This morning, platinum artist and Billboard 200 chart-topper Gary Allan earned an ACM Award nomination for Song of The Year for “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain).” Allan co-wrote and self produced the #1 hit, making the nomination all the sweeter.
Allan was in the middle of a writing session when his manager John Lytle called with the news. Allan said “its always nice to be recognized for what you do. While we were writing the song, we knew we had something special. I’m glad to hear that our peers agree.”
Allan’s co-writers on ’Every Storm’ were long-time friend Matt Warren and writing sensation Hilary Lindsey. Warren who came up with the title said “I’m humbled, honored, elated, blessed & super stoked to know we are nominated! Writing an awesome song that you’re proud of, that everybody seems to love & that also goes to #1, is a beautifully redeeming thing for a writer.” Lindsey added “Woooo Hoooo!!!! I am so honored to be an ACM song of the year nominee!! I love this song and the sweet friends that I wrote it with! We’ve heard a lot of stories about how ‘Every Storm’ has touched a lot of people and it has done the same for me in so many ways. I’m so thankful and blessed to have been a part of it!”
The ACM Song of the Year nod is yet another benchmark for the smash single. ’Every Storm’ topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart, the USA Today Powered By Media Base Chart as well as the iTunes Country Singles Sales Chart. The song also helped Allan to earn his best first week chart position to date, catapulting the industry veteran to #1 on the Billboard 200 all genre album chart as well as the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Album Chart.
Allan will be in Las Vegas for the awards when they air live Sunday, April 6 on CBS.
