Eddie Montgomery is going on tour in 2018 to promote the new Montgomery Gentry album recorded before partner Troy Gentry died in a helicopter crash in September. He'll still tour under the name Montgomery Gentry.

The tour will start in January, Rolling Stone reported, and will mark 20 years since Montgomery Gentry was formed. The new album, “Here’s to You,” will release Feb. 2. An option to donate to the T.J. Martell Foundation in Gentry’s honor will be included with purchase.

The lead single, “Better Me,” is sung by Gentry, Rolling Stone reported. 

Gentry died in Medford, New Jersey, during a “spur of the moment” helicopter ride prior to a planned performance on Sept. 8. The pilot also died in the crash, which was caused by mechanical failure. 

“It was a horrific day; my world changed as much as the band did,” Montgomery told People in a November interview. “It’s something that you never get over. It’s going to be in my mind and my soul for the rest of my life.”

“I’m anxious to get back out on the road and play some new music for our friends and fans,” Montgomery said in a news release about the tour.

The 25-date tour will begin in South Dakota and wind toward the East Coast before ending up in California in September. 

Most fans were happy to hear about the band’s return to the stage, with some still grieving Gentry’s loss.
