Jubilee Cityfest announces new act

Montgomery, AL - Jubilee CityFest, Alabama's premier family and music festival is excited to announce award winning Country Duo Montgomery Gentry will headline the Colonial Bank/Hyundai Motor Manufacturing of Alabama stage on Friday, May 22, 2009. Jubilee CityFest, one of Alabama's largest music festivals, is scheduled for May 22-23, 2009 in downtown Montgomery.

Montgomery Gentry is composed of Kentucky natives, Gerald Edward (Eddie) Montgomery and Troy Gentry. They recently celebrated their first ever back-to-back No. 1 hits with both No. 1 singles coming from their latest disc, Back When I Knew It All.  The second single from Back When I Knew It All, "Roll With Me," topping the Billboard and Country Aircheck country singles charts at the beginning of December 2008.  This has become the fastest rising single for the country duo to date.

Since joining forces in 1999, Montgomery Gentry have earned five No. 1 singles.  As they celebrate their 10th anniversary, the duo will debut its newest release Tattoos and Scars in April 2009 right before Jubilee CityFest.

When Montgomery Gentry debuted in 1999, their platinum-certified debut album Tattoos & Scars and the single "Lonely and Gone" reached No. 5. They also won the CMA Vocal Duo of the Year honors in 2000. In 2001, their single "She Couldn't Change Me" reached No. 2 on the country charts from their album, Carrying On. The following year My Town was released by the duo and it racked up three more Top 5 hits ("My Town," "Speed" and "Hell Yeah"). In 2004, they secured their first No. 1 single with "If You Ever Stop Loving Me" from You Do Your Thing.
