Montgomery Gentry fans are used to hearing Eddie Montgomery sing the lead vocals on most of the duo's tracks. But for their 2008 single "Roll with Me," Troy Gentry took on the role of lead vocalist, which earned him a great deal of praise from Eddie. 

"I think it's the best performance I've ever heard from my brother over here," Eddie told Country Standard Time in 2008. "Emotionally, you can tell when he sings it, it's from the heart."

Apparently, country music fans agreed with Eddie, since the song ended up taking the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. The song was also a pop crossover hit, peaking at the 33rd spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

In the February 23, 2009 issue of Country Weekly magazine (now Nash Country Weekly), one of the song's co-writers, Tommy Karlas explained that he wrote the song when he couldn't sleep due to insomnia. Later he teamed up with Clint Daniels, who co-wrote the rest of the song along with him. It was then that Tommy decided to add the second verse to the song, after thinking about a high school friend who passed away.

The narrator of the song sings about how he feels like slowing down and taking the time to appreciate the world around him. "So now I'm slowing it down and I'm looking around," he sings, "And I'm lovin this town and I'm doing alright."

As the narrator reflects on a young man who passed away the winter before, he speaks about how precious each moment is, singing, "made me think how we all just have our time."

The music video for "Roll With Me" is a work of art itself, featuring stop motion animation. You can watch the music video below.

With such powerful lyrics and Montgomery Gentry's heartfelt performance of the song, it's really no surprise to us that it resonated so strongly with country fans. 

LYRICS BELOW

Wake up in the morning
Get to living my life
Making sure that Im all that I can be
Went to church on Sunday
There was a moment that came
I swear it was like the Lord spoke right to me

So now I'm slowing it down and I'm looking around
And I'm lovin' this town and I'm doing alright
Aint' worried 'bout nothing cept for the man I wanna be
I'm thinking maybe it's time to be livin' the rhyme
When I'm singing a song about nothing but right
And it'd sure be nice if you would roll with me

Saw a kid last winter only twenty years old
Being laid to rest while his mom stood by his side
Sure was hard to watch those tears roll down her face
Made me think how we all just have our time

So now I'm slowing it down and I'm looking around
And I'm lovin this town and I'm doing alright
Aint' worried 'bout nothing cept for the man I wanna be
I'm thinking maybe it's time to be livin' the rhyme
When I'm singing a song about nothing but right
And it's sure be nice if you would roll with me

Who knows whats up ahead
I think I'd rather not know instead

So now I'm slowing it down and I'm looking around
And I'm lovin this town and I'm doing alright
Aint' worried 'bout nothing cept for the man I wanna be
I'm thinking maybe it's time to be livin' the rhyme
When I'm singing a song about nothing but right
And it's sure be nice if you would roll with me
