Montgomery Gentry’s, Folks Like Us, produced by Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett), hit stores earlier this week. The project, the pair’s first record in over three years, is already generating rave reviews from fans and critics alike:
“Montgomery Gentry shine on ‘Folks Like Us’…the longtime Kentucky partners prove they can match the young bucks when it comes to songs packed with attitude and personality.” – Associated Press
“An enduring force in the country music climate… Folks Like Us … a collection of songs written by Nashville’s heavyweights like Chris Stapleton and David Lee Murphy that talks about hillbillies, dirt roads and small towns. It’s like Montgomery Gentry have always done, but with a little extra pep in that electric guitar step.” – Rolling Stone Country
“On Folks Like Us, Montgomery Gentry tell stories about those make-or-break moments, such as “Better For It,” which details what the love of that right person can do, as well as the gripping “Pain,” which contains some of the best vocal work that Eddie Montgomery has done in his sixteen years of recording.” – #CMChat
Adding to the exciting week, the duo shares a backstage glimpse of “A Night At The Opry,” where they talk about the making of the new album, what it means to be an Opry member, and more. The video for the album’s new single and title track is currently airing on CMT, CMT Pure Country and Great American Country.
