Troy Gentry's tragic death in a Friday helicopter crash brought a brutal, unexpected end to nearly two decades working with Eddie Montgomery (brother of John Michael Montgomery) as Montgomery Gentry, a duo never lost touch with their Kentucky roots MG kept the southern rock sound alive in their music, continuing a tradition that began in the 1970's with southern rock-flavored country by Hank Williams Jr. and the Charlie Daniels Band. The duo were high energy all the way.
