Gary Allan Hopes He Has Willie Nelson’s Longevity in the Business [VIDEO]
Gary Allan professes to being a renegade in the music business, but there are several other rebels out there who lasted a long time and gained respect from their public because of their unconventional ways. One of those success stories is Willie Nelson. Gary tells Entertainer, “It’s been a challenge to get into this town. But I’m also really comfortable with where I am, being slightly on the outside. I just wanted to be viable and I guess, prove that the viable stuff can be necessary.” Referring back to his first entrance into the business, Allan goes on to say, “My goal was–and remains–to be like Willie Nelson or George Strait–people who consistently rise….I want to be like Willie, playing until I’m 70.” If he keeps making hits like this, there should be no problem.
