Eddie Montgomery Plots Montgomery Gentry’s 2018 Tour

New Tour Commemorates the Band’s 20th Anniversary and Supports Here’s To You

Eddie Montgomery will return to the stage as Montgomery Gentry in 2018 for 25 performances supporting the new album Here’s To You (out Feb. 2).

The tour marks the first Montgomery Gentry shows since the death of his longtime band mate Troy Gentry, who was killed in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8. Gentry was 50.

“I’m anxious to get back out on the road and play some new music for our friends and fans,” Montgomery said in a release. “Next year marks the 20th anniversary of our band — we’ve got lots to celebrate and look forward to in 2018.”

The tour launches on Jan. 19-20 in South Dakota and Missouri with opening performances supporting Alabama. Here’s To You, featuring the lead single “Better Me,” is available for pre-order via Pledge Music. Online donations for the T.J. Martell Foundation are being accepted upon purchase. The nonprofit supports cancer research, and Montgomery Gentry is proud to continue to help the cause with the release of Here’s To You.
