Listen NOW to the Troy Allan special!
Troy Allan is a singer/songwriter and musician from Vidor, Texas. He plays rhythm and some lead and does solo shows singing everything from originals to country to island music and classic rock. Troy was influenced as a kid by Willie and Waylon, and George Strait all the way to Van Halen...with a side of James Taylor.
Troy has released his first CD entitled ONE MAN ONE GUITAR, as well as his first full studio "Just South of Corpus" cd. That CD was the 2008 Texas Music Awards Top 5 Finalist for Male Vocalist, and Song of the Year for the title track. Troy has been the Bass player for a Tropical Rock band called Hannas Reef for 3 years. Troy learned he had a very rare stomach cancer--Linitis Plastica. It is the fastest growing cancer known to man and also the most deadly. Troy stumbled across this disease early and made a full recovery. Due to the silent growth and virtually no symptoms from this cancer, Troy has taken it upon himself to alert the masses. He has learned since his Stomach removal surgery in January 2010 that he is now the longest living person with Linitis Plastica. After learning this, Troy launched the "TROY ALLAN CANCER FREE 100 HOUSE CONCERT TOUR."
One of those house concert tour dates was in Georgia. He stayed at the home of Monte Tolar and we had the opportunity to catch up with Troy Allan and even have him perform a mini-concert for the benefit of all those who would like to listen in.
