Country musician Troy Gentry killed in New Jersey helicopter crash

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Updated: Friday, September 8, 2017, 4:30 PM


Country music singer Troy Gentry has died after a helicopter crashed before a show in southern New Jersey

"It is with great sadness that we confirm Troy Gentry, half of the popular country duo Montgomery Gentry, was tragically killed in a helicopter crash which took place at approximately 1:00pm today in Medford, New Jersey," the band posted on Twitter Friday afternoon.

It was not immediately known what caused the crash that led to the 50-year-old's death.

The Federal Aviation Administration told the Daily News that the helicopter crashed in a wooded area near the Flying W Airport, and the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

No severe weather was forecast for Medford on Friday.

Gentry and his musical partner Eddie Montgomery formed their group in the late 1990s, and have repeatedly been nominated for awards by the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music after hits such as “My Town.”

Montgomery Gentry’s concert at the Flying W Airport was cancelled about an hour after the crash, before news of Gentry’s death broke.

Montgomery was not on the helicopter, according to WLEX in Gentry's hometown of Lexington, Ky.

Others in the music world expressed their condolences to Gentry's loved ones.

"We are absolutely heartbroken over the passing of #Opry Member Troy Gentry. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends," the Grand Ole Opry, a country institution, posted on Twitter.

"So sad to hear the news of Troy Gentry. My prayers are with his family and friends," Sheryl Crow wrote.
