Country hitmakers Montgomery Gentry return to the recording studio with their first full-length album since 2011. Released in 2015, Folks Like Us finds the duo of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry keeping up with the times, with songs about beer, trucks, and bumpin' club mixes, but the bulk of the album reveals they're still playing the sort of music that made them famous with their tales of good-hearted small-town guys with just a bit of a rowdy streak, set to a solid country-rock beat. Produced by Michael Knox, Folks Like Us includes the songs "We Were Here," "Two Old Friends," "Back on a Dirt Road," "Hillbilly Hippies," the title track, and five others. ~ Mark Deming
