Eddie Montgomery is finally speaking about the death of his longtime musical partner and friend, Troy Gentry. In a statement, he said, "I want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. Our world was turned upside down in an instant and nothing could have prepared us for this. Over the past few months me and T-Roy have been working on what I think is the best record of our career. In the last few weeks we had been talking about what our first single would be. Then on September 8, none of that mattered." Gentry died on that day following a helicopter crash in New Jersey. The statement also mentioned Montgomery Gentry's new song "Better Me," which was played at Gentry's celebration of life. Montgomery noted that Troy is at his best on the new record. He added, "It speaks volumes about his life and who he had become and everybody he touched and how much he loved his family. I am so proud of this song and also to call him my friend, my family, my brother for 30 years."
