- Gary Allan knows how to work a crowd:
How many nights did you play clubs when nobody was there?
Probably one or two nights a week. We even learned how to clean out a bar! (laughs) We’d play ballads. We’d be ready to wind down, so we’d play slow songs purposely so you could put people to sleep and push them out of the bar. Yeah, for years we did that.
How did playing in those clubs prepare for that moment when you got the deal?
It’s exactly what my dad said — you play those nights when nobody’s listening and you play those nights where everybody’s listening and you play for people you don’t know, and eventually you carve out your own thing. You walk out with authority, no matter what crowd it is.
