Troy Gentry, of the popular American country duo, Montgomery Gentry, died in a helicopter crash in Medford, New Jersey, on September 8, 2017.  A passenger in the helicopter, the 50-year-old was in town for a scheduled performance.  Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Gentry began playing with local friend and drummer, Eddie Montgomery in 1990. Over the next several years, they morphed into different bands and configurations until they finally settled on Montgomery Gentry, and were signed to Sony Nashville in 1999. What followed was a remarkable string of hits, both at country radio and on the charts, with songs like, “Roll With Me,” ”Back When I Knew It All,” and ”Lucky Man.”  In all, the band has sold over six million albums to date. Montgomery Gentry were also a very popular concert draw across much of the US and beyond, as fans lined up for their electrifying Southern Rock-influenced sound.  At the time of Gentry’s death, they were reportedly working on the follow-up to their 2015 album, Folks Like Us.
