The Troy Gentry Foundation has been created to continue the late Montgomery Gentry star's legacy! Learn more about the benefit concert here.

The Troy Gentry Foundation will officially kick off with a benefit concert at the Grand Ole Opry House on January 9th. The non-profit organization, formed by Troy‘s widow and friends, honors the late Montgomery Gentry artist’s legacy.

“Together, with some of Troy’s friends, I started The Troy Gentry Foundation,” explained Angie Gentry via All Access. “We were sharing memories together one evening and decided we wanted to do something to keep the spirit of Troy’s generous heart alive and honor his memory. Troy was taken too soon, but we felt his dreams and dedication to helping others needed to continue. He was very passionate about our military and their families, about those in need to provide for their children, cancer research, and the continuation of music education.”

Learn more about the C’Ya on The Flipside benefit concert and the other charities involved here.

So far Blake Shelton, Jon Pardi, Justin Moore, Chris Janson, Rascal Flatts, Dustin Lynch, Neil Thrasher, Jeffrey Steele, Halfway to Hazard, Craig Morgan, and Eddie Montgomery have joined the lineup.

“The mission of The Troy Gentry Foundation is to continue Troy’s personal beliefs: Love God, Love others,” the organization’s official website explains.

Tickets for the event can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

“Where I Come From” Lyrics

Don’t you dare go running down
My little town where I grew up
And I won’t cuss your city lights
If you ain’t ever took a ride around
And cruised right through the heart of my town
Anything you say would be a lie
We may live our lives a little slower
But that don’t mean I wouldn’t be proud to show ya
Where I come from
There’s an old plow boy out turning up dirt
Where I come from
There’s a preacher man in a cowboy shirt
Where I come from
Where a couple boys fight in the parking lot
No, nobody’s gonna call the cops
Where I come from
See that door right there, man I swear
It ain’t never been locked
And I can guarantee that it never will
That old man right there in the rocking chair
At the courthouse square I’ll tell you now
He could buy your fancy car with hundred dollar bills
Don’t let those faded overalls fool ya
He made his millions without one day schoolin
Where I come from
There’s a pickup truck with the tailgate down
Where I come from
The pine trees are singing a song of the south
Where I come from
That little white church is gonna have a crowd yeah
I’m pretty damn proud
Where I come from
Where I come from
There’s a big old moon shining down at night
Where I come from
There’s a man done wrong gonna make it right
Where I come from
There’s an old plow boy out turning up dirt
Where I come from
There’s a preacher man in a cowboy shirt
Where I come from
Where a couple of boys fight in the parking lot no
Ain’t nobody’s gonna call the cops
Yeah, that river runs across that Oakland rock
Where I come from
Where I come from
