MONTGOMERY GENTRY GO PLATINUM

Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry are no stranger to parties - and Tuesday the rambunctious duo took a break from touring to celebrate the platinum success of their last album, My Town. Making the party even sweeter was the fact that My Town was platinum even without a No.1 song. "Eddie and I have sold almost 3 million albums," says Troy, "but what's so great is that it doesn't take a No. 1 to sell our music." Eddie adds, "We never set out to have No. 1s , we just wanted to play to people and have longevity." Montgomery Gentry's new album, You Do Your Thing, comes out in May. Also at the party was labelmate Buddy Jewell, who said he was there for one simple reason. "I just wanted to see what a platinum party looks like," joked Buddy.
