Two months ago, Troy Gentry, one half of country duo Montgomery Gentry, died in a helicopter crash. On Wednesday night, he was remembered at the CMA Awards.
In Gentry's honor, Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts performed the foot-stomping anthem "My Town," a Top 5 hit for Montgomery Gentry in 2002. During the performance, Flatts singer Gary LeVox sported a Batman t-shirt, a nod to Gentry's favorite superhero.
They were joined for the second half of the song by Eddie Montgomery, who strode on stage twirling his microphone stand as images of Gentry were shown on the screen behind him.
