Gary Allan professes to being a renegade in the music business, but there are several other rebels out there who lasted a long time and gained respect from their public because of their unconventional ways. One of those success stories is Willie Nelson. Gary tells Entertainer, “It’s been a challenge to get into this town. But I’m also really comfortable with where I am, being slightly on the outside.
