With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers, and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics, and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way. Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016, the label home for the entirety of his twenty plus year career. He is currently finishing up work for his upcoming EMI Nashville release. His last album, Set You Free, topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan. The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.” The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 8 million albums, 10 million tracks, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums and been certified gold five times. Allan has five #1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit, and amassed over 1.8 billion total streams. He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.

road less traveled, but the road almost never traveled. Acting as his own record label,

has taken his songs from the campfire to the coliseum seemingly overnight, all the while

His musical journey started in 2011 with the release of his first album Rowdy Reputation.
To follow that up, in the late summer of 2012, he released his second album, Red Wings and
Six Strings. Each and every song from both of those albums have become nightly sing-alongs

Southern Soul was released in 2013 debuted at No. 11.Rhythm and Whiskey was released in
2014 debuted at No. 4. His early 2016 release, Boots On The Ground, debuted at No. 7.

his seventh album, ’Til I’m Gone, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country
Album Sales Charts giving Foster his highest mark yet. He’s a singer, a songwriter and his own
boss. He refuses to let anyone water down his kind of counrty music. If he lives it, he writes
it; if he writes it, he sings it; if he sings it, he believes it. Frank Foster … a true original
