One of the most beautiful venues in country music is honoring a legend lost with the announcement of a full-fledged tribute concert and fundraiser.
The Bluestone, a hallmark building filled with elegance and history is a former Baptist Church located in Columbus, Ohio. For years they have been one of the premier venues for country concerts due to the cathedral ceilings and soulful acoustics built right into the 115-year-old building's history.
Montgomery Gentry was scheduled to perform at The Bluestone on September 21st as part of their touring schedule, but following the tragic passing of Troy Gentry on September 8th - the concert was cancelled.
Instead of re-booking another show for that date, The Bluestone took the opportunity to pay tribute to Gentry in a way that not many could and announced a free concert that would take place in his honor and feature a fundraiser to benefit his favorite charity, The TJ Martell Foundation.
"Please join us for a night to show tribute to Troy Gentry," the venue wrote on Facebook. "After much thought and consideration, we have decided to invite some of Troy's closest friends to honor his life with music on a night he would have graced our stage."
The concert will feature several of Gentry's closest friends in the music business, Halfway To Hazard, Ray Scott, and Dillon Carmichael - all of whom will be taking the stage to honor this incredible musician and dear friend.
At the event, which will take place on September 21st, 2017, The Bluestone will be raising money for both The TJ Martell Foundation and The American Red Cross for Hurricane Relief. Attendees will be able to participate in a raffle, an auction, and the venue will be accepting donations at the door with all proceeds being donated in Troy Gentry's honor.
