Gary Allan

Man to Man

Composed by Jamie O'Hara

Song Review by

“Man To Man” is Gary Allan’s side of a conversation with his lady’s former beau, in which Allan informs the repentant ex that it’s too late to win back the prize he lost. The lyrics are harsh and realistic, yet maybe a bit too glib for Allan’s good. ‘You want her back, and it’s too late/why don’t we call a spade a spade’ summarizes the song’s tone, but comes across as too abrasive.

It certainly sounds like the writing of this one could have happened to writer, O’Hara.
