Since their debut in 1999, the duo of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry has been a cornerstone of the most important movement in country music since the Outlaws. Their elements consist of straightforward lyrics reflecting the realities of modern life, a show that is completely inclusive of their audience, and a gritty rock edge that has captured the imaginations of their fans. They have joined forces with rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Kid Rock to help rewrite the modern musical landscape.

Country Music Association's 2000 "Duo of the Year," Montgomery Gentry added to their list of stellar accomplishments by becoming Country Music Television's Most Played Duo in 2005. Taking yet another step forward in their music maturation, the band released Some People Change on October 24, 2006.
