Montgomery Gentry Set 'You Do Your Thing' CD & DVD Release Multiple Producers Contribute to Fourth Columbia Album



    NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Rebel rousers Eddie Montgomery
 and Troy Gentry -- better known as country music's award-winning duo
 Montgomery Gentry -- will see their fourth Columbia Records album You Do Your
 Thing hit stores on May 18, 2004. A corresponding commercial DVD of the same
 name will be released a month earlier on April 20.
     The first single from You Do Your Thing, the in-your-face "If You Ever
 Stop Loving Me", is the duo's fastest-rising single to date -- already Top 30
 in both R&R and Billboard. The music video features several of their Harley-
 riding buddies from Southern California and is receiving heavy play at both
 CMT and GAC. Billboard opined "This track will surely continue the duo's hot
 streak at country radio and at cash registers."
     In a move unique in country music, Montgomery Gentry drew on the talents
 of Mark Wright, Jeffrey Steele, Rivers Rutherford, Joe Scaife and Blake
 Chancey to individually produce the songs that make up You Do Your Thing.
 Rutherford and Steele, who have both written songs recorded by Montgomery
 Gentry, produced tracks that they wrote for You Do Your Thing.
     "It only makes sense that Jeffrey and Rivers would produce their own
 songs," said Troy. "Who better to produce a song than the guy who had the
 vision and created it in the first place?"
     "We've worked with all these guys over the years, and all of them
 understand Montgomery Gentry music and where we're goin'," added Eddie. "It's
 really cool how it all came together. When you got great songs, great
 producers and great people behind you, it really challenges you to take it to
 the next level."
     "Montgomery Gentry has always been the hardest working band in country
 music," said Sony Music Nashville President John Grady. "This will be the year
 it all pays off for them. They have taken their music to another level with
 this record. I think their entire career is about to go to the moon. I could
 not be more proud of a piece of music than I am of this record."
     The commercial DVD will include six music videos that have captured the
 various facets of Montgomery Gentry along with audio commentary from Eddie and
 Troy on each clip. The DVD will also contain a discography with album
 highlights, a career timeline, exclusive photo scrapbook, web site info and an
 all-access backstage pass with special behind-the-scenes footage shot during
 last year's tour. The package will be available wherever CDs and DVDs are
 sold.
     The guys will hit the road on a headline tour this weekend with a new
 stage and set.
