The message of hope found in Gary Allan 's hit "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)" has brought inspiration to millions of people as it's climbed the country charts. Though you might assume the song was inspired by a big event in one of the writers' lives, Gary's co-writer Matt Warren actually came up with the title after a run-in with a weed eater.
Gary tells ABC News Radio, "He was doing landscaping and he hit something with the weed eater and it banked off the wall and hit him in the face."
The phrase "Every storm runs out of rain," popped in Matt's head as he was cleaning up the wound from the gardening incident. He brought it over to Gary and their co-writer Hillary Lindsey and the result is Gary's latest hit song.
It's the lead single from Gary's brand-new album, Set You Free , now in stores.
