Gary Allan has a new song out on the radio and it sounds like it’s going to be another hit. Gary has been at this game now for 20 years. His first hit single hit the radio around 1996 or 1997. That’s a long time to have hits on the country charts, but Gary has always kind of lived on the edge of country with his own unique sound. And that seems to keep him sounding fresh when he comes out with new music.
Today I heard his new song and it actually got me thinking about when Gary went on a really strong run in the early and mid ’00s. He had a really big string of hits and those albums were full of great songs.
The thing with country music is that artists work on full albums, but a lot of country fans only hear the hits that are on the radio and they miss the album cuts.
There is one song on Gary’s See If I Care album called Can’t Do It Today. I remember hearing this song when I had the album and it was one that I would always kind of turn up when it would come on.
I think it’s about this guy that is really over this woman. She actually seemed to leave him and now she’s looking to maybe get back together for some reason. But he’s over it all and doesn’t want to deal with the drama and the baggage anymore.
He’ll forgive her, but not today and if you catch the comparisons he’s really never going to forgive her and get back together.
Great song that’s catchy and classic Gary Allan. This one could have been a hit.
