On Friday night (Aug. 26) Gary Allan honored a longtime fan for her loyalty. When the singer heard that one of his biggest fans, Renee Wray, was planning to attend the show at The Cotillion in Witchita, Kansas, and that it would be her 300th show, he made the show special for her. When Wray arrived at the venue, Allan and his band were waiting backstage and surprised her with a private gathering, a custom-designed cake, on-stage seats and a specially-designed and handcrafted ring from Allan’s jewelry collection.
