June 14 will be a bittersweet day for country music fans: Montgomery-Gentry will release an EP of seven new songs that will contain basically the last vocal tracks Troy Gentry ever laid down before he was tragically killed in a helicopter crash in 2017.

The EP, called Outskirts, also features special guests, including one from the late, legendary Merle Haggard, and, on a song called King of The World, rock guitar virtuoso Steve Vai.

Some of the tracks may have been intended to be part of another album (their last, Here’s To You, was released just a week after Gentry’s passing). According to TheBoot.com, others were outtakes of songs that initially weren’t being considered for issue.

Next to Brooks and Dunn, Montgomery-Gentry were country music’s power duo for years, recording a string of hits from 1999 to 2012, including “Lucky Man”, “Gone” and “My Town”. Gentry and a pilot died when a helicopter they were riding to a concert in crashed in Medford, New Jersey on Sept 8th, 2017.
