It’s been four years since Montgomery Gentry was last in the top ten on the country charts. They’re been busy during that time. A few things have taken up their time on the personal side of life, but they’re still out there working and looking for hits. And I think they might have another one on their hands. Check this one out and get ready to rock.
Folks Like Us – Montgomery Gentry
Things really get rocking right away from the opening of the song. We have screaming guitars and a kick as sound in the background and then Eddie comes in with his classic raspy voice. The Troy comes in to support with a catchy chorus.
It’s all classic Montgomery Gentry. These guys have been doing this on the country charts for 15+ years and they’re still making music that people love. It’s just more difficult these days to get radio play, but I wouldn’t put one over on these guys and their team to get this one into the top ten on the charts.
This is the kind of song that country fans love especially heading into the summer. And I think the radio folks out there are going to like it as well. It’ll be a little challenge. The guys are on Blaster Records now, but those folks seem to work hard and have worked with some other strong artists.
You’ll want to keep an eye on this one.
But what are your thoughts right now? A hit or a miss for Montgomery Gentry?
