Gary Allan should be more popular...
This guy is one of the more authentic country musicians in the last twenty years. IMO, he's vastly underappreciated and should be bigger than all these pop country acts.

They can say it's country, but it's either bad rock with a fiddle or pop with a twang.

Wasn't prolific enough to be with the greats. But I agree he's underappreciated.

Refuses to do songs about pickup trucks and tractors, because he grew up surfing in Southern California. Props to him for that.

He's released some shitty songs the past 3-4 years.

I'd say he's just popular enough.

I'm a fan...I know he is totally different music wise, but reminds me of Big and Rich....they have been around for sometime and have a lot of songs you know, but nothing that scream superstar.

Smoker Rings in the Dark, Right Where I need to be, Man to Man, Nothing on But on the Radio, Get Off On the Pain, It Ain't the Whiskey, Mess Me Up...

I’m friends with him. He’s written some really good songs that’ll never get released in the past 4-5 years and he’s has had label issues and that’s why there’s been no album put out in that time.

Playing golf with him Saturday in Tunica and then to the show. Always a fun guy to hang out with.

Smoke rings in the dark album was the shite. Loved that album and see if I care. Country is so freaking finicky tho.

Right Where I Need to Be is an absolute classic. That opening riff...

It Would Be You to See if I Care was about as good a 4 album run as anyone in the 90s or 2000s had. I didn’t care for much after those, but every one of those albums is loaded with great, underrated songs.
