With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way.

Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016, the label home for the entirety of his career that spans more than 20 years.

He is currently finishing up work for his upcoming EMI Nashville release. His previous 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 8 million albums, 10 million tracks, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums and been certified gold five times.

Allan has five No. 1 hits at country radio, 14 Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed more than 1.8 billion total streams.

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 sells out venues as a headliner from New York to L.A., 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.

The 164th Bureau County Fair will run Aug. 21-25 in Princeton.
