Eddie Montgomery, half of the country superstar duo act, Montgomery Gentry has prostate cancer. The singer is expected to undergo surgery in December to remove the tumor, and hopes to be well enough to perform sometime in January. Montgomery Gentry has also accomplished a major feat by having no less than 15 singles cross over to the BILLBOARD HOT 100 charts as well as even more hit singles on the country charts as well.
Part of Eddie Montgomery’s appeal is that he’s a big and powerful man with an equally powerful and strong voice. He makes such a striking presence onstage when he performs.
Mr. Montgomery certainly has our prayers and best wishes for his quick and speedy recovery. His recording act has proved to be one of the biggest male vocalist crossover acts in country music history.
