New Gary Allan Music - Living Hard

Great news here! Gary Allan, probably my favorite singer of the past couple years, is coming out with a new album called Living Hard that will hit stores October 23. Been waiting for a new album since his fantastic late 2005 effort called Tough All Over (fantastic album, that). He had a greatest hits album in between with the great sad-yet-rockin' track Feelin' Like That. However, Living Hard is all new material - here's the song list:

1. Watching Airplanes
2. We Touched the Sun
3. She's So California
4. Like It's A Bad Thing
5. Learning How To Bend
6. As Long As You're Looking Back
7. Wrecking Ball
8. Yesterday's Rain
9. Trying To Matter
10. Half Of My Mistakes
11. Living Hard

Watching Airplanes is the current single and another great song. I've also heard Like It's A Bad Thing via concert footage on YouTube and it should be a hit single too. In a world of watered down, feel good pop country the likes of Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood put out, a new album from Gary Allan is a reason to whip out the wallet and buy some good music. Here's the description of the album via Amazon:

It's raw and emotional. It's freight-train-to-nowhere lonely. It's hard-rockin', no-apologies country music that has traded in its twang for a gravelly growl millions of fans recognize as the voice of Gary Allan.

Well, I know what I'll be buying on October 23rd. Talk about a good music month for me - a new Springsteen album and a new Gary Allan album. With the exception of the self titled Doc Walker album from the Sping, it's been a dry year for good music. Lucky for me, October's gonna change that.

Go and check out the video for the song on his webpage here, and the Amazon link for the album here.

Oh, and here's some concert footage too of him singing Watching Airplanes...
