On his first couple of albums for Decca, Gary Allan's talent was somewhat submerged in assembly-line Nashville production. After a label change, his third disc, 1999's SMOKE RINGS IN THE DARK found him fulfilling his potential with a rootsy, accessible New Traditionalist sound. A few years down the line, he continues to progress, bucking the Nashville Nazis along the way.
The album opener "Drinkin' Dark Whiskey," co-written by hard-country rebel Mike Henderson, is so full of fierce electric guitar and tough singing, it might have fallen off a Steve Earle record. The terse, tortured "See If I Care" sounds like a cross between Dwight Yoakam and TUNNEL OF LOVE-era Springsteen. "Songs About Rain," penned by another country upstart, Pat McLaughlin, cleverly skewers overused song metaphors. There are no charging power ballads on SEE IF I CARE and no hokey, cheap-shot lyrics, just tasteful production, thoughtful songwriting, and solid singing--fairly novel concepts for a 21st-century country star.
Artist Overview
Gary Allan's place in contemporary country is an interesting one. His rugged good looks and crisply produced albums position him as a Nashville player, but his gritty honky-tonk inspired songs are perhaps a little too authentic for the soccer-mom crowd. A country music journeyman, Allan was nominated for the 2003 Country Music Association's Horizon award for best newcomer, despite nearly a decade in the business and several Top Ten country singles. However one chooses to view Gary Allan, there's no denying that he has become a true country-music superstar. His first greatest-hits package was released in 2007 and debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200.
