Montgomery Gentry to Release New 7-Song EP, “Outskirts”

Montgomery Gentry will release a new seven-song EP, Outskirts, on June 14.

Produced by Noah Gordon and Shannon Houchins, the EP was recorded in September 2017, days prior to Troy Gentry’s death in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8, 2017. The new EP includes covers of Merle Haggard’s “What Am I Gonna Do With the Rest of My Life” and Darrell Scott’s “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive,” while “King of the World” features the guitar chops of Grammy-winner Steve Vai.

“Can’t wait for my friends to hear these songs,” says Eddie Montgomery. “T-Roy and I had a blast recording them.”
