Montgomery Gentry teams with Cracker Barrel on CD
Monday, May 18, 2009
– Montgomery Gentry are joining with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and the Wounded Warrior Project on their newest CD, "For Our Heroes," out May 25." This 12-song CD features familiar hits like Something To Be Proud Ofand My Town. The set includes a new song, One Of Those Days plus four songs that have received only limited release previously.
The CD will be available only at Cracker Barrel, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each CD will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
"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."
"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," said Montgomery Gentry in a statement.
From May 18-31, Cracker Barrel will double the donation to Wounded Warrior Project for every CD that is sold. T-shirts featuring the Wounded Warrior Project's logo of a soldier carrying a wounded compatriot will also be on sale at all Cracker Barrel locations beginning May 25th. A portion of these sales will also be donated 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.

Where once Garth Brooks was criticized for not being country enough, today we have hip hop artists making cameos and artists like Sam Hunt topping the country charts with EDM songs. With no release since 2011's "Rebels on the Run," we see Montgomery Gentry return to a radically different country music scene than the one they were a part of at the turn of the century. Bro country has enjoyed a large amount of success in recent years, and it is arguable that this duo is one of the ...
