Country Star Eddie Montgomery's Debut Solo Album, 'Ain't No Closing Me Down' To Be Released 10/29


Country artist Eddie Montgomery has endured many heartaches and tragedies over these past few years, but his strength has pulled him through. His latest upcoming release if proof of that.


The title track is a rock-driven, honky-tonk offering that addresses Montgomery’s outlook for the future; “Alive and Well,” “sings about resilience in the face of adversity,” (Rolling Stone Country), and “My Son” featured on the soundtrack of a new American Western film, “Old Henry,” is a cautionary tale from a father to a son. Highlights on the new album also include “Higher,” a duet with country royalty Tanya Tucker; “She Just Loves Me,” a love song to his wife - the first love song Montgomery has ever written; and “Ain’t She Beautiful,” an incredible ballad co-written by nephew Walker Montgomery.


Montgomery Gentry’s sound is at the heart and soul of Eddie Montgomery’s album. The Wild Bunch, Montgomery Gentry’s band for the past 20 years, played on the recording sessions for the new album and provides both a tribute to his late partner, Troy Gentry, as well as a sonic bridge to carry out his legacy well into the future.


“Troy is with me and will always be with me. He helped me write this album,” remarked Eddie, who wrote on eight of the 12 tracks. “I got together with some of my best songwriting buddies and we wrote about life – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the party on the weekends."
