Gary Allan had a Number One hit last year with “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain),” which he co-wrote with Matt Warren and Hillary Lindsey, and the song still keeps resonating with fans and industry alike. The threesome are nominated for Song of the Year at next week’s ACM Awards.
Gary tells The Dr. Don Show with Rachael and Grunwald the nomination for “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” means a lot to him. “(It’s) really cool just to be acknowledged as a writer, especially (for) that song. That song is a lot of firsts for me. It was first time I’d written a No. 1, first time I’d produced, first time I’d produced something with my band, so there was a lot of personal things that went into that. And I wrote it with some tight friends, so it’s always fun to have success with people that you know.”
