Does the tense of this article need to be updated since Troy Gentry died today (9-8-17)?

Conflicting Information[edit]

The first sentence in the article indicates these guys are both Kentucky natives, then a few paragraphs into the article indicates they were both born in Florida. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MikeOPFL (talkcontribs) 23:39, 31 October 2012 (UTC)


I updated the discography, so please don't change it back. (talk) 15:56, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Deer Hunt Charge[edit]

paul Gentry of this duo was charged for shooting a deer,but the charges were later dropped when they reliazed they were mixed up with someone else.


I've gone through and reverted some sections that have absolutely no place in the Wiki article. I don't agree with what Mr. Gentry did, but being immature about it doesn't do anything.Doriftu (talk) 06:23, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Will review it in the following days

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):
    Lead is definetely too short; at the moment it is more a discography than a biography lead. Add personal life, their style, their awards, their career. The lead should summarize the whole content.
    Added some more, although I don't see how the existing lead was any worse than the one in, say, Clay Walker or Joe Diffie.
    Much better. Prose is also nice.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    The location is not known?
  7. Overall:
Thanks, I will now pass! ;)

Presumption of Current Status[edit]

I think it's wholly inappropriate to refer to the band as being over, simply because a member has died. The band name was taken from their last names; thus, one shouldn't assume that Eddie Montgomery will end the band they formed, even though his partner has died. The nomenclature wasn't like Brooks & Dunn or Big & Rich. It is best to wait for official confirmation from Montgomery about the status of his band. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:50, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

I don't get your point. The band is a duo consisting of the two guys, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry. Just like Hall & Oates is a duo consisting of Daryl Hall and John Oates. If one dies, the band (duo) no longer exists. Why are duos like Brooks & Dunn or Big & Rich any different than Montgomery Gentry? Now if it were a band consisting of three or more members, and one dies, then your point would be valid. 2605:A000:FFC0:D8:C44F:4D3E:D54B:8E02 (talk) 03:37, 9 September 2017 (UTC)
Brooks & Dunn and Hall & Oates have 'and' between the names implying it is two people with those names. Montgomery Gentry doesn't immediately suggest that the name of the group comes from its performers' names, especially as gentry is a proper noun. The name of the band could refer to a group of people in Montgomery. Another performer(s) could join the band and the name could still be used. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jdallen (talkcontribs) 03:09, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
So you believe the name Montgomery Gentry doesn't represent the last names of its two members, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry? Are you a comedian? 2605:A000:FFC0:D8:C44F:4D3E:D54B:8E02 (talk) 07:40, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

No one is suggesting it doesn't represent the last names of its two members. It also doesn't mean that the death of one member means that the BAND Montgomery Gentry will be over. Until there is confirmation from Eddie Montgomery that the musical group Montgomery Gentry is over, it's extremely presumptuous--and erroneous--to assume that the name has been retired. Montgomery may make a choice to continue on as a legacy to his fallen bandmate, or he may not. The point is to assume that the band is "over" isn't based in any concrete fact; it is speculation based upon opinion, and thus the tense change has no place on Wikipedia until evidence warrants otherwise. FURTHERMORE, it should be noted that Montgomery Gentry's tour dates have yet to be canceled. That may change in the next few days, but as of now, the shows are going on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:01, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Much ado about nothing, here. I agree that it's presumptuous to believe the band is over because of Gentry's death. There's no need to change the band's status at this time, in my opinion. No doubt the Montgomery part of the duo will address that issue in the future. Until then, we have nothing verifiable that the band is done, so we should leave it as being in the present rather than the past. -- ψλ 22:14, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
