"Mr. Montgomery underwent successful robotic surgery for prostate cancer in December," his doctor, Thomas Kirk Slabaugh, Jr., said in a statement. "His cancer was completely excised and he will not require further treatement for his prostate cancer in the future. Mr. Montgomery has benefited greatly from early detection of prostate cancer with PSA screening."

The duo performed Friday night at the Grand Ole Opry to mark their first public appearance since the cancer diagnosis. On Sunday, Montgomery Gentry will depart for an eight-day USO Tour to Seoul, South Korea, and Okinawa, Japan.

Montgomery and partner Troy Gentry released their debut album Tattoos & Scars in 1999. They've notched several No. 1 hits over the years, including "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," "Something to Be Proud Of," "Lucky Man," "Back When I Knew It All" and "Roll with Me."
