Montgomery Gentry Announce 2018 Winter Tour

Montgomery Gentry will return to the road in 2018 in celebration of the band’s 20-year anniversary and forthcoming album, “Here’s To You.”  Aptly titled the Here’s to You Tour, the trek will be the first without Troy Gentry, who died in a helicopter accident earlier this year.  There’s no official word, however, on how Gentry’s absence will be addressed, or who if anyone may join the band for the tour to help fill in. The Here’s To You Tour will kick off on Feb. 9, following Montgomery Gentry’s two January dates supporting Alabama, and run through September.

Randy Travis’ Wife Petitioning to Block Singer’s 2012 Arrest Video

Mary Davis-Travis, wife of country superstar Randy Travis, has asked fans to sign a petition to halt the release of dash cam footage from the singer’s 2012 DWI arrest. The Texas Attorney General’s Office is looking to release the footage come this Friday, December 1st. Sheriff’s troopers that responded to the DWI incident back in 2012 claim that Travis was naked and lying in the roadway. Travis refused to take a blood or breath test for alcohol, and ultimately a search warrant demanded a test, and results came back that the singer had a .15 alcohol level.
