After keeping out of the public eye for two months following Troy Gentry's death, Eddie Montgomery joined Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts onstage. Watch here!

The 2017 CMA Awards was packed full of emotional moments and tributes. While Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts performed the Montgomery Gentry hit “My Town” in honor of the late Troy Gentry, they were joined by a very special guest— Eddie Montgomery.

Watch the audience go wild when Eddie takes the spotlight below!

Goodness, what a moment to remember. During the tribute, the camera panned to Troy’s wife, Angie, and their 15-year-old daughter Kaylee in the audience. Obviously, this was a very emotional moment for Troy’s loved ones.

Let’s take a look back at the duo’s official “My Town” music video, which debuted in 2002.

“My Town” Lyrics

There’s a for-sale sign on a big ol rusty tractor
You can’t miss it it’s the first thing that you see
Just up the road a pale blue water tower
With I love ginny painted in bright green
Hey that’s my uncle bill there by the courthouse
He’ll be lowering the flag when the sun goes down
And this is my town

Nah na nah nah nah

Yea this is my town

Nah na nah nah nah

Hey where I was born
Where I was raised
Where I keep all my yesterdays
Where I ran off cause I got mad
And I came to blows with my old man
Where I came back to settle down
This is where they’ll put me in the ground
This is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
Yea this is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
This is my town

There ain’t much going on here since they closed the mill
The whistle still blows everyday at noon
A bunch of us still go down to the diner
Wonder if that interstates still comin’ through
Come the Sunday morning service at the church of christ
There ain’t an empty seat to be found
And this is my town

Nah na nah nah nah

Yea this is my town

Nah na nah nah nah

Hey where I was born
Where I was raised
Where I keep all my yesterdays
Where I ran off cause I got mad
And I came to blows with my old man
Where I came back to settle down
This is where they’ll put me in the ground
This is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
Yea this is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
This is my town

Well I bought and painted up that rusty tractor
You can’t miss it its sitting right there in our yard
The county came and took that water tower
And that’s Ginny with a baby in the car
We’re off to Sunday service at the church of Christ
And if we want a seat we better leave right now
And maybe later me and ol t-roy will show you around
Our town

Nah na nah nah nah

Yea this is my town

Nah na nah nah nah

Hey where I was born
Where I was raised
Where I keep all my yesterdays
Where I ran off cause I got mad
And I came to blows with my old man
Where I came back to settle down
This is where they’ll put me in the ground
This is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
Yea this is my town
Nah na nah nah nah
This is my town
