Montgomery Gentry Rolls to the Far East
Tuesday, February 01, 2011
Grammy nominated country music artists Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, who comprise Montgomery Gentry, have recently completed their third USO tour, bringing their own unique brand of beats and humor to the troops and their families based in Korea and Japan.
Service men and women at Camp Casey, Camp Humphreys, Camp Bonafis, Camp Mujuk, Kadena Air Base and Camp Foster enjoyed two acoustic performances and four full band shows while the duo got to extend their gratitude to the service men and women by posing for photos, signing autographs and offering up countless hugs of support.
"Our USO tour to Korea and Okinawa was just as awesome as our first trip to Germany and the Persian Gulf was back in '06," said Eddie Montgomery. "It was an unbelievable experience and we both can't wait to go back out there and do it again soon. God bless our heroes that are over there and everybody that supports them."
Troy Gentry concurred.
"The more USO tours we go out on, the more appreciation we have for our men and women in uniform and their families. This was an amazing trip from start to finish and we truly had a great time going from place to place visiting and performing for our nation's troops."
Previously, Montgomery Gentry participated in USO tours to Germany, Kuwait and Iraq in 2006 and to Nevada's Nells Air Force Base in 2010. The duo has performed together for more than 11 years and released more than 20 chart-topping singles.
