Gary Allan Involved in Bus Accident
Gary Allan and his band were involved in a bus accident on Wednesday (Oct. 2), while on their way to a concert in Alabama.
The 45-year-old singer tweeted a photo showing what appeared to be the pushed in cargo door of his tour bus on Wednesday evening.

The accident looks to have been minor, and no injuries were reported. Allan’s tour schedule on his web site shows no cancellations coming up as a result of the incident. The ‘It Ain’t the Whiskey’ singer will keep busy on the road through most of October before wrapping up the year with a few scattered shows in November and December.
The singer and his band and crew certainly escaped from this latest accident far better off than they were in August of 2009, when a tornado that touched down at the Big Valley Jamboree in Alberta, Canada totaled their bus and much of their equipment. Allan’s touring operation was so badly impacted that he had to borrow gear from friends like LeAnn Rimes and Rascal Flatts just to stay on the road while insurance claims were being decided.
