Trace Adkins, Justin Moore, Eddie Montgomery & More to Take Part in 2nd Annual Troy Gentry Foundation Benefit Concert

A star-studded cast of country artists will come together for C’Ya On the Flipside II, a benefit concert on Feb. 5 at the Grand Ole Opry House that will support the Troy Gentry Foundation.

C’Ya On the Flipside II will feature performances by Justin Moore, Trace Adkins, Don McLean, Terri Clark, Mark Wills, Shenandoah, Ricochet, T. Graham Brown, Rhett Akins, Abby Anderson, Jake Hoot, Caroline Jones and Eddie Montgomery. Tracy Lawrence and Storme Warren will co-host the event. Tickets are on sale now. In addition, fans can bid on concert tickets, memorabilia, artwork and more via an online auction.

After Troy Gentry was killed in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8, 2017, his wife, Angie, helped launch the non-profit foundation that aims to provide financial support to cancer research organizations, military families and music education. The concert will support the T.J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, The Journey Home Project, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and music education in Kentucky schools. Last year’s inaugural event helped raise more than $300,000 for various charities.

Troy, a Kentucky native who was 50 at the time of his death, was one half of the country duo Montgomery Gentry. The duo found success with songs such as “My Town,” “If You Ever Stopped Loving Me,” “Something to Be Proud Of,” “Gone,” and “Back When I Knew It All.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
