Gary Allan has lived a very colorful life filled with a lot of interesting characters. Those relationships shaped who Gary is today and also inspired his latest single, "Pieces."
Gary says, "I always believe that no matter who you meet, you take something from that person. You meet them for a reason, especially anybody that’s in your life for any length of time."
While some of those pieces he's taken from people are positive and some are negative, Gary celebrates the whole person those pieces have created in his latest single.
"It's what you've been through that makes you," Gary explains, "and to me, that's what 'Pieces' is."
"Pieces" is the follow up to Gary's latest #1 hit, "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)." Both songs are included on his latest album, Set You Free , in stores now.
