Montgomery Gentry headlines Country in the Rockies

Friday, September 7, 2007 – Montgomery Gentry will headline the 2008 Country in the Rockies event in Steamboat Springs, Col. from Jan. 23-27, 2008. Country in the Rockies is one of the T.J. Martell Foundation's signature events that brings together chart-topping artists, musicians, songwriters and other celebrities with patrons to raise vital dollars to support leukemia, cancer and AIDS research.

"First and foremost, we believe in the TJ Martell Foundation and the great work they've done over the years," said Troy Gentry. "Eddie and I have gotten to participate in a lot of Martell events, but we've never been to Country in the Rockies."

"Yeah, this is something we've wanted to do for a long time," said Montgomery. "They're gonna see a different kind of party in Steamboat Springs."

No other musical guests were named.

The event offers participants an all-inclusive ski package with air and ground transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, gifts, wine tastings, winter activities, nightly entertainment, hospitality, and the opportunity to participate in a celebrity ski race. The package also includes a special performance by Montgomery Gentry and special guests on Friday, January 25 at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel. The package price is $3,900 per person based on double or single occupancy.

Country in the Rockies was started thirteen years ago when Frances Preston, national President of the T.J. Martell Foundation decided to create a new event for the Foundation. At that time, she was President and CEO of BMI, a performance rights organization that has strong ties to the music and entertainment business. "We are thrilled to have Montgomery Gentry involved with Country in the Rockies," said Preston. "They are wonderful supporters of the T.J. Martell Foundation and will be a special part of our event in January."

Gentry was only 50 years-old at the time of his fatal helicopter crash, but he had accomplished much: the longstanding partnership with Eddie Montgomery had yielded five number one singles, and dozens of other hits. 2018's "Here's To You" release was completed at the time of the tragedy. ...
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. Bro country has enjoyed a large amount of success in recent years, and it is arguable that this duo is one of the ...
