Gary Allan is known for both his music and his live show – and he brings that show to West Texas at 8 p.m. Dec. 2 at the La Hacienda Event Center.

Allan has five No. 1 hits at country radio, 14 Top 10 hits and amassed more than 270 million total streams, his website details.

Reviews? He has a few. He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.

He also gives back. He helped with Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief.

“I have so many fans, friends and family in Texas that it often feels like a second home to me. Watching the news and seeing all of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey is truly heartbreaking,” he said after the storm and then encouraged fans to be generous.

Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016, the label home for the entirety of his 20 year career.

He is currently finishing up work for his upcoming EMI Nashville release. His last album, “Set You Free,” topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan.

The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), and produced his fifth No. 1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.”

The California native released his first album, “Used Heart for Sale,” in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling more than 7 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times.

He sells out venues as a headliner from New York to Los Angles and has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar and People magazine.
