Montgomery Gentry's biggest hit is "Something to Be Proud Of" -- which topped the country music charts in 2005. They also had hits with "If You Ever Stop Loving Me" and "My Town."

The group was on tour, and they were scheduled to perform a concert Friday night at Flying W Airport and Resort.

It's unclear what caused the crash. Investigators are on the scene. The news was reported on the duo's Twitter account.
