Troy Gentry’s Promise to his daughter is kept

Before he died, singer Troy Gentry promised his youngest daughter that he’d take her to her first awards show this year.
While he couldn’t make it happen himself, his widow made sure he fulfilled that promise. Gentry’s widow, Angie, and 15-year-old daughter, Kaylee, were at the CMA Awards. Cameras showed Angie crying as Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, and Gentry’s partner Eddie Montgomery sang “My Town” as images of the late Gentry appeared onscreen behind them.
