KNUE ‘Artist Spotlight’ of the Week: Gary Allan [VIDEO]
Every week KNUE spotlights a country artist, and this week the spotlight is on Gary Allan. Gary Allan’s latest LP, “Set You Free,” is a perfectly named, well-conceived album that embodies Gary’s own evolution toward personal, creative freedom. The album, like a storyline of a book, follows a man’s journey through failed relationships and making it to the other side. This is an extremely personal record for the country artist who has had his own journey, and made it to the other side.
Gary decided that he would approach this album (No. 9) in a little different way. He started with playing lead guitar on some of the tracks, writing more on his own and using a handful of new co-writers. Some critics consider this LP one of Gary’s most optimistic, and one that acknowledges the struggles of the past, allowing him to move forward.
