New Montgomery Gentry Project ‘Outskirts’ Set For June 14 Release

Montgomery Gentry’s new seven-track EP, Outskirts, is slated for release on June 14 via Average Joes Entertainment. Those pre-ordering the album, produced by Noah Gordon and Shannon Houchins, will instantly receive the new song “King of the World” featuring guitar virtuoso Steve Vai.

“‘King of the World’ is the way I want to live my life when I grow up,” said Eddie Montgomery. “When I found out that guitar God, Steve Vai, was into it…that made it the s**t. Wow, still can’t believe Steve Vai is playing on one of my songs!!”

The project was recorded in September of 2017 and marks a return to the duo’s signature southern rock sound. Among the standout tracks on the new album are the title track, which touts the virtues of small town living and common core values, Montgomery’s version of Merle Haggard’s “What Am I Going To Do With The Rest Of My Life,” and Gentry’s take on the Darrell Scott classic “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive.” Writers contributing to the new project include Ashley Gorley, Darrell Scott, Dallas Davidson, Rodney Clawson, and more.
