Hollywood, Fla. – MCA Nashville Recording Artist Gary Allan will perform at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, October 6, 2013 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 17 at 10 a.m.
Southern California’s Gary Allan began his career playing clubs during high school. After graduation, he developed a following in the area regularly attracting an audience that featured a rare mix. Allan was particularly inspired by a concert by the Highwaymen – Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson – to pursue music that mined the dangerous side of life.
His nine studio albums have mixed his honky-tonk bravado and grainy isolation while mining the emotional turf that fuels a life well-lived: the joys of parenting, the heartache of personal loss, the testosterone of disagreement and the unpredictability of love. He has registered five #1 singles – “Man To Man,” “Tough Little Boys,” “Nothing On But The Radio,” “Watching Airplanes” and “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain).” – in addition to such trademark hits such as the lonely “Best I Ever Had” and the swaggering “Right Where I Need To Be.” Allan’s amassed seven gold albums in the process – three of them certified platinum, as well – and maintained the admiration of critics for his unwavering uniqueness.
Set You Free, his newest release, is the first album recorded since the removal of a polyp on his vocal cords that had doggedly restricted his range, his strength and his expression. It is a perfectly named, well-conceived album that embodies his evolution toward personal, creative freedom. The album’s lyrical journey from darkness to light reflects much of what went on behind it – the progression of Allan’s own life as an adult, the restoration of his voice, the renewed energy from working with new songwriting partners and the challenge of producing his own tracks and playing his own lead guitar. All of those changes have given him a new sense of freedom.
In Set You Free, Allan found even greater artistic clarity, building a cohesive narrative from a collection of songs directed by three different producers. Longtime friend Mark Wright (Gretchen Wilson, Lee Ann Womack) tracked three songs, while the versatile and mysterious Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant, The Wallflowers) turned in five and Allan co-produced the final four with engineer Greg Droman (Brooks & Dunn, True Blood theme).
