Troy Gentry spent his childhood with his brother in his hometown, where he was raised by his parents, Lloyd and Patricia Gentry. Upon matriculation, he enrolled into Lexington Community College, from which he transferred to the University of Kentucky, where he majored in Business Management and Marketing.

Speaking about Troy’s career as a musician, it began in 1990, when he started performing along with brothers Edward and John Montgomery in various bands, including Early Tymz. Although he tried to pursue his career as a solo artist, winning the 1994 Jim Bean National Talent Competition, he eventually reunited with Edward Montgomery, and together they formed the duo called Deuce in 1999 – later renamed to Montgomery Gentry – and signed a contract with Columbia Records. During the same year, they released their debut studio album entitled “Tattoos & Scars”, reaching No. 10 on the US Billboard Top Country Albums chart, and achieving platinum certification, which marked the establishment of his net worth. In the following year, the duo won the Top New Vocal Duo Award from the Academy of Country Music.

In 2002 out came their second studio album – “Carrying On” – which peaked at No. 49 on the US Billboard Top 200 chart, and was certified gold by RIAA, so adding a considerable amount to Troy’s net worth. Their next major success came in the same year, when they released their third album entitled “My Town”, which spawned three top five hit singles – “Speed”, “Hell Yeah” and “My Town”. So, the album reached No. 26 on the US Billboard Top 200 as well as No. 3 on the Top Country Albums. By the end of the decade, they had released three more albums – “You Do Your Thing” (2004), “Some People Changed” (2006) and “Back When I Knew It All” (2008) – all of which reached the top five on the charts.

To speak further about his musical career, the duo released their next album “Rebels On The Run” in 2011, peaking at No. 9 on the US Billboard 200, increasing Troy’s net worth by a large margin. The album entitled “Folks Like Us” was released in 2015, and most recently out came their last album “Here’s To You” (2018), which was released just after his death.

If to talk about his personal life, Troy Gentry was married to Angie McClure from 1999 until his death; the couple had two daughters together. He was previously married to Kia Bradley, with whom he also had a daughter. He passed away in a helicopter crash, at the age of 50, before the duo’s concert in New Jersey, on the 8th September 2017 in Medford, New Jersey.
