Fifty-year-old Gentry was from Lexington, Kentucky, and is survived by his wife, Angie Gentry, and daughters Taylor and Kaylee, according to the Opry website.

"It is with great sadness that we confirm that Troy Gentry, half of the popular country duo, Montgomery Gentry, was tragically killed in a helicopter crash which took place at approximately 1:00 p.m. today in Medford, New Jersey".

(Radio.com) New information has been surfaced about the crash that killed Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry on Friday afternoon (Sept. 8).

In video of the performance posted on YouTube, Stapleton mashes up the defiant Montgomery Gentry tune, with fans joining in singing, and his own "Nobody to Blame".

Montgomery Gentry had just finished its newest album, which was set to be released in 2018 for their 20th anniversary. He was an active supporter of breast cancer awareness and research.

Gentry strummed his guitar as he shared the song's vocals with bandmate Eddie Montgomery, getting the crowd involved for a rousing performance.

Known for his wide smile, Gentry was personally driven by faith, family and living life to the fullest.

Stapleton was not the only artist to honor Gentry on stage.

His many hobbies included wakeboarding and snow skiing.

A follower of Christ, Gentry faithfully attended Brentwood Baptist Church in Brentwood, Tenn., when he was not on the road. "For it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you". A private family burial will follow. Gentry's family has asked for donations to the T.J. Martell Foundation or the American Red Cross.
