Gary Allan, The Country Balladeer
Gary Allan was born in California. He has been interested in music at an early age because of the guitars that were visible in their home. He already played honky tonks with his father at the age of 13. A&M Records offered him his first contract but the family refused.
He was encouraged to finish his studies and his father believed that he has to hone his skills in music more. After graduation, he continued playing with his band but he soon refused to play due to the requirement of playing older country songs like George Jones.
About the Song
The song was released in 2003. It was the second single from his album, See If I Care. According to Paoletta of Billboard Magazine,
“Allan delivers an aching, poignant vocal that wrings every drop of emotion from the lyric.”
The song narrates how a man drives around town. The man thinks about the woman who left him alone and married another man. It reflects the pain of losing someone and being affected in a way that he did not imagine. The radio play songs like “Rainy Night in Georgia,” “Kentucky Rain,” “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain,” “Early Morning Rain” and “Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again.” These song doesn’t help his current situation.
