CD reviews for Gary Allan

Set You Free CD review - Set You Free
Gary Allan sets it straight where his musical universe is at when he starts the disc with the words "That was a tough good bye" in Tough Goodbye. You know this is not going to be an easy, joyful ride throughout these dozen songs mainly constricted to heartache and hurting, just as Allan's past would indicate. A look at the song titles - It Ain't the Whiskey, You Without Me, Hungover Heart - makes that abundantly clear. The number one hit Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain) is a »»»
Get Off on the Pain CD review - Get Off on the Pain
The title may not evoke pretty images, and Gary Allan makes it clear where he's coming from, starting with the title. This is not the feel-good, pop country infiltrating the country airwaves these days. Life and especially love ain't easy at all, and Allan makes damn sure you know that in case it wasn't absolutely, positively clear. Allan's voice is killer, easily one of country's best, and he utilizes that to great effect here (as usual). There's a tremendous »»»
Living Hard CD review - Living Hard
Gary Allan's latest album shows the musician branching out slightly from his roots rock-meets-country feel of previous albums with the pretty, Americana-laced opener "Watching Airplanes" kicking things off. And while the song brings Tim McGraw to mind, Allan puts his own spin on it that comes complete with subtle strings. But the singer is intent on driving the same flavor home with the slow-building "We Touched The Sun" and later on with "Learning How To Bend" »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Sara Evans comes around again with Barker Family Band, and that's just fine – What goes around comes around for Sara Evans.

For now, Evans, at 49, has lost absolutely none of her vocal super powers, and her offspring can handle their own at... »»»
Concert Review: White makes hurting sound real good – John Paul White entitled his new disc, "The Hurting Kind." But there is no hurting of any sort on White's performance - well maybe only when considering the subject matter - showcasing his vocals and a bevy of quality songs. The CD moves White closer to his Southern roots mixing country and roots sounds. The concert followed suit.... »»»
