Oftentimes, we look back at the years that have passed, and we feel like we’ve accomplished nothing. Can this be because we’ve been picturing a dream larger than life, that those achievements we’ve been making surpass our sight?  Indeed, time flies so fast, and we sometimes lose track. What matters the most, however, is that we get to enjoy life with the little things it offers. Take time to tap your back for those worthwhile deeds you’ve done, whether they are small or big. Sure thing, you’ve got something to be proud of.

Something to Be Proud Of

Country duo Montgomery Gentry talks about a father and son conversation about achievements in life on their single, “Something to be Proud Of.” The two men in the song’s story line compare their experiences – the one being a father and the older man being a soldier during the Desert Storm Operation. The message of the song highlights that we’ve got something to be proud of, for as long as we live our lives righteously.

“Something to be Proud Of” is from the country duo’s album, You Do Your Own Thing, released in May 2005. On October 5 of the same year, the song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs. Also, the song has sold more than half a million copies in the United States.

Montgomery Gentry painted themselves as rowdy redneck rebels who still held on small-town values with their kind of music that evoked the sound and spirit of Southern rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and Marshall Tucker Band. Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, both from Kentucky, started performing as part of two different bands with Eddie’s brother, John Michael Montgomery.

All in all, the duo released six studio albums for Columbia Records’ Nashville Division. Aside from their tours and concerts, they also collaborated with Charlie Daniels, Five for Fighting, Toby Keith, and The Allman Brothers Band.

For the record, Montgomery Gentry won American Music Awards’ Favorite new Artist for Country category in 1999. In 2000, they won the award for ACM’s Top New Vocal Duo and CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year.

Gentry died off a helicopter crash in Medford, New Jersey, on September 8, 2017. At present, Montgomery continues to tour under the Montgomery Gentry name.

Here’s Montgomery Gentry’s song that reminds you, you’ve got “Something to be Proud Of.”
