Gentry's wife fights breast cancer
Thursday, October 23, 2014
– ,P>Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry announced that his wife is fighting breast cancer.
Gentry posted on Facebook, ""As you know, we launched this Check Your Headlights campaign for breast cancer awareness in early October. What you didn't know is that right before we launched, my beautiful Angie got a diagnosis from her doctor that has rocked our world a bit over the last few weeks. She has breast cancer - and we wanted you to hear it from us first. She is currently going through chemo treatments and her prognosis is very good. We'd love for you to keep her in your prayers over the next few months."
Gentry and band mate Eddie Montgomery launched a breast cancer awareness campaign earlier this month. Gentry said on the band's web site, "It was just a no-brainer to put this bundle together to help bring awareness and help raise some money for a great cause through the American Cancer Society. Being married and having two daughters, breast cancer is something that's always in the back of your mind."
The duo is performing at the sixth annual Opry Goes Pink concert at the end of this month.
Montgomery Gentry has worked with producer Michael Knox on a new album due out in early 2015.

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 ...
