  • Music to my ears

    He is a cheery act. Great on the guitar and great performances...
  • Traditional country. Always stays close to it. Great songwriter too

    I've been a fan of Alan since I could talk. His music really tells simple truths that come from his heart and what most of America thinks. He has a great voice too. He's half contemporary and half hard-core country. The fact that legends like Haggard and Jones respect him. It says a lot. It really does. Sometimes I wanna laugh when I hear his songs sometimes I wanna cry. I guess that's another reason I really like Alan. He has us feel different emotions. We aren't stuck on the same one every time.
