Listen to Montgomery Gentry’s New Song, ‘Better Me’

Subscribe to Big Frog 104 on

Montgomery Gentry fans can now listen to “Better Me,” the song that closed singer Troy Gentry’s public memorial on Thursday (Sept. 14). The duo have released the song digitally.

“Better Me” is the first taste of a new album originally slated for 2018 on Average Joes Entertainment. It’s not clear if or how Gentry’s death will affect plans to release new music. The song finds the 50-year-old singing about wanting to become a better man, a theme that was heavy during a 90-minute-long celebration of his life.

“I might cuss and fight, tell a few lies / Break a few rules making promises I can’t keep / But I’ve turned a page on wilder days / I’m writing all this down hoping you’ll see / I ain’t saying I’m perfect, but I’m working on a better me,” Montgomery Gentry singer at the chorus of “Better Me.”

While poignant in the wake of Gentry’s tragic death in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8, the song stays true to what Montgomery Gentry have delivered over a two-decade career. They’ve always mixed tender ballads between more boisterous country-rock hits. “Lucky Man” from 2007 is one example of this emotion, but “Better Me” is even more reflective.

“I didn’t wanna call you up / Didn’t wanna just stop by / Wanted to take my time and make sure i got every word right,” they add at the bridge.

A private funeral followed the celebration of Gentry’s life at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. While his closest friends spoke, singers like Vince Gill, Trace Adkins and Charlie Daniels paid tribute to the Grand Ole Opry member in song.
