Just several months following the tragic and unexpected passing of country music singer Troy Gentry, his close friend, and bandmate has revealed the pair’s final album name, artwork, and release date.

Montgomery Gentry was one of the most-successful musical duos to hit the country charts and embarked on a decades-long career that brought them swarms of fans, unforgettable hits, and allowed them to craft a musical legacy that will live on forever.

On September 8th, 2017, one half of the hard-rocking country duo, Troy Gentry, passed away after an accident in a helicopter just hours before he and Eddie Montgomery were scheduled to perform a concert.

Not long after, the first single from what would be their final album together was released to radio and streaming services – and it swept the industry. “Better Me” was a perfect way to honor Gentry’s memory and a way to bring the healing power of music to all of those affected by his tragic passing.

Now, Eddie Montgomery and the rest of their team have finished putting the final touches on the last album these two musical powerhouses worked on. Titled, Here’s To You, this new album is scheduled for release on February 2nd, 2018 and is available for pre-order right now.

Announcing the new album on Twitter, Eddie Montgomery shared a statement reflecting on the last few months and expressing the duo’s feelings about this first new music since 2015.

“Hey guys,” Montgomery writes on the band’s official Twitter account. “I know it’s been a while but it has been a very emotional time, but you will be hearing from [us] soon. Our new music is coming out and I hope you’ll give it a listen. Me and T-Roy were very proud of this new cd.”

If you pre-order their new album, you will automatically get three of the twelve tracks – one being the album’s first single, “Better Me.”
