Gary Hannan

 
m3s049garyhannan
Gary Hannan, a native of Zimbabwe (then Southern Rhodesia), shared his music at a South African fireside where he spent many nights strumming his guitar with fellow soldiers.  At 18, Hannan was drafted into the Rhodesian army and then the South African special forces for the conflicts of the early 1980's. In 2005, Gary experienced his first big single #1 hit with Joe Nichols as the artist singing "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off". In 2009, "Back When I Knew It All" went to #1 with the dynamic country duo Montgomery Gentry.  Today Gary continues to write great country songs, telling his tales and inspiring new songwriters.  Some of the artists singing his hit wonders today are Montgomery Gentry, Darryl Worley, Michael Peterson, Craig Morgan, John Michael Montgomery, Joe Nichols, Richie McDonald of Lonestar, and Hot Apple Pie to name a few.  Some of his best times in songwriting have come from co-writing sessions with members of Bread, Mötley Crüe, Firefall, Rascal Flatts, Blues Brothers, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and many others! For more information or to book Gary visit: www.garyhannan.net
