It has indeed been six years since Troy Gentry's death, as he tragically passed away in a helicopter crash on September 8, 2017. Pilot error and maintenance failure were found to be the cause of the crash. Gentry's longtime friend and bandmate, Eddie Montgomery, was devastated by the loss. Gentry left behind his wife Angie, two children, and countless grieving fans. To mark the anniversary, a video was created highlighting Gentry's most cherished topics of conversation. Montgomery has since continued to honor Gentry's memory by keeping their music alive through tours, a new album, and even his own solo career at the age of 59.
