Montgomery Gentry and Average Joe’s Entertainment have announced a release date for the duo’s new album “Rebels On The Run.” The 11-song album will be available October 4th, 2011 from the independent powerhouse Average Joe’s Entertainment. Member Eddit Montgomery was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year, which fortunately is now in remission after being caught early.

“In a lot of ways the past year has been has been nothing but hell,” said Eddie Montgomery. “Man, without T-Roy and my family, this music, our fans and the Man upstairs, I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through it.”

“I don’t know if we would have made the same album if we hadn’t been through everything we’ve been through in the last year,” added Troy. “We’ve always tried to record songs about things we’ve lived or seen, but the depth of all of those experiences really comes out in this album.”

The group made the biggest change of their careers by leaving their home of Columbia Nashville for Average Joe’s Entertainment. Average Joe’s encouraged Eddie and Troy to “go in and make some Montgomery Gentry music” with producer Michael Knox. Knox’s past credits include Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Hank Williams Jr., and many others. They focused on bringing back the music that they first came into music city with that earned them the love from their fans in the first place.

 

 

Eddie and Troy collaborated with Ira Dean, Jim Collins, Wendell Mobley, David Lee Murphy, Rivers Rutherford, and Neil Thrasher with three tracks on “Rebels On The Run.” Rodney Clawson and Dallas Davidson co-wrote the lead single from the album, “Where I Come From.” Friends Greg Bates, Kelly Archer, Kevin Grantt, and Justin Weaver contributed to the rest of the songs on the record.

Montgomery Gentry are on tour this week with shows in California, Las Vegas and Colorado. The duo were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009 and they will return to the historic stage September 13th. They are also set to headline the 28th Annual Love Ride Motorcycle Ride with Jay Leno on October 23rd just outside Los Angeles.
