Letting fans know through social media, Montgomery became vulnerable when speaking about Here’s to You and the year he’s gone through after losing his duo partner but still alerted their supporters that new music was on the way sooner rather than later.
“Hey Guys – I know it’s been a while but it has been a very emotional time, but you will be hearing from me 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. -Eddie,” Montgomery captioned the shot of the cover art for the album.
Gentry tragically passed away after a helicopter accident on September 8 while on his way to a gig in New Jersey. The singer was honored by many other singers in the industry, and finally laid to rest after a celebration of life hosted at the Grand Ole Opry on September 14.
Nevertheless, Montgomery continued on and dedicated the song, “Better Me,” to Gentry with a special lyric video documenting the good times they spent together before Gentry passed away.
“‘Better Me’ is a song we all loved and Troy sings his ass off on it. It speaks volumes about his life and who he had become and everybody he touched and how much he loved his family. I am so proud of this song and also to call him my friend, my family, my brother for 30 years,” said Montgomery.
Their last album together as a duo will be released sometime in February.
