“Crazies Welcome” featured on Montgomery Gentry’s acclaimed album, “Here’s to You,” was written by Brad Warren, Brett Warren, Lance Miller and Jessi Alexander. Filmed at Springwater Superclub and Lounge in Nashville, the oldest bar serving alcohol in Tennessee (and a speak-easy during Prohibition in the 1920s), the video highlights a diverse group of people singing karaoke to “Crazies Welcome.”
“We all got a little crazy in us – and you’re welcome here with me, man. That’s what ‘Crazies Welcome’ is all about,” commented Montgomery. “The ones I came up with in the day, my heroes, the Haggard’s, the Waylon’s and the Willie’s, they done their own stuff, they were characters. Nowadays, you got music and everybody’s playing it, but where are our characters ‘cause those are the ones that stand out. Those are the ones on the juke box.”
With 20 plus charted singles, the Kentucky-born multi-platinum duo has earned CMA, ACM, and GRAMMY awards and nominations with undeniable blue collar anthems like “Hell Yeah,” “My Town,” and “Hillbilly Shoes.” They’ve notched five No. 1 singles, “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Something To Be Proud Of,” “Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.” They were inducted as Grand Ole Opry members in 2009 and were inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2015. Montgomery Gentry’s recent full-length album, “Outskirts (Deluxe),” was released last November 2019.
