Let's go back in time to the late 1990's and the very start of Montgomery Gentry's successful country music career with "Hillbilly Shoes."

Country music duo Montgomery Gentry’s “Hillbilly Shoes” was released in February 1999 as their debut single and the lead-off single for their debut album Tattoos & Scars. Songwriters Bobby Taylor, Mike Geiger, and Woody Mullis penned the tune.

“Hillbilly Shoes” Lyrics 

I was there when the men came, and told us all the news
Father forgive them for they know not what they do
Till they walk a while, a country mile
In my hillbilly shoes
You want to judge me by the whiskey on my breath
You think you know me but you ain’t seen nothing yet
Till you walk a while, a country mile
In my hillbilly shoes
In my hillbilly shoes
You work all day in the muck and the mire
Dance a little jig and a stomp by the fire
Ain’t too much these boots can’t do
Might even kick a little sense into you
Well I’m going up cripple creek going in a run
Going up cripple creek to have a little fun
Law man said they found some tracks
People saw them leavin but they never come back
Oh, you don’t know me, you don’t know, you don’t know you don’t know
Till you walk a while, a country mile
In my hillbilly shoes
In my hillbilly shoes

Rest in Peace, Troy. Share this walk down memory lane with other Montgomery Gentry fans!
