Default RIP Troy Gentry

Really sad day in country music as not only did Don Williams pass away but Troy Gentry, who was part of the duo Montgomery Gentry, died in a helicopter crash in New Jersey this afternoon where he was going to perform with Eddie Montgomery tonight. I loved their songs and saw them at CMA Fest two years ago. He was only 50 too and can't imagine what his family and Eddie are going through.

Very sad news indeed. Mt heart goes out to his family, Eddie Montgomery, friends, and colleagues. Troy was very talented, loved his voice and personality. He will be missed.

I live about 15 minutes away from the Lumberton/Medford area, and it was definitely a shock to hear the news. I wasn't very fond of him because he killed a tame bear that was caged, and therefore defenseless, but I certainly send my condolences to his family and friends.

I liked some of their music but I did get turned off after that whole canned hunt incident. He got caught and paid his fine so hopefully he saw the error of his ways.

RIP Troy Gentry
