Montgomery Gentry is a country music duo, founded in the 1990s, consisting of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry. Eddie Montgomery is the older brother of John Michael Montgomery. All three were in a band called Early Tymz. Eddie and Troy continued to perform after John left to pursue a solo career. The duo went through several name changes before they decided to call themselves Montgomery Gentry. Eddie Montgomery is bald and therefore always wears a hat. Eddie also has a habit of twirling his microphone on stage.
In August of 2006, Gentry was indicted for conspiring to violate the Lacey Act by falsely tagging a tame black bear as being killed in the wild. According to the charges, Gentry shot the bear in an enclosed pen with a bow and arrow, then allegedly arranged for the doctoring of a videotape of the alleged "wild" kill. The crime carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a twenty thousand dollar fine.
