Music Q&A Gary Allan

Gary Allan’s Set You Free remains atop the Billboard Country Singles Chart for a second week in a row. The disc sold nearly 34-thousand copies this past week to hold steady at number-one on the country chart and land at number-eight overall. And Gary says there’s alot of diversity on this record:  “I sort of forced myself to stretch this time; one, because I had so much time and I always feel like you have to do something new to reinvent yourself, and this time it was [with] producers. I did stuff with Jay Joyce, which I’ve never done. How we did it this time is I did five songs with Jay Joyce, five songs with Mark Wright, and then I did five songs with my band and engineer Greg Droman. I think if you cut everything at one time, if you cut 15 songs, usually it’s okay if you end up with an album cut or a couple songs that don’t make the record. But since we did it like that, we were all competing with each other. Like we only got five, so there was a lot less room for mistake. And I think the result is we just got better quality everything. I think it’s my favorite album too.”
