“We love speaking to our audiences and we know that this area loves country music! We’re in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains after all! That said, we are delighted to be able to present to Roanoke one of the most dynamic and beloved pop country duo acts on the scene in Montgomery Gentry,” Across-the-Way Productions CEO Kris Hodges said.

When the two Kentucky boys — Eddie, is from Lancaster and Troy is from Lexington — 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 Montgomery Gentry.

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,” Troy said. “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.”

Montgomery Gentry is a duo with 14 Top 10 singles, 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.”

But awards and accolades aside, it’s Eddie and Troy’s induction into the venerable Grand Ole Opry in 2009 that means the most to them: “Unlike other awards, becoming members of the Grand Ole Opry is something people can’t take away from you,” Troy said. “Other awards come and go, but once you become a member of The Opry, you are a member for life — that’s something that Eddie and I are very proud to be a part of.”

Make no mistake about it — Montgomery Gentry has secured a place in musical history with a unique blend of country, Southern rock and Everly Brothers-like harmonies combined with relatable lyrics, and Across-the-Way Productions is proud and pumped to welcome the country music super-duo to Elmwood Amphitheater on Friday, June 9.

Combining blues and rock with a touch of country and a heap of nostalgia, Philadelphia-based rockers Stolen Rhodes is bringing their fiery, gasoline-laden live show and catchy songs to open the June 9 event at Elmwood Amphitheater.

Tickets for ‘Montgomery Gentry LIVE at Elmwood Amphitheater’ cost $25 in advance and $35 at the gate for GENERAL ADMISSION; $600 in advance and $700 at the gate for a VIP BOX, which can seat up to 10 people and includes food and drink service from Martin’s Downtown, a snack tray, early admission, water and special keepsake seat cushions; and $45 in advance and $55 at the gate for SWEET SEATS, which offer the ‘best seats in the house’ along with early admission, wait service from Martin’s Downtown, and a special keepsake seat cushion.

BIO

When the two Kentucky boys—Eddie, is from Lancaster and Troy is from Lexington 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.”

“People are going to be able to touch on each one of our songs and say. ‘Yeah man, that song is a little bit about me,’ or ‘I know a person that lives next door to me that’s been through what you just got done singing about,’” Troy continues. “People can associate themselves with our songs.”

“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.”

Who they are is a duo with fourteen Top 10 singles, 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.”

But awards and accolades aside, it’s Eddie and Troy’s induction into the venerable Grand Ole Opry in 2009 that means the most to them.

“Unlike other awards, becoming members of the Grand Ole Opry is something people can’t take away from you,” Troy says. “Other awards come an go, but once you become a member of The Opry, you are a member for life—that’s something that Eddie and I are very proud to be a part of.”

There’s no doubt that they’re hard‐running honky tonkers, but Eddie and Troy are also empathetic citizens of the world. 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.

Make no mistake about it: Montgomery Gentry has secured a place in musical history with unique blend of country, southern rock and Everly Brothers-like harmonies combined with relatable lyrics. This is especially evident with their latest radio release, “Headlights”, from the highly anticipated album slated to be released in early 2015. With infectious lyrics and an anthem feel, this latest offering from the duo will have fans partying on tailgates well into the future.

“We grew up on Charlie Daniels, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Merle Haggard,” Eddie says with conviction. “That’s who we are. We cut our teeth in the honky tonks and no matter what you try to do, we have to be us or it just doesn’t sound right.”
