who ain't in here tonight" during "Needing a Beer" and then go on to praise fireman and cops for being elsewhere fighting crime, you may be struck by the fact that Gentry also "ain't in here tonight. ...
CD review - Folks Like Us Where once Garth Brooks was criticized for not being country enough, today we have hip hop artists making cameos and artists like Sam Hunt topping the country charts with EDM songs. With no release since 2011's "Rebels on the Run," we see Montgomery Gentry return to a radically different country music scene than the one they were a part of at the turn of the century.
