Gentry's partner, Eddie Montgomery, has been mostly silent in public since Gentry's death, but in a tweet on Wednesday (Nov. 8), Montgomery shares that the duo are set to release their final album, Here's to You, in the near future.
Montgomery says, "Hey Guys – I know it's been a while but it has been a very emotional time, but you will be hearing from soon. Our new music is coming out and I hope you'll give it a listen. Me and T-Roy were very proud of this new cd."
