Montgomery has had more than 30 singles on the Billboard country chart throughout his career. Seven of them hit number one, including “I Swear” and “I Can Love You Like That.” In his post about the accident, the star thanked the Tennessee Highway Patrol and first responders for their “quick response.” He said he would be taking some time to heal but has since confirmed he intends to perform at the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival in Georgia on October 15.
The singer is the brother of Eddie Montgomery, who was half of the iconic band, Montgomery Gentry. Saturday’s accident occurred just two days after the fifth anniversary of Troy Gentry’s death in a helicopter crash that occurred in Medford, New Jersey.
