To me, country music's about life. It's about Monday through Friday. It's the blue-collar, 40-hour week, songs about life. It used to have more of a sound, but I think the heart of that's still the same. It's still American music. — Gary Allan

If you're truly in a band and you guys have been together for a long time, there's a family bond that you have.

Gary Allan Quotes 592124

I don't want to hear songs about how sunshiny things are. I don't like songs that feel like radio candy ... I like the ones that make you think, laugh or cry - they pull some kind of emotion out of you. — Gary Allan

So I think each time the challenge for me is to try and reinvent a little bit. — Gary Allan

Gary Allan Quotes 931355

I've always said I've wanted to be around forever. I never wanted to be the latest, greatest thing. I want to be like Willie Nelson - touring when I'm 70. To do that, you can't be the latest, greatest thing because those things fizzle out. — Gary Allan

Gary Allan Quotes 2133469

I think the real problem is that nobody buys albums anymore, so you don't get the depth of the artists that are out today.

It really bothers me. — Gary Allan
