Best Gary Allen Songs

Published: March 3, 2014

Gary Allen has had a long lasting career that has provided country music fans with many many great songs to listen to. He sings with such emotion and conviction that you feel connected to him and fall even deeper in love with the songs. This is a list of his best and most powerful songs.

  1. Every Storm Runs Out of Rain

    This is one of Gary's more recent hits. It is a beautiful song that is all about picking yourself back up when you've been knocked down. It is a uplifting song to remind us all that even if we are in over our heads or in a dark place, the sun will shine again and the storm won't last forever. 

  2. Smoke Rings in the Dark

    Love is rarely easy. Getting over that love is even harder. This song is about that time after a bad breakup when you are trying to keep it all together and are still facing the memories of your lost love. Those times when all you want to do is drink whiskey and blow smoke rings in the dark. 

  3. Life Ain't Always Beautiful

    This is a song about how even though life can be filled by not so beautiful times, they all help you be shaped into the person you need to be. Everything you encounter in your life helps male you who you are, both the good and the bad, the happy and the sad. Life may not always be beautiful but its a beautiful ride.

  4. Best I Ever Had

    This was a great song when the band Vertical Horizon recorded it, but Gary's version of it blows all other versions out of the water. He recorded it shortly after his wife killed herself and the pain and hurt he was caused by loosing her is evident in every line he sings in this tragically beautiful song. 

  5. Nothing on But the Radio

    Not all of Gary's songs are sad, this is a fine example of one of his great love songs. It's a feel good love song about two people just living in the moment and not needing to do anything fancy. It's a great love song, without being too mushy. It reminds us that sometimes we need to let go of the everyday stresses and just enjoy each others company. 

A true mark of a really great song is how well it touches us and pulls us in. All of these songs do that. Life Ain't Always Beautiful is the most powerful and beautifully written and performed song. These songs really showcase how amazing of a singer, guitar player and performer Gary Allen really is.
