This terrible news comes to us today by way of AllAccess,
A LEXINGTON, KY television station is reporting that a helicopter crash at the FLYING W AIRPORT in MEDFORD, NJ has claimed the life of MONTGOMERY GENTRY singer TROY GENTRY. The accident occured around 12p (ET) TODAY (9/8). The duo’s EDDIE MONTGOMERY was not onboard the helicopter at the time of the accident.
