Montgomery Gentry's latest album is the aptly-titled 'Rebels on the Run.' Produced by Michael Knox, the man behind Jason Aldean's albums, the rebellious duo's disc finds them on the run to a new record label, Average Joe's Entertainment. But while the album may have new personnel around it, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry aren't running from the roots of their upbringing or their loyal fan base -- the working-class men and women they've been singing for -- and about -- since the release of their 1999 debut single, 'Hillbilly Shoes.'
The Kentucky lads' latest single, 'Where I Come From,' has touched the hearts of people who are as proud of their hometowns as Eddie and Troy are of theirs, with fans coming up to them at every show to welcome them to their hometown. In the midst of their hectic schedule, Eddie and Troy sat down with The Boot to find out more about their latest album and to talk gun ownership, family vacations and the one "nuts" thing Eddie will never do!
The new single 'Where I Come From' is a pretty familiar theme for you. Why is it so important to you?
Eddie: We kind of make jokes about it ... it's 'My Town' with an attitude. I love the song. It doesn't matter where you go in this world, you always take a little piece of your home with you. The video has already had more than a million hits on it, which is incredible.
Troy: I was thinking about it earlier today and it kind of dawned on me, it kind of reminds me of 'Hillbilly Shoes' in that the message was 'don't judge me before you walk a mile in my hillbilly shoes.' This says, "Don't you dare talk about my town until you've been around the block with me. Let me show you what's going on here." So it's kind of got a little bit of both messages in this one song. It's a pretty cool tune, a well-written tune.
