Eddie Montgomery performed his final heartbreaking act for Montgomery Gentry bandmate Troy Gentry when he served as one of his nine pallbearers at his funeral in Nashville last week.
Now, People asks if he’ll ever perform again after Gentry’s untimely tragic death in a helicopter crash on September 8.
“So far, the 53-year-old has remained silent, making no public statements or posting on his Twitter and Facebook accounts…What will Eddie Montgomery do now?” the outlet writes.
At the funeral service last week, Eddie Montgomery hardly walked a few paces before people began approaching him to offer their condolences, one after another after another.
Keith Urban was also present, and the two men clutched each other for several moments while speaking together, both wiping tears from their eyes as they parted.
Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Trace Adkins and Charlie Daniels also performed at the tribute, which was held at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House.
“There is still one more Montgomery Gentry album left to promote. Its release is expected in the coming months… In the meantime, no doubt Montgomery will continue to grieve.”
A new Montgomery Gentry song, “Better Me,” is now available to stream and buy after it was played at the end of Troy Gentry’s public celebration of life last week.
The song, which was recorded for an upcoming album, and Rolling Stone Country reports that the status of the new album “remains unknown at this time.”
