Country music veteran duo Montgomery Gentry has shared that it has been spending time in the studio, working hard with producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) on its next album. Today, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry can shout from the rooftops that their new album, Folks Like Us, is only a couple of months away.
On June 9th, Folks Like Us will be released on Blaster Records through RED Distribution, marking the first full-length album by the pair in over three years. In explaining what fans can expect from the twosome of Opry members, Gentry stated:
Listening back through our older albums, I can definitely hear some growth and maturity in the new music, but “Folks Like Us” still feels like a Montgomery Gentry record. There are probably a few more introspective moments on the album, and front to back, this might just be our strongest record yet.
We’re still who we are at the roots. I reckon, you let it branch out a little bit and you learn. You live and learn, so that’s what we’ve tried to do with this new record.
