If I were a recording artist, and I have a record label, and I wanted to open a clothing store – knowing clothes have a label in them….sure, I think The Label is a great name for a clothing store. And, so did Gary Allan. The country artist has opened a clothing store in Nashville, called The Label. In an article at The Boot, Gary said he thought it was a good idea, and it was easy to put together. Easy? He’s got more talent than I have.
"I’ve got lots of designer friends in California that I’ve had since I was 15 or 16. I know that everybody pays a stylist to fly someplace … I’ve probably got 10 or 15 designers – that would be ten or 15 different stores that you’d have to go to, so to me it’s just trying to pull it together."

Who would be interested in an article of clothing from The Label? According to Gary – just about everyone. He’s already sold to ZZ Top, Journey, and Guns N’ Roses.
Gary continues to work on his music, and has a new album, Set You Free, set to release early in 2013. He has shows up on his web site through July, all across the country. You can check that schedule out here.http://www.countryschatter.com/2012/11/gary-allan-opens-clothing-store-the-label/NewsToursclothes,country artist,guns,journey,music,Nashville,record label
