Eddie Montgomery Recounts Day of Musician Troy Gentry’s Helicopter Crash

On September 8, mere hours before country duo Montgomery Gentry was set to play a concert at an airport and resort in New Jersey, musician Troy Gentry boarded a helicopter for a pre-show joyride. Within minutes, disaster struck as engine problems crippled the two-seater. It tumbled out of the sky and landed in a wooded area just off the runway. The pilot, James Evan Robinson, was killed on impact. Gentry was transported to a nearby hospital, where he passed away with Eddie Montgomery by his side. Montgomery recently spoke out about his late partner, who was eulogized and memorialized at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry shortly after his death. He spoke of the difficulties of coping with his friend’s untimely death, the difficult decisions they’ve had in the past about what to do if one member of the duo passed away and shared memories of their 20-year friendship. “Nashville didn’t put…

Failure to Yield: Nashville’s Dangerous Intersections

Are pedestrians in danger walking downtown due to drivers failing to yield? According to pedestrians who frequent Demonbreun Street, the answer is yes. Resident Bradley Walker says that he is nearly killed every day trying to cross the street, whether it’s day or night. Another resident, Nathan Pierce, says that to cross, you essentially have to run out into moving traffic. Another resident, Julia Rules, compared the crosswalk to the arcade game “Frogger.” While pedestrians have the right of way at intersections and driveways under Tennessee law, this does not always prevent accidents.
