(AP) - A Kentucky restaurant run by Eddie Montgomery is being sold off.

The auction sale of Eddie Montgomery's Steakhouse in Harrodsburg is set for January - and the proceeds will go toward wiping out $12.7 million in defaulted loans. Central Bank & Trust of Lexington won a judgment against the eatery, forcing the sell-off.

Montgomery is half of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry, which had a string of hits between 1999 and 2008. The restaurant opened in late 2009 but closed in early May.
