*Allan currently performing across the US on THE RUTHLESS TOUR: 25 Years The Hard Way*
Multi-platinum-selling country music renegade Gary Allan has announced his celebrated new album RUTHLESS (EMI Nashville), which was released in June to critical acclaim, will also be available on vinyl October 22. The album, praised by TASTE OF COUNTRY as “an unusually diverse album that touches on both contemporary and more classic country vibes, as well as some R&B and rock influences…a track listing that keeps the listener guessing with each new song,” earned the country star his 9th Top Ten album spanning an incredible 25-year career.
The California native marked his return to the country music spotlight with the stunning 13-track album produced by Allan along with veteran producers Mark Wright, Tony Brown, Greg Droman and Jay Joyce. RUTHLESS, one of Allan’s most commanding albums to date, features exceptional songwriting, and superb instrumentation, and Allan’s unique gift for storytelling, wrapped in his passion for 80s and 90s musical influences. The album also finds Gary collaborating with some of Nashville’s top songwriters including Hillary Lindsey, the late Busbee, Shane McAnally, Nicolle Galyon, Ross Ellis, Ryan Hurd, Jim Beavers, Blair Daly, The Warren Brothers and more.

“I grew up listening to my dad’s vinyl records and then started my own collection. There is just something different about the sound from a vinyl LP,” says Gary Allan. “When the album starts spinning and you drop the needle, it is an experience. I’m excited my fans will now be able to have that experience with some of my music.”
Gary Allan is also currently on a US tour, THE RUTHLESS TOUR: 25 Years The Hard Way, through the end of 2021, with upcoming stops in Dallas, Biloxi, Tucson, Yuma, Kansas City, Joliet, Detroit, Dodge City, Mescalero and Tulsa.
