Montgomery Gentry Share ‘Folks Like Us’ Music Video
The video, which shows people enjoying everyday life in the United States while the duo sings outside by a campfire, was directed by Stephen Shepherd and shot in Springfield, Tenn., just outside of Nashville. The clip is indicative of the single itself, which was intended to remind fans of the classic Montgomery Gentry sounds they have grown to love.
“It’s what you might expect to hear out of Montgomery Gentry,” Troy Gentry says of their latest tune. “It’s a song about American society and making ends meet. It’s about being patriotic and showing your faith and the love of family. It’s one of those blue-collar songs that we’ve been known for doing for so long.”
Folks Like Us will be Montgomery Gentry's eighth studio album, their first released on Blaster Records.
“Signing with these guys was a no brainer for us when we saw the team they have to put around us," Gentry says of their new label. "It’s a great bunch of people that we look forward to working with.”
In an industry where artists continue to evolve to chase the latest trends, Montgomery Gentry say their music will remain consistent.
“Our fan base and radio listeners out there recognize when our music comes on the radio wherever they may hear our music. I think it’s very identifiable, and it’s what has made us unique and kept us in the game for as long as we’ve been around,” Gentry explains. “We’re just a little bit slightly different of what everybody else is doing."
Folks Like Us will be available on June 9. It is available for pre-order on iTunes.
