Montgomery Gentry does a 360
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
– Montgomery Gentry just released an interactive version of their video for the Top 5 hit, Roll With Me,
exclusively on-line at www.hearsomethingcountry.com. Filmed using the 360 degree filming process, this marks the first short-form country music video to be seen panorama style. Viewers can watch the duo's video from any angle they choose by panning across the screen.
Filmed in San Francisco by director Steven L. Weaver, the image was captured using a specifically designed panorama camera lens attachment. This camera lens rig attachment reflects everything it sees.
"I've been waiting to shoot 360 degree for years now. Finally I had the opportunity with Montgomery Gentry," said Weaver. "The camera and lens rig were mounted to the front of the truck, allowing us to see where we were going and where we were coming from. Driving through the city created such a cool rolling effect, which was perfect for Roll With Me. The greatest challenge was keeping the crew and rigging out of the shots - the 360 camera rig literally sees everything!"
Montgomery Gentry's hit single is the follow-up to the chart-topperBack When I Knew It All.

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. ...
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. Bro country has enjoyed a large amount of success in recent years, and it is arguable that this duo is one of the ...
