Montgomery Gentry Performing Father’s Day Concert Following Atlanta Braves Game

Montgomery Gentry will perform a concert Sunday (June 19) at Turner Field in Atlanta following the Texas Rangers’ game against the Braves. The concert is part of Major League Baseball’s Father’s Day celebration, an annual league-wide initiative to promote prostate cancer advocacy, awareness and research. Fans who purchase tickets for the regular season game can attend the postgame concert at no extra charge. Prostate cancer survivors will receive a free game ticket, T-shirt and the opportunity to participate in a special ceremony before the game. Family and friends of survivors can purchase tickets for $12. Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010. Because of early screening and detection, he was treated quickly and is now free of the disease. “I just want to make sure that every guy out there goes and gets checked,” Montgomery said. “Do it for your kids, do it for you. Just go! The reason I had such a great outcome was because they caught it early. I just urge all the men out there to not put off a checkup.”
