A star-studded cast of country artists will come together for C’Ya On the Flipside, a benefit concert on Jan. 9 at the Grand Ole Opry House that will support the Troy Gentry Foundation.
After Troy Gentry was killed in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8, 2017, his wife, Angie, helped launch the non-profit foundation that aims to provide financial support to cancer research organizations, military families and music education.
C’Ya On the Flipside will feature performances by Dierks Bentley, Lee Brice, Tracey Lawerence, Colt Ford, Ray Scott, Jimmie Allen, Halfway to Hazard, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Eddie Montgomery, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, Jeffrey Steele and Neil Thrasher. Blake Shelton and Storme Warren will co-host the event. Tickets are on sale now.
The concert will also support 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. Troy, a Kentucky native who was 50 at the time of his death, was one half of the country duo Montgomery Gentry. The duo found success with songs such as “My Town,” “If You Ever Stopped Loving Me,” “Something to Be Proud Of,” “Gone,” and “Back When I Knew It All.”
Troy is survived by his wife, Angie Gentry, and two daughters, Taylor and Kaylee.
