I was lucky enough to have the chance to talk this week with one of my favorite country artists, Gary Allan. Over his 17 year career, Gary has achieved multi-platinum status, producing 26 singles on the Billboard Country Charts (including four number ones), and wowing countless audiences. He'll be putting on a show at the Missouri State Fair Pepsi Grandstand, Saturday Aug. 10.

Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster and the Missouri State Fair Box Office. Premium Track $40, Regular Track $35, Premium Grandstand $25, and Regular Grandstand $20.

Gary was a blast to talk with, and we got to chat about his upcoming show at the State Fair, his latest album, his beginnings in country music and more. Plus I got the inside scoop on his recent knee injury, it's a funny story. Listen to the interview below!
