Gary Allan performed to a sold out crowd of over 800 fans at his Fan Club Party, held Tuesday (6/9) at Rocketown. He walked out onto the stage with his left hand in a splint, following a trip that morning to the hospital for an MRI which confirmed torn ligaments in his hand. The injury did not stop him from delivering his signature brand of hard-hitting country music for his fans. Allan blazed through an hour and a half set including his new single “Today.”

On Wednesday (6/12) emerging songstress Shawn Mayer and Mark O’Shea (half of the up-and-coming country duo O’Shea) teamed up to fire off CMA Music Festival week with a bang by participating in the NRA Sports Sporting Clays Showcase at the Tennessee Clay Target Complex. After a safety demonstration and gearing up with eye and ear protective gear, they played the 12-round course.
