Gary Allan tickets - Gary Allan tour dates

Gary Allan Schedule

After playing an infinite number of smoky clubs and bars with his father as a teen, eventually country music superstar Gary Allan steered his own band through the fairs and venues of Southern California for multiple years before inking a deal with Decca Records and dropping albums that have yielded a string of critically acclaimed hits.

All of his hard work paid off, and today, Gary Allan is one of the megastars of the country music scene. Allan is headed out on the road with stops scheduled at venues like the Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi; National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds in Dothan, Alabama; The Showroom at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona; and more.

Gary Allan Background

Hailing from La Mirada, California, Gary Allan Herzberg was brought up in a household that placed a strong emphasis on music. It was Allan's mother who always made sure the family's guitars were ever present in the home. When he was just 13, Allan played in honky tonks alongside his father. And at the age of 15, he was courted by A&M Records, but turned down the deal. His parents wanted him to focus on his education, and Allan's father believed that Gary still had to polish his own authentic style. Despite his dedication to completing his education, Allan said that he found it hard to pay attention in class: "I played the bars at night, I was half asleep when I got to school. I thought sleep was what you did when you go to school."

After high school graduation, Allan forged on performing at clubs and bars with his band, the Honky Tonk Wranglers. They were always able to bring down the house, filling the venues to capacity. Promoters frequently made the effort to get them into larger clubs as well, but the moves would have necessitated Allan to quit playing some older country music, which he didn't want to do.

In 1993, Allan met songwriter/producer Byron Hill through a mutual friend and talent scout named Jim Seal. They were introduced at the Lion D'or in Downey, California, where Allan regularly took the stage. They asked Allan permission to use the venue to show off an unsigned act. Hill had set up an opportunity to bring the head of A&R to the concert to see this unsigned act take the stage. Allan agreed to letting them use his stage. In return, Hill made a promise to Allan to have the A&R head stay for Allan's performance slot. Allan made a huge impression, and Hill put plans in motion for Allan to lend his vocals on some existing demo tracks. Hill eventually became the head of A&R at BNA Entertainment and instantly wanted to ink a deal with Allan. But current roster conditions and other circumstances hampered the deal.

Allan soldiered on, and took a car sales job. A demo tape of his was left in the glove box of a truck bought by a well-to-do couple. When the couple found out that Allan was the singer, they cut a check for $12,000. The funding enabled Allan to afford a trip to Nashville to record some of the tunes that were on that initial demo tape.

In the fall of 1995, Hill and Allan worked for a few days on four tunes that Hill unveiled to record labels. The recordings brought multiple labels to Allan's door, including Decca, RCA and Mercury. Eventually, Decca won Allan over. His first three albums included: Used Heart for Sale, It Would Be You and Smoke Rings in the Dark. Used Heart for Sale earned the "Best of the Month" title presented by Stereo Review. It also climbed its way to the Top 20 of the charts, producing a Top 10 hit along the way, "Her Man." It Would Be You yielded the hit song, "No Judgement Day," which garnered extreme airplay. The title single also became Allan's second Top 10 hit of the year. And, his third effort, Smoke Rings in the Dark, claimed platinum certification and produced two hit singles. In 2001, Alright Guy dropped, containing the singles "Man of Me," "The One" and "Man to Man." See If I Care followed, which included the hits "Nothing On but the Radio," "Tough Little Boys" and "Songs About Rain."

Tough All Over came out in 2005, selling more than 99,000 copies in its first week. It also landed at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the magazine's Top Country Albums chart. The deeply touching album served as a healing effort for Allan to deal with the loss of his third wife to suicide. The album featured the Top 10 singles, "Best I Ever Had" and "Life Ain't Always Beautiful."

His debut Greatest Hits collection dropped in the spring of 2007. The album scored the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts.

Living Hard also arrived in 2007 and produced singles like "Watching Airplanes," which settled in for more than 30 weeks on the country charts. His other albums include: Get Off on the Pain (2010); Icon (2012); and Set You Free (2013).
