Montgomery Gentry Respond To Claims They Started 'Bro Country'


Montgomery Gentry have been credited as pioneers of the current trend of slick male front men in country known as "bro country" and have opened up on the trend with Rolling Stone Country. In the interview the pair say they're totally fine if people want to say they started the trend.

"We go around to a lot of radio buddies and they're like, 'Y'all were actually the start of bro country,'" says Eddie Montgomery.

"And we are like, 'I don't know about that.' We grew up listening to Hank Jr., Charlie Daniels and all that stuff. But if they want to say we started it, then that's fine with us."

Gentry adds, "We always sang songs about our faith, our family, the military, the hardworking folks out there that make this world go 'round. And that has been the winning formula throughout our career, and we did the same thing on [Folks Like Us] . . . We try to continue to do that but musically try to freshen it up, and stay relevant to what's being played on the radio today."
