Gary Allan surely loves to sing songs where rain is involved. In 2012, he scored his fourth and last number one with his song “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain).” But before that, he recorded a song known as “Songs of Rain.” It’s a single where rain has to be playing a big part in the song to set the atmosphere.

Furthermore, it crossed over to the pop chart at number seventy-one. Rolling Stone included Allan’s song to be one of the 100 greatest country music of all time.

The Content

“Songs About Rain” was penned by Pat McLaughlin and Liz Rose. The song tells the story of a man who was broken hearted because the love of his life is already in somebody’s arms. In addition, he has nowhere to go, so, he decided to drive around without any destination. The worst part he said was when the radio keeps playing sad songs about rain. The songs played by the radio were “Here Come That Rainy Day Feeling Again,” “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain,” “Kentucky Rain,” “Early Morning Rain,” and “Rainy Night in Georgia.”

The Album, See If I Care

Allan’s fifth studio album, See If I Care, has made an appearance on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart at number two. Furthermore, it reached number seventeen on the Billboard 200. In 2006, his album, See If I Care, was platinum-certified by RIAA.

His songs “Tough Little Boys” and “Nothing On But the Radio” both have reached number one on the country chart.
