 To Headline Kentucky Cares Tornado Relief 
Benefit Concert Presented By 98.1 The Bull

Proceeds To Benefit American Red Cross 
New Single, “So Called Life,” Impacting Country Radio Now

Nashville, Tenn. (May 1, 2012) — 98.1 WBUL The Bull has announced Montgomery Gentry to headline the Kentucky Cares Concert on May 9 to benefit victims from the recent tornado that ripped through eastern Kentucky in early March. The concert will be held in Lexington, KY at Busters Billiards & Backroom with proceeds to go to the local American Red Cross. Presented by 98.1 The Bull, tickets are on sale now at http://www.ticketfly.com/. Fellow Kentuckian Laura Bell Bundy will also be performing.

“Our hearts went out to all those family and businesses that were affected by the storms,” says Eddie Montgomery.  “We’ve been trying to organize something for a while so we’re real glad this worked out with The Bull.  This is our home and we want to do everything we can to help.”

Troy Gentry adds, “We were devastated to hear of the destruction that went through Kentucky.  We are honored to help out and look forward to a big hometown party and raising much needed funds for these communities that need it.”

The dynamic duo, known for their hard-core country anthems, have released “So Called Life” as the second single from their seventh studio album, Rebels On The Run. This is the duo’s first album release on powerhouse indie label Average Joes Entertainment. Written by Sean Patrick McGraw and Bruce Wallace, “So Called Life” is the follow-up single to Montgomery Gentry’s Top 10 radio smash “Where I Come From.”  The guitar driven, in-your-face lyrics resonate with every hard-working American. Troy Gentry explains, “It’s about putting your nose to the grindstone and busting your butt everyday—doing what you have to do.”

Eddie Montgomery says, “ This (song) is for everybody that works for a living, gets a paycheck and half of it is already gone.  It’s just your ‘so called life’ and hell, they want to get to the weekend and have a damn good time.”

The new single has garnered outstanding reviews, receiving four ½ stars from Billy Dukes from Taste of Country. Dukes commented that the new song is “evidence that Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery Gentry are back” going on to say, “‘So Called Life’ bares teeth fans haven’t seen in five years. With cut-throat guitar and organ solos towards the end and a rhythm section that grabs hold of you early on and never lets go, this song promises to provide one of the louder slots on the radio this summer.”

Billboard reviewed the new single as a “high-octane number brimming with the edge and attitude country fans have come to expect from the rowdy Kentucky duo.” Referring to “So Called Life” as a “fiery anthem” saying its “relatable lyrics ensure the song’s success.”

Montgomery Gentry have recently been nominated for “Duo of the Year” for the upcoming 2012 CMT Music Awards to be held on June 6.  Fans can vote now at CMT.com http://www.cmt.com/cmt-music-awards/categories.jhtml
