The show must go on and now we know it will. Montgomery Gentry‘s Eddie Montgomery will kick off a new tour next year, his first without recently passed Troy Gentry, who died in a helicopter crash in September.

The Here’s to You Tour gets underway January 19th in South Dakota, 20 years to the day after Eddie and Troy formed their award-winning duo. The tour takes its name from a new album that will be released February 2nd.

Eddie only recently discussed Troy’s death publicly. “It was a horrific day,” he told People in November. “My world changed as much as the band did. It’s something that you never get over. It’s going to be in my mind and my soul for the rest of my life.”
