Allan released his eighth album earlier this week, Get Off on the Pain, and the title track is his current single. His previous single, “Today,” also is included on the album. Allan wrote five of the album’s 10 tracks and co-produced the album with Mark Wright and Greg Droman. Songs such as “We Fly by Night,” the indestructible title track, and “I Think I Had Enough” consolidate the strengths of previous Allan music.
“They’re more focused,” Allan says. “Everybody just knows more of what we’re going for now, because I always use the same players in the studio; I’ve done that since day one. This is nine records, counting our Greatest Hits album, we’ve made together. So I think everybody just knows what I want. It’s just a lot easier.”
Allan landed on the U.S. country music scene in 1996 on Decca Records with his debut album Used Heart for Sale. The album advanced to the Top 20 on a number of charts and his Top 10 hit single “Her Man” helped lead the album to a gold-certified status later that year. Two years later, Allan released his second album, It Would Be You, which also included a number of Top 10 singles including “No Judgment Day,” written by famous country musician Allen Shamblin.
Over the course of the next seven years, Allan produced another four albums including the 2005 release of Tough All Over (MCA Nashville). This album was created by Allan as a result of the heart-wrenching death of his wife Angela and included several Top 10 songs which he wrote or co-wrote dealing with his grief. Tough All Over sold more than 100,000 copies in its first week and landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The album, which too was later certified gold, also debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Allan is scheduled to open select shows on Brooks & Dunn’s Last Rodeo tour this summer. For more information on the concert or Allan’s latest release, visit www.garyallan.com.
