The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum recently host its annual induction ceremony.
This year, Montgomery Gentry was presented the Kentucky Entertainers of the Year award. The duo was not able to be on hand to accept in person. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are on the road touring but were able to tape their reaction to be played back at the ceremony.
"This is unbelievable!" said Montgomery. "I just wish my Dad could be here to witness this - what a special honor. We are just country boys doing what we love to do - and we're proud to say we're from Kentucky any chance we get."
Added Gentry, "It is such an honor to be recognized as entertainers, especially from our home state. We started out playing the honky-tonks around Lexington and still try to get back there as much as we can - that's our roots."
