Nashville, Tennessee (October 11, 2018) – Country Star Troy Gentry’s lifelong mission to “Love God, Love Others,” will continue with the formation of The Troy Gentry Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization founded by Troy Gentry’s wife, Angie Gentry. A star-studded concert to benefit The Troy Gentry Foundation, the Opry Trust Fund, T. J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, The Journey Home project and scholarships and instruments for music education in Kentucky schools is set for January 9, 2019, at the Grand Ole Opry House. Hosted by country superstar Blake Shelton and Storme Warren of SiriusXM’s The Highway, tickets are available via www.thetroygentryfoundation.orgwww.ticketmaster.com, and www.Opry.com.

The initial line up for the all-star concert event includes Jimmie Allen, Halfway to Hazard, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Eddie Montgomery, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, Jeffrey Steele, and Neil Thrasher, with more to be announced.

The Troy Gentry Foundation’s inaugural fundraising event, The Annual Tin Roof 2 Tin Cup Golf Tournament, was held October 8, 2018, in Nashville, Tennessee and raised over $100,000. Presented by the Duff Coal Family Fund, the event featured a concert by Halfway to Hazard & Friends, and was hosted by MC, co-host of SiriusXM’s The Highway.

Commenting on the newly formed foundation, Troy Gentry’s widow, Angie Gentry, stated, “Together, with some of Troy’s friends, I started The Troy Gentry Foundation. We were sharing memories together one evening and decided we wanted to do something to keep the spirit of Troy’s generous heart alive and honor his memory. Troy was taken too soon, but we felt his dreams and dedication to helping others needed to continue. He was very passionate about our military and their families, about those in need to provide for their children, cancer research and the continuation of music education.”

The foundation will provide financial support to organizations that aid in cancer research, assist military families in need and help provide music education to future generations. For more information, visit www.thetroygentryfoundation.org.

Troy Gentry, one-half of the superstar country duo, Montgomery Gentry, passed away tragically last year. The duo has a long history of giving back to those in need by supporting such organizations as T.J. Martell, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and others. Montgomery Gentry were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry 2009.
