Content[edit]

Back When I Knew It All was produced by Blake Chancey. The album's first release to country radio was its title track, co-written by Trent Willmon. In mid-2008, this song became Montgomery Gentry's fourth Number One hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Following it was "Roll with Me", which also topped Hot Country Songs. "One in Every Crowd" is the album's third single, released in early 2009. This song and "Now You're Talkin'" were co-written by Ira Dean, formerly bass guitarist in the group Trick Pony. "Now You're Talkin'" and "Long Line of Losers" (the fourth single) were previously recorded by Kevin Fowler on his 2007 album Bring It On, and "The Big Revival" was previously recorded by John Anderson on his 2000 album Nobody's Got It All, which Chancey also produced.
