Support added to Gary Allan March 22nd concert
With the allure of a modern-day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. Peoria fans can see Gary Allan live at the Peoria Civic Center Arena on Thursday, March 22nd at 8:00 pm. Tickets are on sale now at the Toyota Box Office at the Peoria Civic Center, Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
Joining Gary Allan will be rising-star Dillon Carmichael. Carmichael remembers when country songs used to say something and the 23-year-old singer-songwriter is betting that fans of honest country music agree. Since scoring a publishing deal during his senior year of high school, the Kentucky native has been focused on writing country songs with meat on their bones, hearkening back to a time when country emphasized true-life lyricism. Carmichael currently has 2 hits out now, ‘Old Songs Like That’ and ‘Made to Be a Country Boy’. Learn more by visiting dilloncarmichael.com.
