“Ain’t No Closing Me Down,” Eddie Montgomery’s debut solo 12-track album, will be available at Walmart on October 29 via Average Joes Entertainment. The new album was produced by Grammy-award-winning producer Noah Gordon and award-winning producer, Shannon Houchins. “My Son,” is featured on the new album and in a new American Western film, “Old Henry.”
Montgomery Gentry’s sound is at the heart and soul of Eddie Montgomery’s album. The Wild Bunch, Montgomery Gentry’s band for the past 20 years, played on the recording sessions for the new album and provides both a tribute to Montgomery’s late partner, Troy Gentry, as well as a sonic bridge to carry out his legacy well into the future.
“Troy is with me and will always be with me. He helped me write this album,” remarked Montgomery who wrote on eight of the 12 tracks. “I got together with some of my best songwriting buddies and we wrote about life – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the party on the weekends.”
Highlights on the new album also include “Higher,” a duet with country royalty Tanya Tucker; “She Just Loves Me,” a love song to his wife – the first love song Montgomery has ever written; and “Ain’t She Beautiful,” an incredible ballad co-written by nephew Walker Montgomery.
