Multi-platinum country music star Gary Allan launching album at Duck Jam

FORT WORTH, Texas. – May 25, 2021 – EMI Nashville recording artist Gary Allan will headline the Ducks Unlimited (DU) Duck Jam with a special concert celebrating the release of his new album, Ruthless, at Texas Motor Speedway on June 26.

The album marks a return to the spotlight with 13 stunning tracks that draw from Allan’s deep-rooted influences of the 80s and 90s and his unique storytelling. Allan will perform new tracks from his 10th studio album, as well as beloved classics.

“It feels great to be playing live shows again and I look forward to heading back to Texas for Duck Jam,” Allan said. “Getting to celebrate the release of my new album, Ruthless, makes it even better.” 

The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996. His album Smoke Rings in the Dark recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with a special vinyl edition. To date, Allan has sold more than 8 million albums, achieved RIAA Platinum certifications on three back-to-back albums, and notched five Gold certifications.
