After being tragically killed in a helicopter crash on Sept. 8, the life of Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry was celebrated at the Grand Ole Opry on Sept. 14.
In addition to performances from Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels, Trace Adkins and more, the service featured a recording of Troy singing a new song, “Better Me,” which was recently recorded for an upcoming Montgomery Gentry album.
After the tragedy, the touching tune takes on a new meaning as Troy croons, “I might cuss and fight, tell a few lies / Break a few rules making promises I can’t keep / But I’ve turned a page on wilder days / I’m writing all this down hoping you’ll see / I ain’t saying I’m perfect, but I’m working on a better me.”
Listen to the new song below.
