“DPAC is thrilled to add country artist Gary Allan to its repertoire. It is another step in establishing DPAC as the venue with something for everyone,” said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC. “2010 promises to be DPAC’s most diverse season yet with some of the best entertainment around.”

Gary Allan is best known for his gravely growl and his raw, emotional, freight-train-to-nowhere lonely lyrics. In his last release Living Hard, from MCA Nashville, Allan once again proves that, though times may change, the thread of truth at the center of his music remains the same. Allan’s new album Get Off On The Pain is slated to be released spring of 2010, and the album is perhaps Allan’s most personal release to date, as he penned roughly half of its tracks including “No Regrets,” a song he wrote about losing his wife to suicide in 2004. The first single, "Today," is an emotional ballad about losing a love to someone else. The song is climbing the rungs of the Billboard charts.
Over the years, Allan’s seven studio albums and Greatest Hits Package have produced twenty-two singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including three that reached Number One: “Man to Man” and “Tough Little Boys” in 2003, and “Nothing On but the Radio” in 2004. For more information go to
