Some People Change is the fifth studio album by the American country music duo Montgomery Gentry. It was released by Columbia Records Nashville on October 24, 2006. Certified gold in the United States, the album produced three singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: the title track (previously cut by Kenny Chesney on his 2004 album When the Sun Goes Down), "Lucky Man", and "What Do Ya Think About That". The title track was a number seven hit on the Hot Country Songs charts, while "Lucky Man" became the duo's third Number One hit, and "What Do Ya Think About That" reached number three.

Sony BMG Nashville chairman Joe Galante thought that the duo and the label "strayed musically from what the base had been. They have an edge to their sound, and I think we got a little too soft."[1]
