Columbia Records duo Montgomery Gentry will release their highly anticipated 8th album, Hits And More: Life Beside A Gravel Road, on September 28. The project is a collection of previously released fan favorites with three new tracks.
Since releasing their first Greatest Hits project, Montgomery Gentry has received a Grammy nomination for their single, “Lucky Man” from their Some People Change album, and an ACM Album of the Year nomination for 2008’s Back When I Knew It All. In addition, the duo has scored three No. 1 and three Top 5 singles. With their continuing streak of hits, it became clear that they needed to put out a second greatest hits package.
“When we put out our first Greatest Hits album, Eddie and I felt like we’d just gotten started,” Troy Gentry says. “We’re always trying to better ourselves both in the studio and on stage. If you look at the direction Montgomery Gentry has gone, we started out with the hard-driving, in-your-face, honky-tonk, hell-raising style and carried that over into more working man’s songs. We’ve really tried to connect and relate to our fans through our music over the years.”
The new album features favorites like “Lucky Man,” and “Roll With Me,” that reflect the continued maturing of Montgomery Gentry. “Our fans are the most important to us,” says Eddie Montgomery. “And over these last few years on the road, we’ve realized that our fans go crazy over some of the newer songs too.”
Hits And More: Life Beside A Gravel Road also includes the current single, “While You’re Still Young.”
“We weren’t about to give our fans another Greatest Hits album without some new Montgomery Gentry music to look forward to,” Gentry says. “The new songs keep to our roots. When we sing a song, it’ll always tell a story. That’s just who we are.”
