Biography and Career:
Gary Allan was raised in La Mirada. In his teen he began to play the honky-tonk circuit with his father.
After finishing school, he continued to play in the bars with his band, the Honky Tonk Wranglers. Many of the venues they played were packed, and promoters often tried to move them to larger clubs. The moves would have required him to stop playing some of the older country music, such as covers of George Jones songs, so Allan refused.
On 28th August, 1993, Allan was introduced to songwriter/producer Byron Hill by a mutual friend and talent-scout Jim Seal, at a bar ca
lled the Lion D'or in Downey, California, where Allan was already regularly performing.
Allan took a job selling cars. He left a demo tape in the glove box of a car purchased by a wealthy couple. When the couple discovered that he was the singer, they wrote him a check for $12,000.
This independent funding allowed Allan to go to Nashville to record some of the songs that were on that early demo tape with Byron Hill as producer.
Allan's seven studio albums and Greatest Hits package have produced twenty-two singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including three that reached Number One: "Man to Man" and "Tough Little Boys" in 2003, and "Nothing On but the Radio" in 2004.
Allan's latest album, Get Off on the Pain, is scheduled for release on March 9, 2010.
He served in the United States Army. He is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (The "Mormon" Church).
