After over three years, legendary country duo Montgomery Gentry unveiled their eighth studio album, Folks Like Us, and the music video to the title track is all about blue-collar, hard-working Americans, that are folks like us

Released in June 2015, the album struck the charts high and peaked in the Top 20 on Billboard's US Country chart, and nailing No. 6 on the US Indie chart.  The album is full of great songs and critics have raved about the tracks saying that the songs are "packed with attitude and personality."

Michael McCall goes on with his review saying "they stay focused on small towns, religion, patriotism, and partying on dirt roads." Nowhere is this more true than their title track, "Folks Like Us"

A true American anthem - this single really embodies Montgomery Gentry as a whole. Troy Gentry and Eddie Montgomery reveal the song's purpose and how it stays true to them.

"It's what you might expect to hear out of Montgomery Gentry. It's a song about American society and making ends meet. It's about being patriotic and showing your faith and the love of family. It's one of those blue-collar songs that we've been known for doing for so long."  

Eddie Montgomery echoes that sentiment, saying "We're still who we are at the roots. I reckon, you let it branch out a little bit and you learn. You live and learn, so that's what we've tried to do with this new record."

"There are probably a few more introspective moments on the album, and front-to-back, this might just be our strongest record yet," Gentry added.

LYRICS BELOW

We're scattered out
On rural routes everywhere
From California to
The Carolines

Flag wavin', Jesus prayin'
Mama lovin', don't care
Redneck, white shirt
Blue jean kind

Folks like us
Like to live a little
Honest, simple
Outside, small town
America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us

With Folgers in a Thermos
At the door with a brown bag
Steel toes on the go
With the risin' sun

Even when the wind
Ain't at our backs
We don't quit, won't quit
'Till the job gets done

Folks like us
Like to live a little
Honest, simple
Outside, small town
America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us

Come on, now

We hang out, just a little too much
Hey, the way it is now, ain't the way it was
A whole lot of real and a little less fake
Yeah, I guess that makes

Folks like us
Yeah, folks like us

Folks like us
Like to live a little
Honest, simple
Outside, small town
America
Dream chasin', beer drinkin'
Raise 'em up, if you're thinkin'
This ole' world ain't got enough
Boot wearin', God fearin'
Folks like us
No there just ain't enough
Folks like us
