Patience Pays Off For Gary Allan Fans

(Radio.com) "If it's not right, you shouldn't put it out." So says Gary Allan, talking about the nearly three years between his last release and his brand-new album Set You Free, which recently hit stores.

And something must be "right," because this week, Set You Free debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 album chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The first single from Set you Free, "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)," is Number One on the country singles chart this week as well.

As Gary explained in an interview with Pat and Tom from Sacramento station KNCI, this in some ways worked to his advantage. It also inadvertently led to him trying some new approaches to the recording process.

"We had a label head change," he explains last year, the outgoing Luke Lewis was replaced by Mike Dungan, who is now Chairman & CEO of Universal Music Nashville Entertainment. So "I did the whole album kind of in the blurry zone" during that transition time, Gary says.

His reasons make good sense. "I heard one guy was getting phased out, so if I had given him my record, I'd [be] in the middle of a failed record right now. So I waited until he was gone." more on this story
