I am a huge fan of Gary Allan. From his songs Life ain’t always beautiful to watching airplanes. So I was excited to be able to review the new CD titled Set You Free.
I was not disappointed 11 out the 12 songs I was able to sit and listen. I think the 12th song will grow on me. My favorites were It ain’t the whiskey and Every storm.
Gary Allen is a true story teller in his songs. You can feel his emotion whether it is upbeat and makes you want to dance. To the pain and despair in his other songs. The most soulful song on the CD is Hungover Heart. I am loving the reggae feel of No Worries.
His track list includes
It Ain’t the Whiskey
Sand In My Soul
You Without Me
One More Time
Good As New
Early praise for the album is also is coming in from the following: USA Today, Billboard, Country Weekly, Boston Globe and Indianapolis Star, among others. I am singing its praises. I absolutely love this CD. When I pick up my new vehicle in a few weeks this will be the first CD I download to the hard drive.
The song One More Time had me tear up and think of my dad who we lost almost five years ago. I haven’t had that happen in ages. This CD is like a soundtrack to my life right now. No worries reminds me of my husband. Every storm was my life from August to Dec last year.
