Average Joes EntertainmentWe’re hearing from Eddie Montgomery for the first time since his musical partner, Troy Gentry, was killed in a helicopter crash in New Jersey earlier this month.

“Our world was turned upside down in an instant and nothing could have prepared us for this,” Eddie writes in a letter accompanying Montgomery Gentry‘s new single, “Better Me.”

“Over the past few months, me and T-Roy have been working on what I think is the best record of our career,” he continues. “In the last few weeks we had been talking about what our first single would be. Then on September 8th, none of that mattered.”

“Better Me” emerged as the obvious choice for Montgomery Gentry’s next single after it made its debut at the close of Troy’s funeral September 14 at the Grand Ole Opry House.

“‘Better Me’ is a song we all loved and Troy sings his a** off on it,” Eddie goes on. “It speaks volumes about his life and who he had become and everyone he touched and how much he loved his family. I am so proud of this song and also to call him my friend, my family, my brother for 30 years.”

“Better Me” is available to stream or download now.

BMLGDanielle Bradbery is busy promoting her new single, “Sway,” and readying her sophomore album, I Don’t Believe We’ve Met, which comes out December 1. But you can bet the season four winner of The Voice will be watching tonight, as the show that thrust her into the national spotlight kicks off its 13th season.

With Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and new coach Jennifer Hudson seated in the famous red chairs, Danielle is expecting the best year of competition yet.

“That’s a powerful set of coaches,” Danielle observes. “ I feel like these contestants are gonna really just be shocked and excited. I would be, I mean, speechless, just to see who’s there and let alone pick who I want as my coach. Either one, I know Blake and Adam’s been there through day one, but oh my gosh, that’s a powerhouse! I would not know who to pick, but they’re gonna learn a lot, I know that.”

Danielle, for the record, was team Blake during her winning season.

This year, Rascal Flatts will be guest advisors for the Shelton camp, while Billy Ray Cyrus will help out his daughter Miley.

You can catch the season 13 premiere of The Voice tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
