You might catch Eddie Montgomery taking a quick glance at an empty space beside him when he and The Wild Bunch take the stage to play the expected duet hits as well as tunes from his brand-new and mostly raucous solo debut "Ain't No Closing Me Down."
Rowdily honed in Honky-tonks and at parties in their homeland, Montgomery Gentry rocked to stardom in 1999 with propulsive collection "Tattoos & Scars." Over the next 18 years, the duo had 20-plus charted singles, collected CMA, ACM and Grammy nominations and awards with such unsubtle, blue-collar rallying cries as "Hell Yeah", "My Town" and the irrepressible "Hillbilly Shoes."
By tragic circumstance a solo artist, Eddie always feels the presence of Troy Gentry, his honky-tonking partner back to the days they played for beer or a chunk of flesh at a pig roast near their eastern Kentucky roots. "Troy is always with me. He helped me write this album with my heart and soul." Eddie says describing how this new album was birthed after he knew it was time to go on as the M without the G. "Ain't a day goes by that I don't think of him," he says. "We made a promise, a deal, way back when. It was over Jim Beam. It was: If one of us goes down, we want Montgomery Gentry to go on," a brotherhood that remains in his solo billing: "It's always going to be 'Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry.'"
