    I was going to see them next Friday. The show was postponed after Montgomery lost his son last year.

    My mom is a big country fan, and she loves Montgomery Gentry. She's so sad to hear this. R.I.P.

    ^ These guys were really good and put on a good show. Sad he was killed right before their show. Very tragic all around.

    This is the asshole that killed a tame bear in a canned hunt. Fuck him. I used to like them before that but now I'm just thinking what a bitch karma is.

    I remember the bear story, but had no idea this was the guy.

    Let's just call it Cubby's revenge, shall we?
