Country music duo Halfway to Hazard will join Eddie Montgomery on the road for several live concert performances on the Montgomery Gentry “Here’s To You” tour.
Halfway to Hazard’s David Tolliver and Chad Warrix were longtime friends of fellow Kentuckian Troy Gentry, who passed away following a helicopter crash last September.
“It’s really hard to capture all the emotions I’m feeling with the anticipation of opening for MG this year,” says Warrix. “Troy will be so heavy on all our hearts. Eddie and the guys can use our shoulders to lean on if they need em. Lord knows we will need theirs.”
Tolliver adds, “Troy was one of our best friends, and we miss him everyday. If we can honor him and help keep his music alive we are gonna do it. I’m so happy to be going out with Eddie and playing shows. It just feels like something we are supposed do, and I can’t wait.”
The duo will open nine live shows on the tour, with the first scheduled for this Friday, February 9, in Columbia, MO.
