Bank sues country singer Eddie Montgomery over failed restaurant

Posted: Updated:

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Country music star Eddie Montgomery's steak house may have once been something to be proud of, but now the closed establishment is something causing him legal problems.

Central Bank and Trust Co. of Lexington has sued Montgomery and his ex-wife, Tracy Nunan in Boyle Circuit Court, claiming the couple owes nearly $12.7 million to pay off loans related to the business.

The Advocate-Messenger reported (http://bit.ly/16YD0Cl ) that Montgomery and Nunan personally guaranteed repayment of several loans. Eddie Montgomery's Steak House opened in 2009 and closed in May.

Montgomery was half of the duo Montgomery Gentry, which had a string of hits for Columbia Records' Nashville division between 1999 and 2008, including "Lucky Man" and "Something to Be Proud of."

Neither Montgomery nor Nunan could be reached for comment.
