Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry will be remembered during a tribute concert next year in Nashville. The Troy Gentry Foundation Concert, set for Jan. 9 at the Grand Ole Opry House, will include performances by many of the country genre’s biggest stars.
Dierks Bentley, Chris Janson, Rascal Flatts and Eddie Montgomery will perform as part of C’Ya On the Flip Side, which benefits the Troy Gentry Foundation.
Additional performers include Jimmie Allen, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Halfway to Hazard, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jeffrey Steele, Neil Thrasher and Darryl Worley. Lee Brice, Colt Ford, Tracy Lawrence and Ray Scott will also perform while Blake Shelton will co-host the event.
Tickets are currently available to purchase through Ticketmaster and range in price from $40 to $75.
According to the foundation’s website, the mission of The Troy Gentry Foundation is to “continue Troy’s personal beliefs: Love God, Love others. The goals of the foundation are providing financial support to organizations that aid in cancer research, assist military families and families in need, and help provide music education to future generations.”
In addition to raising money for the Troy Gentry Foundation, the concert will benefit countless other causes including the Opry Trust Fund, T. J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, the Journey Home project, as well as scholarships and instruments for music education in Kentucky schools.
Troy died in a helicopter crash in New Jersey in September 2017.
