    Montgomery Gentry is an American country music duo, founded in the 1990s. The duo consists of Eddie Montgomery (born Gerald Edward Montgomery in Danville, Kentucky on September 30, 1963) and Troy Gentry (born Troy Lee Gentry in Lexington, Kentucky on April 5, 1967). Eddie is the brother of John Michael Montgomery, a country artist who had considerable crossover success in the 1990s and 2000s; both brothers, along with Troy Gentry, were originally members of the same band in the early 1990s.

    Between 1999 and the present, Montgomery Gentry has charted twenty-one singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, three of which have reached Number One. The duo has also recorded five studio albums, plus a Greatest Hits package, all on Columbia Records.

    Eddie Montgomery and his brother John lived in Garrard County, Kentucky. Before the duo's formation, Eddie and Troy sang together with Eddie's younger brother, John Michael Montgomery in a band called Early Tymz. In the early 1990s, John Michael left the group and started a highly successful solo career that is ongoing. Eddie and Troy, the remaining members of the group, then went through several name changes before they decided to call themselves Montgomery Gentry.

    In 1994, Troy won the Jim Beam National Talent Contest and he began to open for acts such as Patty Loveless, Tracy Byrd and John Michael Montgomery.

    Gentry was unable to find a solo record deal, so he teamed up with Eddie Montgomery once again to form the duo Montgomery Gentry, debuting in 1999. The pair won the Vocal Duo of the Year award at the Country Music Association Awards in 2000.[1]
