Exclusive From Cracker Barrel New Montgomery Gentry Album 'For Our Heroes,' Goes On Sale Today

LEBANON, Tenn. (Top40 Charts/ Cracker Barrel) - The newest Montgomery Gentry CD, For Our Heroes, goes on sale today exclusively at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations, and your purchase of this special CD will provide funding for the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.

This 12-song CD features familiar hits like "Something To Be Proud Of" and "My Town." It also includes an exclusive new song, "One Of Those Days," as well as four songs that have received only limited release previously. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry say they were pleased to work on this CD with Cracker Barrel because "we think it's important to support the soldiers, the men and women who fight for us every day so that we can live in the freedom of this great country, the United States of America."

The way this CD supports America's wounded soldiers is that Cracker Barrel will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each CD to the Wounded Warrior Project, helping them to ensure this generation of wounded is the most successful and well-adjusted in our nation's history. Cracker Barrel is also selling T-shirts featuring the Wounded Warrior Project's logo of a soldier carrying a wounded compatriot. These go on sale today at all Cracker Barrel locations and a portion of these sales will also be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. In fact, from today through May 31st, Cracker Barrel will double the donation to Wounded Warrior Project for every CD and T-shirt that is sold.

As part of this CD release, you can sign up for the Cracker Barrel sweepstakes to win some great prizes, including the Grand Prize of a trip for two to see Montgomery Gentry on Kenny Chesney's Sun City Carnival Tour in Indianapolis, IN on September 19th. That prize includes two roundtrip airline tickets, two nights hotel stay and $200 in spending money. The sweepstakes also features three First Prizes of Copley guitars autographed by Montgomery Gentry. Enter the contest at crackerbarrel.com.

"Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are great artists to work with on this exclusive CD project," says Cracker Barrel's Vice President of Marketing Peter Keiser. "They have for a long time demonstrated their support of and appreciation for our country's service people. That concern is aligned with Cracker Barrel's multi-year support of the Wounded Warrior Project." Keiser added that this CD recognizes that many of the popular restaurant concept's guests are Montgomery Gentry fans who will be excited about this opportunity to enjoy this exclusive music project while supporting the efforts of the Wounded Warrior Project.

For Our Heroes is the latest project in an impressive collection of exclusive music available only at Cracker Barrel. It follows March's release of Dolly Parton's Collectors' Edition of Backwoods Barbie and a number of exclusive releases in 2008 -- November's release of Bill Gaither's Homecoming Hymns, the August release of Kenny Rogers: 50 Years, the July release of Ricky Skaggs' The High Notes and the April release of Aaron Tippin's He Believed. Over the last few years, Cracker Barrel has released exclusive CDs featuring Alison Krauss & Union Station, Josh Turner, Amy Grant, Sara Evans, and Charlie Daniels.
