Country band Montgomery Gentry seems to have publicly displayed divorce details of Eddie Montgomery’s recent divorce in their newest single, “I’ll Keep the Kids”. While the band member claims it’s not a line for line account of his personal life, the song feels awfully personal.
“We’re just painting a picture,” said Montgomery. “So far, a lot of people have told me that the song has helped them through their own divorce. I know it’s helped me a lot to just get that out.”
The song may be helping others during difficult divorce proceedings, but the goal of the song was to portray the effects of divorce on children.
