Troy Gentry’s memorial was held yesterday at the Grand Ole Opry. Little Big Town sang "The Star-Spangled Banner"… Halfway To Hazard performed "My Old Kentucky Home"…and Vince Gill encouraged Eddie Montgomery to lean on "this family" at the Opry.
Vince said, “I would encourage Eddie, I hope you’ll lean on this family, it’s a good one. Don’t disappear, come out here and let this family love you, this family has a long history of loss, and I just encourage you to stay within this family.”
The video screens during the funeral showed personal photos from Troy’s life, his family, and his career in Montgomery Gentry. "Bat-Signals" were beamed onto the walls, and that's no disrespect. He LOVED Batman. Our thoughts and prayers are with Troy’s family and friends.
Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott will soon be welcoming two more little girls to her growing family. Hillary took to Instagram yesterday, revealing that the twins she's expecting both girls! The new bundles of joy will join older sister, Eisele, and it appears that the four year old can hardly wait. Hillary writes in the caption, "Eisele is so excited to have her very own living baby dolls." And mom and dad are equally as excited, she says, "Chris and I are beyond grateful that we get to raise a household of little ladies, and can't wait to watch and help them grow into kind, independent, and confident women!"
