I have always liked Gary Allen, but I think I realized I love Gary Allen was when I heard the very first note of “Smoke Rings in the Dark.” What an awesome song that is. I guess not everyone thought so though, because while it did well on the country charts, it never made it to number 1. That surprised me, because I really thought it would not only get to number 1, but get there in a big hurry.
At any rate, it seems as though someone else fell in love with Gary Allen even more than I did. That would be Katherine Walker, who was arrested for stalking Gary. And she’s been at it for a while, too. Music City News is reporting that Katherine has been stalking Gary for the past four years.
Her May 2 arrest was the result of her being captured on a home surveillance camera. The report didn’t say exactly what was doing on, but did say Katherine was acting in “violent and bizarre ways". The police confirmed that it is an active investigation.
The Music City report tells us that Gary will get to face his stalker in court on Wednesday in Sumner County. As for Gary and his people – they have declined to comment, except to confirm that he will be in the courtroom on Wednesday. (Is it too late to choose a new career path? I think I’ll pick “court stenographer”.)
Gary has a lot of show dates up on his web site, so be sure to check it our and find out if he’s going to be coming anywhere near you soon. I looked, and I looked … and then I looked again – and he’s not coming here. But I know he’ll be back soon, and I’ll be right there watching with the rest of his fans.
I’ve got two videos to put up for you this morning, it is Part 1, and Part 2 of a radio interview that Gary did with Big D & Bubba, who host a national syndicated radio show.
Time for me to run off and get ready for church. I’ll talk to you guys real soon. Take care! Write soon!
