The award-winning country music duo of Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry has teamed with the Professional Championship Bullriders tour and will perform a concert at the Alerus Center following the bullriding Saturday night.

Montgomery Gentry, two Kentuckians who broke onto the national country music scene in 1999 with "Hillbilly Shoes," have a long string of hits including: "Something To Be Proud Of," "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," Lucky Man," "Back When I Knew It All," "Roll With Me," "Where I Come From," "My Town" and "Ain't No Law."

"We've done bull riding and rodeo shows our entire careers," Gentry said in a news release about performing with the PCB tour. "Our audiences definitely cross over, and to be on a full-blown tour with these guys really takes it to a new level."

Montgomery Gentry cut its teeth playing in the honky tonks and the two retain their reputation as good time guys. But they're also generous with their time and energy for charitable organizations, and were acknowledged by the Academy of Country Music as the 2010 winners of its Humanitarian Award.
