Eldredge wasn’t the only country artist to recall a memory with Gentry. Jason Aldean also paid tribute to the 50-year-old and shared one of their early interactions.
“Shocked to hear the news about Troy Gentry today,” he wrote. “When I was coming up as a new artist, he and Eddie were always extremely cool and supportive of me and my career and I will always have nothing but respect for those guys. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.”
He finished the message, writing, “RIP ‘T-Roy.’”
Gentry died shortly after his helicopter crashed in New Jersey on Friday, Sept. 8. The aircraft was experiencing mechanical issues for several minutes before hitting the ground.
