Montgomery Gentry has a new musical home. They’ve signed with Average Joe Entertainment after parting ways with Sony Music last year. The multiplatinum duo is excited about the move and plan to release their first single on the label in the spring.

“We couldn’t be happier to be signing with Shannon [Houchins] and Tom [Baldrica] and the guys at Average Joe’s,” Eddie Montgomery said.  “Those guys are cut from the same cloth we are and man, they are so creative.  We can’t wait to get this new project out there to our fans!”

“Eddie and I are really excited about this new partnership with Average Joe’s,” Troy Gentry said. “We love the team they have in place and the passion and excitement that they bring.  We look forward to going in and making a project we’re all proud of.”

The move reunites Montgomery Gentry with Average Joe’s Entertainment president Tom Baldrica, who worked with the duo during his 17 years at Sony. He too is excited about the partnership. “’Hell Yeah,’ Montgomery Gentry is coming to Average Joe’s!” Tom said.  “Their music, attitude, and blue collar work ethic are the perfect fit with our label model, and our staff is excited to hit the ground running with Eddie and Troy.”

Average Joe Entertainment is also  home to artists Colt Ford and Josh Gracin.
