A livestream of the service can be viewed at Opry.com/Troy-Gentry for those who can't attend the service in person.

Gentry was best known as a member of the award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry, along with his longtime friend Eddie Montgomery.

Gentry was born April 5, 1967 in Lexington, Kentucky and went on to attend both Lexington Community College and the University of Kentucky. The statement added that Montgomery Gentry's induction into the Opry was his "proudest professional achievement".

The band was planning to release an album of new music in 2018 to mark their 20th anniversary as a duo.

A generous man, Gentry supported numerous charitable organizations, including Make-a-Wish Foundation and TJ Martell Foundation, as well as military-related charities such as the USO.

His many hobbies included wakeboarding and snow skiing.

Chris Stapleton paid tribute fellow Kentucky country artist Troy Gentry Friday night playing the Montgomery Gentry hit "Hillbilly Shoes" during his show at Cincinnati's Riverbend. Gentry was also an active supporter of various athletic teams at his daughter Kaylee's school. One of his favorite bible verses was Deuteronomy 31:6, which says, 'Be strong and courageous; don't be terrified or afraid of them.

Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry will be remembered with a public celebration of life Thursday, September 14 at 11 a.m. CT at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

A private interment will follow the service. Gentry's family has asked for donations to the T.J. Martell Foundation or the American Red Cross.
