This expertly written and performed song by the duo of Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery is from their upcoming release, due out in 2015.

“Headlights” is the first single and it hit the charts hard when it came out in Fall of 2014. You can purchase the studio recording here:

Some fun harmonies, a laid back vibe and expert playing take center stage here.

They share, “We love this song, it’s one of our most favorite songs we’ve done in a long time, especially when we play it live. We played the House of Blues down in New Orleans recently did this acoustic version in the green room. It’s fun to strip songs down like that in that kind of setting. It’s so different than our stage show."
