Gary Allan to Launch New Single “Do You Wish It Was Me”

Gary Allan

Yesterday morning, EMI Nashville Recording artist Gary Allan announced the release of his latest single “Do You Wish It Was Me?”  The song ships to radio this morning, and will go for adds on June 13, with a digital on-sale date of June 10.  Co-written by Allan, Jonathan Singleton and Andrew Dorff, the sexy new song was co-produced by Allan along with Greg Droman.  Allan’s longtime touring band can be heard on the single helping to capture the firey energy of Allan’s live performances in the studio.

Gary played the song for his label team last week at a private gathering, where he was presented with a GOLD plaque for his most recent studio album SET YOU FREE.  Allan was surprised when UMG Nashville President & CEO Mike Dungan presented him with a plaque studded with platinum after platinum album, celebrating his incredible 20 year career.  With sales of over 7 Million albums, 8 Million tracks, 250 Million Streams, 5 #1 chart topping singles and 14 top ten hits, the team has much to celebrate.

Allan was appreciative of the obvious enthusiasm the label has for the single and collection of songs on the new album.  “Looking at this plaque and thinking back on the past twenty years makes me grateful for the great team of people I have around me.  There have been people who have come and gone from Universal, but this is still my home and they are all my label family,” said Allan.  “I am excited about getting ‘Do You Wish It Was Me?’ out to radio, playing it for the fans and continuing to work with Mike, Cindy and the entire EMI/UMG Nashville staff.”

Allan and his team took a moment to commemorate the night posing for a quick photo.

Miranda Lambert Moves The Pink Pistol Home & Blake Shelton Calls Dibs

pink pistol

Miranda Lambert will be putting her eclectic lifestyle boutique, The Pink Pistol all under one roof in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. The flagship store will be moving to a newer and bigger location beginning of August. The new location will have a larger inventory, more “Miranda’ize” merchandise, and unique shopping opportunities for her fans. The Pink Pistol in Tishomingo, Oklahoma will close.

Having all her passions and endeavors (outside of music) in Lindale has been a goal for Miranda. Her foundation, MuttNation Foundation that she started with her Mom, Bev, is based in Lindale. Their passion and commitment to helping rescue dogs, to educate the public about shelter dog adoptions and providing funds to no-kill shelters in all 50 states started at the family kitchen table in Lindale.

Miranda expressed, “It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof’ basically where it all began in my hometown of Lindale. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”

The current Pink Pistol Texas store is located at 100 E. Hubbard in Lindale, TX until the opening of the new flagship store beginning of August, so plan your Labor Day Road Trip now! The store will be located at The Cannery, on 120 E North Street, Lindale, TX, a mixed use development complex with retail, fast casual and experiential dining as well as residential lofts. Stay tuned for more details soon.

However, Oklahoma’s former Pink Pistol location won’t be vacant for long.  Blake Shelton confirmed on Twitter that he’s purchased the space, and big things are in the works.
