 MONTGOMERY GENTRY WITH EDDIE MONTGOMERY:

"Here's To You"

Originally conceived to mark Montgomery Gentry's 20th anniversary, their dynamic new album Here's To You now represents the triumphant start to a new legacy.

On September 8, 2017, Troy Gentry died in a helicopter crash at the age of 50. The new collection which was recorded before his dealth, serves as a reminder of the iconic pair's powerful presence and also points to fruitful future for Eddie Montgomery and the Montgomery Gentry brand.

The album's title, "Here's To You," is both a tribute to Troy and to the band's rabid fans. "We don't call them fans, we call them friends," says Eddie. "They're who go us our deal."

Produced by Noah Gordon (Cold Ford) and Shannon Houchins (Brantley Gilbert) the album is one of Montgomery Gentry's best. "It's probably the greatest album we've done since Tattoos & Scars, "says Eddie Montgomery. "Coming up on our 20th anniversary we wanted to put out a killer album. We hunted and hunted for the right songs. In the sutdio we were feeling really loose. It was just beautiful and a lot of fun."

There's another reason Eddie believes Here's To You is one of their best: Troy's sweet, high tenor was on full display. "I've heard him sing since he was a teenager," says Eddie, "and Troy's soul came out on this album. It's the bes he's ever sang."

 

Despite Troy's passing, the show will go on, according to Eddie. "We talked about it a long time ago. We both said, "If one of us goes down, we want the MG brand to keep going. I will continue to honor him and our friends."

With the release of Here's To You the band's legacy remains solidly intact and robust touring schedule will ensure that the music that they labored over for two years will be shared with old and new "friends" alike. Two thousand and eighteen will no doubt be celebrated and remembered as the next chapter for the kindred spirits who pledged to continue their musical journey and put their friends first no matter what.

 

PHIL VASSAR:
Country music hitmaker Phil Vassar is a piano-pounding powerhouse on stage who taps into his audiences via social media for song requests throughout his more than 135 shows a year. Phil’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including Carlene, Just Another Day in Paradise, Six-Pack Summer, When I Love You; and many more. Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career that has seen the release of six albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country. Vassar's songwriting career blossomed in the mid- ’90s when he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye (Little Red Rodeo), Alan Jackson (Right on the Money), Tim McGraw (For a Little While), Jo Dee Messina (Bye Bye, Alright), and Blackhawk (Postmarked Birmingham). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP's Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999. Vassar continues to churn out incisive, soulful lyrics and infectious melodies that capture the heart and soul in the unique and special way that only he can.
