– Montgomery Gentry have the fastest rising single of their career with "Back When I Knew It All," the lead-off single and title track from their next album to be released in June. After impacting 4 weeks ago, the song went Top 20 at R&R.
"Man, we thought we knew it all back then, but it sure feels like we have it all now. Eddie and I are thrilled that our single has gotten such a positive reaction so fast," said Troy Gentry. "We are so fortunate to keep on rockin' and want to thank radio and the Columbia Nashville radio promotion staff for all their hard work and faith in us."
Montgomery Gentry is currently on location in New Orleans for a photo shoot. The duo will be hitting the road again later this year with tour dates to be announced soon.
