Gary Allan debuted his new single, “It Ain’t The Whiskey,” on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Wednesday night. The song is one of Gary’s favorites from his most recent album, Set You Free, and provides a special moment in his live shows.
“I love heart-wrenching songs and songs that really make you think; they’re my favorites,” he said. “It’s a 12-step song, but it’s so poignant. I’ve been playing that one live by myself. We take a break in the show, and I just play that acoustically. We’ve been doing that one forever, way before we cut it. It’s just a great song. I wish I wrote that one.”
