When Eddie and Troy, the two boys from Kentucky, first burst onto the national scene in 1999 with the defiant "Hillbilly Shoes" notice was served―country music had never seen a hard driving duo like this. Despite the millions of albums sold, the sold out shows and the scores of awards, Montgomery Gentry remains in touch with its working class roots. "We are blue collar workers and we lived the songs that we sing," says Troy. "Because of that, our fans are able to make the connection and when they hear our songs, they know we are singing with passion and we know what we are talking about." "With us is what you see is what you get," Eddie says of the duo's down-to‐earth demeanor. "We don't act like we don't drink or cuss. We have faults like everybody else and that's who we are."
The duo has fourteen Top 10 singles to their credit, including five No. 1s, "Something To Be Proud Of," "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," Lucky Man," "Back When I Knew It All" and "Roll With Me." Awards and accolades aside, it's their induction into the venerable Grand Ole Opry in 2009 that means the most to them. Acknowledged by the Academy of Country Music as the 2010 winners of its Humanitarian Award, they devote their time and energy into making the needs of others a priority. They are active participants in many charitable organizations, including the U.S. military and numerous charitable organizations such as the TJ Martell Foundation, Camp Horsin' Around and the Make‐A‐Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee among numerous others.
