Something to Be Proud Of: The Best of 1999–2005 is the first greatest hits compilation album by country music duo Montgomery Gentry. It was released in 2005 (see 2005 in country music). The track "She Don't Tell Me To" was newly recorded for this album, and was released as a single. Two other tracks ("Didn't I" and "Merry Christmas from the Family") had previously charted, but not included on any of Montgomery Gentry's other albums. The former was included on the soundtrack to We Were Soldiers, and the latter was a Christmas single.
