Back When I Knew It All is the sixth studio album by the American country music duo Montgomery Gentry. It was released by Columbia Records Nashville on June 10, 2008 (see 2008 in country music). The album's lead-off single, also its title track, became their fourth Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts in July 2008, as did "Roll with Me", the second single, in December 2008. The third single "One in Every Crowd" was released in February 2009, followed by the fourth single "Long Line of Losers" on June 22, 2009.


Back When I Knew It All was produced by Blake Chancey. The album's first release to country radio was its title track, co-written by Trent Willmon. In mid-2008, this song became Montgomery Gentry's fourth Number One hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Following it was "Roll with Me", which also topped Hot Country Songs. "One in Every Crowd" is the album's third single, released in early 2009. This song and "Now You're Talkin'" were co-written by Ira Dean, formerly bass guitarist in the group, Trick Pony. "Now You're Talkin'" and "Long Line of Losers" (the fourth single) were previously recorded by Kevin Fowler on his 2007 album Bring It On, and "The Big Revival" was previously recorded by John Anderson on his 2000 album Nobody's Got It All, which Chancey also produced.
