Career beginnings

Career Beginnings

  • Allan began performing early, at only 13 years old.

    • For his father’s band

    • Later with his own band, The Honky TonkWranglers.

  • He was encouraged by both parents and industry scouts.

  • First album recorded in 1996 with Decca Records.

  • Switched to MCA in 1999 for his 3rd album.


Inspiration

Inspiration

  • Allan co-writes much of his music and is inspired by “real” life situations and feelings.

    • He views “pop” music as fun and carefree whereas country, in his view, tends to be focused on everyday life including commitment, love, sorrow, and the simple joys in average life.

  • Allan’s wife, Angela, died,

    tragically, after shooting herself

    in their home.

    • Angela suffered from severe,

      untreated depression.

    • Allan’s music has been signi-

      ficantlyinfluenced by her death.
