Trace Adkins, Justin Moore, Eddie Montgomery & More to Take Part in 2nd Annual Troy Gentry Foundation Benefit Concert

A star-studded cast of country artists will come together for C’Ya On the Flipside II, a benefit concert on Feb. 5 at the Grand Ole Opry House that will support the Troy Gentry Foundation.

C’Ya On the Flipside II will feature performances by Justin Moore, Trace Adkins, Don McLean, Terri Clark, Mark Wills, Shenandoah, Ricochet, T. Graham Brown, Rhett Akins, Abby Anderson, Jake Hoot, Caroline Jones and Eddie Montgomery. Tracy Lawrence and Storme Warren will co-host the event. Tickets are on sale now. In addition, fans can bid on concert tickets, memorabilia, artwork and more via an online auction.

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. The concert will support the T.J. Martell Foundation, Make-A-Wish, The Journey Home Project, Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center, St. Jude Children’s Hospital and music education in Kentucky schools. Last year’s inaugural event helped raise more than $300,000 for various charities.

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.”
