In 2104 I had one of my dreams come true performing on the Mid Hudson Civic Center stage. I was the rhythm guitar player and backing vocalist for an artist named "Riley Weston". We had the honor of opening the show for Nashville recording artist's "Montgomery Gentry".
In the green rooms I met, spoke to and took a photo with Troy Gentry who was in a tragic helicopter accident on Sept. 8th, 2017.
I have opened for many major label artist and this guy was by far my favorite person out of all of them. Without hesitation Troy stopped to talk and take a picture with me.
I wish he knew what that meant to me as a songwriter/musician and hope his music stands the tests of time cause he definitely deserves that.
