Country music duo Montgomery Gentry have caught the attention of the Professional Championship Bullriders, and the two forces will team-up together for a 2012 co-headlining arena tour kicking off in January. The tour will feature 35 of the world’s best bullriders taking on the nation’s toughest, rankest bulls in the world, and when the dust settles, a Montgomery Gentry concert at each stop.
“We’re pairing some of the toughest superstars in all of professional bull riding and the rowdiest duo in all of country music,” said a Professional Championship Bullriders spokesman. ”This tour will be an affordable night of entertainment for the entire family including plenty of non-stop action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
The first two dates will go on sale are the first two dates of the tour on January 13th and 14th, 2012 at Battle Creek, Michigan’s Kellogg Arena and the February 3rd date at Chicago’s Sears Center Arena. Ten dates have been confirmed so far, with additional dates to be announced in the New Year.
“We’ve done bull riding and rodeo shows our entire careers,” said Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry. “Our audiences definitely cross over, and to be on a full-blown tour with these guys really takes it to a new level.”
“Yeah, people say we’re crazy for what we do, but it’s nothin’ like these bull riders,” added MG’s microphone-spinning Eddie Montgomery. “You’ll probably see us in the crowd every night watchin’ these guys try to ride a 2000-pound pissed off bull. Now that’s some entertainment!”
Tickets for the January 13 & 14 dates range from $35.00 to $55.00, and children ages 12 and under are $15.00. All tickets are plus applicable taxes and fees. Tickets for the February 3rd date range from $17.00 to $52.00, children 12 and under are $10 – all plus applicable taxes and fees.
It’s been a few months since the release of Montgomery Gentry‘s “Rebels On The Run” on Average Joe’s Entertainment, but the duo are still looking for the winner of their Demented Cycle “golden ticket”. Somewhere in a physical copy of the album is a “golden ticket” which gives the fan a custom Demented Cycle motorcycle designed by the pair themselves!
“Rebels On The Run” is still available at all physical album outlets. Maybe a lucky fan somewhere will get the Willy Wonka-esque surprise Christmas morning.

Looks like the three year wait was a good one for the boys of Montgomery Gentry. Their first album together on Average Joe’s Entertainment debuted inside the top ten on the SoundScan Country chart. The album, produced by Michael Knox, celebrates a return to the duo’s musical roots of previous albums that helped establish them as a force to be reckoned with that earned them the Duo Of The Year award.
“Man, bein’ away that long, we just didn’t know what to expect,” said the duo’s EddieMontgomery. “Our friends kept comin’ to the shows all that time, and it looks like they were ready for some new music!”
“We have the greatest fans in the world,” added Troy Gentry. “But we definitely don’t take anything for granted. We are so thankful to everyone at Average Joe’s and for the team they put together to get the word out about this album. We’re more excited about what’s going on now than we have been in a long time, and it makes us want to get out and play that much more.”
Somewhere in a store, there’s still one lucky album waiting to be purchased with the golden ticket inside of it. One fan who gets the ticket inside the physical copy of the album will win a custom motorcycle from Demented Cycles that was designed by Troy and Eddie themselves. It’s a one-of-a-kind ride waiting to be found.
Their current single “Where I Come From” is their fastest-rising single to date and their top researching singles at radio.
Montgomery Gentry sat down for a YouTube interview on their new album “Rebels On The Run.” Eddie and Troy discuss their favorite tracks on the album and what went into making their album. Watch the video below:

Montgomery Gentry are back in a big way with their first album on Average Joe’s Entertainment. The duo released “Rebels On The Run” this week, their first album in almost more than three years by the duo. They’ve returned with an edge, back with music like the good old days of Montgomery Gentry: and it works. We received an advanced copy of the album and it hasn’t left my truck since. It’s that good. Country music is about to finally have a challenge for Sugarland for all the duo awards next year. The record is full of everything that made the group who they were and fans of Troy and Eddie are sure to be happy with the new work. It’s hillbilly rock at its finest – it’s all bite with no filler.
“Rebels On The Run” is packed with potential singles, and all of which are some of the best music the duo has released for three albums. Leaving their old label for artistic differences may have been the smartest thing they’ve done in their careers together.
Montgomery Gentry are back in a big way today, releasing their first album together since 2009 and their first on Average Joe’s Entertainment. The duo left their former home at Columbia after creative differences between themselves and the label, which lead to an entire project being shelved permanently.
The new album, in stores and available digitally today, features the fastest-moving single of their career “Where I Come From.”
“They (Average Joe’s) told me and T, ‘Ya’ll go in and make a Montgomery Gentry record and bring it back,’” Eddie recently told Nashville.com. “It took me back to the days of Tattoos and Scars. We just had a blast bein’ in the studio with Michael (Knox) and finding songs, cuttin’ the songs . . .”
“Rebels On The Run” was produced by Michael Knox, whose previous producer credits include work with Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Trace Adkins, Hank Williams Jr., and many others.
Included with every physical copy purchased of the album is a chance to win a custom Demented Choppers motorcycle designed by Eddie and Troy. One album will contain a golden ticket. That’s one way to keep sales up!
Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are all smiles this morning, proud of the new website they built with fan input. Starting today, the new MontgomeryGentry.com website is live and accepting pre-orders of their new album, “Rebels On The Run.” Their new record hits stores October 18th on Average Joe’s Entertainment.
”This has been in the works for a while,” said Troy. “We got a lot of feedback from our fans when we were building the new site, and I think they’re going to like what they see.”
“Yeah, we’ve seen how important the site is to keep us connected to our fans – or friends, as we call them,” added Eddie. “It may not always be G-rated, but it’ll always be MG!”
The new site gives fans even easier access to tour information, Twitter updates by the duo, new music and videos, and up-t0-date news. Their online fan club “Montgomery Gentry Underground” will have more exclusive content, opportunities for meet-and-greets with the duo, and much more to be announced.
Each pre-order of “Rebels On The Run” ordered from their official websites includes a free one-year fan club membership for the fan. Each pre-order also includes the chance to win a grand prize of a custom-made Demented Cycles chopper designed by the duo. One album will have a ‘golden ticket’ to pick out a winner…just like Willy Wonka!
In what seems like a real-life version of Willy Wonka, the boys of Montgomery Gentry are planning on rewarding their fans by giving them a chance to win a custom motorcycle. In one of the pre-ordered copies of their album, one jewel case will contain a golden ticket. That fan will win a one-of-a-kind Demented Cycles motorcycle from the duo. Both Troy and Eddie had input in the design of the bike. Pretty neat!
Pre-orders for “Rebels On The Run” start September 26th on the band’s official website. It’s the first studio album from the pair in three years and will be released on Average Joe’s Entertainment.
