Montgomery Gentry to headline pregame concert for Kentucky-Auburn

Country music duo Montgomery Gentry will be the headliner for the University of Kentucky football team's next pregame concert.

UK has featured a different musical performer every pregame this season and secured one of country music's most recognizable acts for its Southeastern Conference game against Auburn on Thursday, Oct. 15.

The duo, which features Kentucky natives Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, will take the stage next to the Green Lot adjacent to Gate 1 of Commonwealth Stadium at 4 p.m. Montgomery Gentry, which has had five singles reach No. 1 on Billboard's country-music charts, will play an encore after the Cat Walk at 4:45 p.m.

During the Cat Walk, Dee Jay Silver will supply the music. Dee Jay Silver has been a top touring DJ/remixer/producer for more than 10 years, having played in premier venues in virtually every major market in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Inside the stadium, Marlana VanHoose will sing the national anthem. VanHoose is a 19-year-old Kentucky native who suffers from cerebral palsy, but has an incredible voice that has carried her from singing at UK women's basketball games to performing at baseball's Home Run Derby and the NBA Finals.

Kentucky's game against Auburn is sold out, marking the fourth sellout in five home games in 2015.
