* Montgomery Gentry did this twice: Eddie Montgomery sings "A few close friends, Charlie, Troy, and me" in "All Night Long", a duet with Charlie Daniels, and in "My Town", he sings "Maybe later on, me and ol' T-Roy will show you 'round our town". "Troy" or "T-Roy" obviously refers to Troy Gentry, the other half of the duo.
