Montgomery Gentry will headline Hits for the Homeless, a benefit concert on May 9, at the Factory at Franklin/Jamison Hall in Franklin, Tenn.

In addition to the country duo's intimate acoustic performance, the evening will include dinner and a silent auction. All proceeds raised from the evening will go directly to Layman Lessons, which supplies bottled water canteens, survival rescue blankets and food for the local homeless. Tickets are $60 per person or $100 per couple and are available by phone at 1-800-514-3849 or online via

“I feel so fortunate to have Eddie and Troy sign on for this event,” Layman Lessons founder Louie Johnston, Jr. says in a press release. “It is so important to spread the word about Layman Lessons and raise money for a great cause in Middle Tennessee.”

Layman Lessons has served people with addictions, homelessness and mental illness in the local community for 30 years. It is a cause important to the duo, as last year Eddie Montgomery's son, Hunter, died of an overdose. His ex-wife opened up about the loss of their 19-year-old son in the hopes that their family's story might help others.

Montgomery Gentry are also set to perform at WE Fest in Minnesota in August.
