UMG Nashville’s Billboard 200 chart- topping artist Gary Allan rings in the new year with a string of SOLD OUT shows. Allan kicked off 2017 in style with six back-to-back-to-back SOLD OUT shows in the month of January: two in Nevada, two in Minnesota and two in Texas.
With his rowdy band behind him, Allan performed one blistering 90 minute show after another. With his signature blend of swagger and smoky vocals, Allan performed a crowd pleasing set of fan favorites like “Smoke Rings In The Dark” and ”Right Where I Need To Be” along with chart toppers including “Watching Airplanes,” “Nothing On But The Radio,” and his latest #1 “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain).” After two high-energy sold out shows in Mahnomen, Informclaimed “Gary Allan is one of the hardest working men in country music.”
Deemed “the outlaw country’s new wave dreams of being,” in USA Today, Allan has sold over 7 Million albums and is a rare breed of artist in today’s country landscape. He has been a fixture on the scene for twenty years, making his own uniquely identifiable brand of country music with an unwavering sense of self. Cutting the songs he wants to cut, making the records he wants to make, all to much critical and fan acclaim. Last week Houston Chronicle noted “he’s made music that honors the Bakersfield tradition of his native California, and he’s also served up country ballads that could win over arena rock fans.” Allan is currently working on the follow up to SET YOU FREE, which made its debut at #1 on both the Billboard Country Album Chart and the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart). Propelled by the #1 smash hit “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain),” the album sold over 100,000 units the first week in stores and earned critical acclaim from critics across the nation including Rolling Stone, People, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and The New York Times among countless others. The album has been certified GOLD by the RIAA for sales of over 500,000 downloads.
