Gary Allan’s Album Ruthless – Available Now!

Gary Allan’s Album Ruthless – Available Now!

It’s been a long wait for Gary Allan fans – but his new album Ruthless is available now!

His last full-length album, Set You Free, came out in 2013, and Gary says it was never his intention to have it be this long between projects, “I don’t think that I thought that I was gonna take eight years to do this. Each project that I did in those eight years, I thought was gonna be released. So, the good part about it was I had so much material to go over to make this album, and because I had so much time, I cut 28 tracks. I usually cut 13 tracks to pick 10, so to cut 28 tracks and then reduce that down to 13, I think really made for a strong album. Not that I’d really want to do every album this way, but it really made for a strong album. I’m excited for everybody to hear it.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
