New Single “So Called Life” Shipped to Radio
Nashville, TN (April 23, 2012) — Montgomery Gentry’s music video for their Top 10 radio smash, “Where I Come From,” has been nominated in the “Duo of the Year” category for the upcoming 2012 CMT Music Awards. Voting begins today, April 23, on CMT.com.
The powerful music video, shot from a deployed soldier’s viewpoint, is one of the most intense, influential videos ever done by the duo and they are proud the video has been recognized by their peers. “This is awesome! This song has had a lot of meaning to me and T-Roy and it is an honor to be nominated,” says Eddie Montgomery. “We’re just so proud of all of our military heroes and this was a way of paying tribute.”
Troy Gentry adds, “Its always exciting when something you are extremely proud of is recognized by peers and friends. We are so thankful for the amazing response this song has received. Eddie and I have always sang songs that are close to our hearts and this nomination for such a powerful video makes us proud.”
Directed by Potsy Ponciroli and produced by Chris Conner from Team Genius Productions, the video was shot in a California desert and a rock quarry in Nashville, TN. Working closely with the video treatment, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry wanted to honor the troops and the towns “where they come from.” The video opens with a battlefield scene with a wounded soldier laying on the ground. While his fellow soldiers try to rescue him, he is having flashbacks and memories of his beloved hometown.
