Eddie Montgomery To Release Solo Debut Album

Eddie Montgomery To Release Solo Debut Album

“Ain’t No Closing Me Down” scheduled for release October 29, 2021

“Ain’t No Closing Me Down,” country superstar Eddie Montgomery’s debut solo 12-track album, will be available exclusively at Walmart on October 29 via Average Joes Entertainment. Available for pre-order at Walmart.com, the new album was produced by Grammy-award-winning producer Noah Gordon and award-winning producer, Shannon Houchins. “My Son,” featured on the new album and in a new American Western film, “Old Henry.”

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 Montgomery’s 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 Montgomery 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.”

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.
