In the “Musical Insights” series, country artists share their thoughts on some of their most popular tunes.
Gary Allan says that when he set out to write his latest single, “Do You Wish It Was Me,” the song had some stiff competition from the very start.
“Jonathan Singleton and Andrew Dorff – man, I’ve always wanted to write with both of them,” reveals Gary in a statement from his record label. “I had a song already that I wanted to beat, so I basically took that song and played it for them and said, ‘If we beat this, we have a single.’
“And, then we went through a couple of their hooks, landed on the hook. It was a great write. It was an easy write, and then I tracked it with my band, and my band absolutely delivered. I love the track, so proud of it.”
Gary will perform at Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula on Sunday, December 11th.
