Tyler Hubbard Offers Heartfelt Message to Troy Gentry’s Family

Ten years ago, Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard lost his father in a helicopter crash, that horrifically, he and his family were witnesses to. So when news broke on Friday that Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry had passed away in a similar fashion, Tyler was understandably overcome with emotion and shared a poignant message on his Instagram page to Troy’s friends and family.

“Guys, I just got the terrible news about an amazing guy, Troy Gentry, who passed away this afternoon in a helicopter crash, and my heart breaks,” Tyler recalls in the video. “My heart hurts, and I can’t help but go back to ten years ago when I lost my dad in a tragic helicopter crash as well, an experience that me and my whole family witnessed.

“And I just wanted to say, for everybody out there that’s hurting – I know there’s a lot of people that loved him and a lot of people that are affected by this – that there’s a lot of joy, there’s a lot of peace, there’s a lot of understanding if you lean on the Lord, lean on his words, dig into the Bible.

“And I’m serious, I can’t really explain it. It’s pretty unexplainable, but it’s a crazy joy that God can only give and a crazy amount of peace, so for those that are hurtin’, I encourage you in that and for Troy, I love you.  You’ll be missed, and say hey to my dad up there in heaven, would ya?  Take care, God bless.”

If only we knew the work that God was doing when things happen that we can't understand.
