Montgomery Gentry released the audio of their latest, and probably last, single. “Better Me” is a song about faith and personal growth, a promise to both yourself and others to become better than you were the day before.

In the wake of the tragic death of Troy Gentry, the song takes on on a greater meaning by defining the way Gentry sought to live his life.

I’m getting older

Finding myself and God getting a little bit closer
And sober

I’m a little less reckless
Little less wildcard
Breaking hearts
Kinda senseless
Yeah I’m coming around

I might cuss and fight
Tell lies
Break a few rules
Making promises I can’t keep
But I’ve turned the page on wilder days
I’m writing all this down
Hoping you’ll see
I ain’t saying I’m perfect
but I’m working on a better me

They say I’m sorry
Sometimes is the hardest part to tell somebody
Well baby I’m sorry
Yeah I’ve been praying
Coming from me that might sound a little bit crazy
But I swear I’m changing

I might cuss and fight
Tell lies
Break a few rules
Making promises I can’t keep
But I’ve turned the page on wilder days
I’m writing all this down
Hoping you’ll see
I ain’t saying I’m perfect
but I’m working on a better me

Didn’t want to call you up
Didn’t want to just stop by
Wanted to take my time and make sure I got every word right

I still cuss and fight
Tell lies
Break a few rules
Making promises I can’t keep
But I’ve turned the page on wilder days
I’m writing all this down
Hoping you’ll see
I ain’t saying I’m perfect
but I’m working on a better me
