Dierks Bentley, Chris Janson, Rascal Flatts and Eddie Montgomery will all perform at “C’Ya on the Flip Side,” a concert event benefitting the Troy Gentry Foundation set for January 9th at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House. Blake Shelton and Storme Warren, of SiriusXM’s the Highway, will co-host.
Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Jimmie Allen, Halfway to Hazard, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jeffrey Steele, Neil Thrasher and Darryl Worley are also on the bill, along with Lee Brice, Colt Ford, Tracy Lawrence and Ray Scott. The concert will also benefit the Opry Trust Fund, T. J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, the Journey Home project, and scholarships and instruments for music education in Kentucky schools.
The Troy Gentry Foundation was founded in the memory of the late singer-guitarist, one half of the multi-award-winning duo Montgomery Gentry with partner Eddie Montgomery. Its diverse goals including providing financial support for cancer research, military families and music education. The 50-year-old Gentry was killed in a helicopter crash in Medford, New Jersey, in September 2017.
Earlier this month, the duo’s anniversary album, Montgomery Gentry: 20 Years of Hits, was released. It features reworked versions of the pair’s biggest hits — tracks re-recorded just prior to Gentry’s death — including “Lucky Man” and “Hillbilly Shoes,” and includes special guests like Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley and Granger Smith.
Tickets for “C’Ya on the Flip Side” are available now.
