There's no better way to start off the week than with concert news and we're doing it again! Gary Allan, who was offered his first recording contract when he was just 15, will perform at the Alliant Energy Powerhouse Arena in downtown Cedar Rapids this fall.

The owner of fourteen Top 10 hits and five number one songs, Gary will bring those smoldering vocals to the stage for his usual raucous performance on Saturday, October 9. His chart-topping hits are Man to Man, Tough Little Boys, Nothing On But the Radio, Watching Airplanes, and Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain). Click each title to listen to them now.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 30 at 10 a.m. but we'll have a special KHAK presale Thursday, July 29 beginning at 10 a.m. To receive the presale information on Wednesday, download the free 98.1 KHAK app and turn on Concert/Event alerts. More show details are available HERE.

The last time I saw Gary live was too long ago. It was way back in 2013 when he performed at the Great Jones County Fair. It's long past time to see him again. And on a Saturday night at the Alliant Energy Powerhouse Arena... oh, yeah. This is going to be a fun one. We'll see you there!
