ARLINGTON, VA (SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT) - Troops in the Persian Gulf Region and Germany will be treated to performances by country music duo Montgomery Gentry on a USO tour this month. The trip, co-sponsored by Installation Management Agency-Europe's Morale Welfare and Recreation office and United States Army Europe, will bring Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry to the front lines of combat activities where they will perform shows and 'meet and greet' service men and women.

The pair's latest release is the greatest hits collection entitled 'Something to Be Proud of: The Best of 1999-2005.' The title track quickly climbed the charts and earned the No 1 spot on both Billboard and the R&R country charts. The second single, 'She Don't Tell Me To,' currently sits at No 10 on the same charts.

Before becoming one of today's most popular country acts, the pair played in several bands delighting honky-tonk audiences in and around Lexington, Ky. In 1999, the duo released their debut album 'Tattoos & Scars.' They scored immediate hits with 'Hillbilly Shoes,' 'Lonely and Gone' and 'Daddy Won't Sell the Farm.' The success of their first album led them to being crowned CMA's 'Vocal Duo of the Year' and the Academy of Country Music's 'Top New Vocal Group or Duo' in 2000. Over the next few years, the duo released three more successful albums and performed for more than one million fans. They also enjoyed a string of radio hits including, 'She Couldn't Change Me,' 'My Town,' 'Speed,' 'If You Ever Stop Loving Me' and 'Gone.'

For more than six decades, country music performers have been touring with the USO. Legends such as Gene Autry, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Roy Acuff, Loretta Lynn, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans are just a few of the entertainers who have taken a bow for the USO. Recent years have brought superstars Toby Keith, Lonestar, Reba McEntire, Charlie Daniels, Lee Ann Womack, Diamond Rio and Wynonna Judd to duty stations around the globe to perform for military personnel.
