Troy Gentry from Montgomery Gentry dies in a helicopter crash and Kenny Chesney’s home on St. John was taken out by Hurricane Erma


Troy Gentry from Montgomery Gentry died in a helicopter crash as the pilot tried to make an emergency landing at an airport in Medford, N.J. He was only 50-years-old. The pilot made a distress call due to mechanical issues and said they’d try to hover until firefighters got there but they ended up crashing before that. The pilot died at the scene and Troy died on the way to the hospital. The guys had a show in Medford that night and Eddie Montgomery had been at the airport waiting for him. Dierks Bentley said Troy was one of the ‘give the shirt off his back’ kind of guy in country. Jason Aldean said Troy was very supportive when he was coming up as a new artist. Also Friday, legend Don Williams died. 

Kenny Chesney’s home on St. John was taken out by Hurricane Erma but what survived was a big closet 20 of his friends and 10 dogs were hiding in. Kenny will send his plane in soon, filled with water and dog food and he’ll also do some kind of charity show. You can donate to his new foundation, ‘Love for Love City’ at kennychesney.com. Kenny said he’ll rebuild his home there but not before everyone else there does.
