“Wrong roads and dark horses I know about. Still, I think the pain can get to be some kind of a positive for me because it connects to everything I’ve ever dreamed of. While it’s relentless, it’s confirmation of the actual existence of this big musical drama, the result of the dream,” says Allan.
That dream, for Allan, was to become exactly what he has become over the course of a lifetime in the field: a singer and songwriter forever cognizant of country music’s rough and storied past, yet never wholly enslaved by its stylistic or social traditions. Finish up 2012 with Gary Allan on Sunday, December 30 at 8pm in Silver Legacy’s Grande Exposition Hall.
