About The Show
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. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way.
Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville in 2016, the label home for the entirety of his twenty plus year career. He is currently finishing up work for his upcoming EMI Nashville release. His last album, SET YOU FREE, topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan.
The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row,) and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.” The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 8 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times.
Allan has five #1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed over 1.85 billion total streams. He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.
He sells out venues as a headliner from NY to LA, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar and People magazine.
Jackson Michelson - The day the musical fire lit in Curb recording artist Jackson Michelson, he hit the ground running and never looked back. A born entertainer with a knack for fan interaction, the Portland, Oregon native has long averaged upwards of 200 shows a year, playing to crowds that just seem to 'get' him and his music. Paired with his sound - a generally upbeat, eclectic mix of classic country storyline with elements of roots and rock - Michelson’s success thus far has
earned him a prominent spot in country music’s landscape. “I’m an entertainer, it’s who I am. I’m not there for you to clap for me - I’m there to put on a show and engage with you.”
Watching his brother chase a career in music, Michelson caught the bug early on. “Seeing my brother do what he did made music seem possible. I remember thinking, ‘Man, that’s what I want to do. If I can do that, I want to do that.’” After years spent honing his craft, he hit the road with a recorded EP in-hand - and distributed 20,000 copies. His independent success caught the attention of several labels, including his ultimate label home, Curb Records. “Tim McGraw was a favorite of mine growing up, and he was signed to Curb. I knew it was my place.”
Michelson has spent the better part of the past few years preparing new music. “I started working with Curb for publishing, and wrote over 100 songs last year so I’d have plenty to pick from.” Collaborating with Justin Ebach, Jeff Pardo and Jim Ed Norman for production, his new music is a testament to his hard work, continued dedication to fans and spot as one of country music’s most anticipated up-and-comers. “There’s nothing like the fan connection that comes with a great song and live performance. I have to do this for the rest of my life.”
