Written by Warren Ellison on September 14, 2017
The Grand Ole Opry will be opening its doors for a memorial service honoring Troy Gentry’s life, and fans are invited to attend. The ceremony will be held today at 11 a.m. [CT] at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. The service will also be live-streamed for those unable to be there in person. Prior to the stream, The Opry has released a video of Montgomery Gentry’s final Opry performance. The last time the singers played the legendary venue was July 1, 2017. The video shows them performing one of their biggest hits, “Where I Come From.” Gentry died on September 8th in a helicopter crash on his way to a show in New Jersey. Country stars Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Blake Shelton, Lee Brice and Old Dominion honored the man they call friend onstage in the days following the loss to the genre.
