Twenty years ago a country hopeful named Gary Allan signed to the now-defunct Decca record label and released his debut album, “Used Heart for Sale.” The album’s hit single “Her Man” helped propel Allan into the national spotlight.
The nation soon became acquainted with his trademark country vocals and a country style with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude. After the turn of the millennium, Allan’s career exploded, with six albums grabbing the top five positions on the U.S. Country chart.
Allan currently is teasing his fan base with what is shaping up to be a new album. The country star released a new single, “Hangover Tonight,” in March 2015. With its mix of Motown soul and down-home country, “Hangover Tonight” could be considered one of Allan’s most versatile singles.
When he received gold certification for his last album, “Set You Free,” he also debuted another new single, “Do You Wish It Was Me.” Time will tell when Allan’s fans can expect his next full-length work.
