Gary Allan Treats Fan Club Members To Two-Hour Performance

Gary Allan performed a two-hour concert for more than 1,000 fans during his annual Fan Club party, held at Rocketown in Nashville.

In the middle of his performance, Allan stopped to remember his longtime friend, the late Sharon Eaves. Eaves, who passed away in October of last year was the President of Allan’s Fan Club for almost 20 years. Jackie Proffit from St. Jude joined Allan on stage to honor Eaves and her contribution to the children’s hospital.

The fan club party also featured a live auction. Allan also hosted an online auction in Eaves’ honor last week. The auction and event raised more than $25,000 for St. Jude in Eaves’ honor.
