Here is the latest press release for all those fans of Montgomery Gentry. I have to admit I could almost care less if it wasn’t for George Takei being on. Fans of Howard Stern know why. Sorry, this is a press release for Montgomery Gentry–didn’t mean to get off on a tangent.
Columbia Nashville’s Montgomery Gentry will make an appearance on the premiere episode of “Secret Talents Of The Stars” airing Tuesday, April 8 (10:00-11:00pm ET/tape delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. The award-winning duo joins the show to coach former “Star Trek” star, George Takei, as he preps for his country crooning debut.
“Man, how cool to be rockin’ with Mr. Sulu. I’m such a Trekkie,” admits Eddie Montgomery. “Beam us up to the Semi-Finals.”
With 3 Platinum and 2 Gold discs, 11 Top 5 singles, including their smash, “What Do Ya Think About That,” and a legacy of all-out party-atmosphere concerts, Montgomery Gentry has plenty of country wisdom to share. Their latest single, “Back When I Knew It All,” is the fastest rising for the duo to date and already a Top 20 hit. The record is from their new disc, titled Back When I Knew It All, to be released June 10. Montgomery Gentry will be back out on the road this year with tour dates to be announced soon.

Hosted by John O’Hurley (“Seinfeld,” “Dancing With the Stars,” “Family Feud”), each week celebrities will compete in a tournament-structured format to determine who has the BEST unknown talent. Each performer of “Secret Talents Of The Stars” will fulfill his/her dream by practicing, and then performing live, many supported by a headline production troupe. Each performance will be critiqued by legendary entertainer Debbie Reynolds, Grammy-nominated singer Brian McKnight, and Emmy-nominated television and film producer Gavin Polone — but it’s the viewers who get to vote for the celebrity that impresses them the most. Each week, the “Viewer Vote” will determine which celebrities move on in the competition, and who will go home.
