These albums have produced more than 20 chart singles for the duo on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including the number 1 hits "If You Ever Stop Loving Me", "Something to Be Proud Of", "Lucky Man", "Back When I Knew It All" and "Roll with Me". Montgomery Gentry won both the Academy of Country Music Award and the Country Music Award for Duo of the Year in 2000, and they were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009. Their most recent album, Rebels on the Run, was released in October of 2011 under the Average Joe’s Record label.
Bret Michaels brings the Life Rocks Tour 2012 to Indian Ranch on Sunday, September 23 at 2:00PM. Bret Michaels wears multiple hats as a rock star, reality star, spokesperson, businessman, and philanthropist. He first rose to prominence as the front man of the massively successful 80’s rock band Poison, which sold over 30 million records worldwide. The band has charted 10 singles in the Top 40 on Billboard's Hot 100 including the number-one single, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." His solo career has been equally successful: his most recent solo album, "Custom Built," released in July of 2010, topped the charts, reaching #1 on Billboard's Hard Rock list. Michaels has achieved success in the realm of reality TV as well. His "Rock of Love" television series is one of the most successful in VH1's history, and he has also appeared on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” This will be the end of season party to end all parties, a real rock and roll extravaganza with Bret Michaels.
