Family, friends, and fans of Montgomery Gentry's Troy Gentry held a celebration of his life at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville on Thursday.
Little Big Town opened the service and sang the national anthem, followed by a performance of "My Old Kentucky Home" by Halfway to Hazzard. Trace Adkins sang "Wayfaring Stranger," Elvis impersonator Cody Ray Slaughter performed "Kentucky Rain" -- one of Troy's Favorite songs -- and Charlie Daniels did a moving version of "How Great Thou Art." Vince Gill sang the song Troy first sang to his wife, Angie, "Whenever You Come Around." The ceremony concluded with a recording of "Better Me" from Montgomery Gentry's new unreleased album.
After the service at the Opry friends and family gathered for a private service at Brentwood Baptist Church.
