Guide Review - Gary Allan - Tough All Over
"Best I Ever Had," the first single off this album is a real touching song and it sure had me from the start of it. "Nickajack Cave (Johnny Cash's Redemption)" tells of the late country legends life after his drug and alcohol years that had "him strung out on the ropes."
I'm glad that Gary decided to write some of the songs on this album because it shows the talent that he processes. "I Just Got Back From Hell," "Puttin' My Memories Away" and a couple others are just a glimpse I'm sure of what he went through after the loss of his wife. You can feel the sorrow and pain in the lyrics, and it sure make me feel for him.
A great way to heal by writing, singing and sharing your own life situations. It must have been a long road but I'm glad he had this to concentrate on, what great therapy it must have been.
