Gary Allan will release his first album in eight years with Ruthless, a collection of 13 songs due June 25th. The lead-off track, Temptation is our Song of the Day! Written by Nicolle Galyon, Chase McGill, and Jon Nite, the single is a pulsing mid-tempo song with emphatic drum hits and atmospheric string sounds.

Speaking about the album, Allan says, “This is a montage of everything I have done since my last album. It’s what I love. I remain influenced by the ‘90s -- as well as by the ‘80s. Twenty-six tracks were cut for this album. Then I went back to the studio and recorded three or four more tracks. Then I returned for two more. From each of these many sessions, I stripped out the cool stuff that I wanted on the record.”

In 2016, Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, the label home for the entirety of his twenty-four-year career. His last album, 2013’s Set You Free, topped the all-genre Billboard 200, 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 #1 US country radio chart topper with Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain). He followed up with a string of one-off singles.

The California-native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 8 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times. Allan has five No. 1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed over 2.6 billion total streams. His album Smoke Rings in the Dark recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with the release of his first ever vinyl appearance.
