Award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry was performing at the Cornstock Concert on the Hill in Garnett, Kansas, when Eddie Montgomery collapsed on stage. According to concert goers who witnessed the incident, medics were on stage within seconds. Several minutes later, Eddie walked off the stage with assistance and entered the ambulance stage right. Troy Gentry carried the band by himself for 4 songs and then Eddie appeared on stage and told the crowd that he hadn't been feeling well and was dehydrated.
Rumors quickly started circulating that Montgomery had suffered a heart attack, but a statement posted to the duo's Twitter feed said otherwise.
There are false reports floating around that Eddie had a heart attack last night. NOT TRUE. He was dehydrated and returned to the stage.— Montgomery Gentry (@mgunderground) September 25, 2016
Eddie took to social media himself earlier today (Sunday, September 25) to prove that he is alive and doing well.
Eddie and Jennifer send their regards from Key West and thanks for all of the prayers and well wishes. And he's drinking plenty of H20! pic.twitter.com/xCJlTZCIHX— Montgomery Gentry (@mgunderground) September 25, 2016
