Stoney Creek Records announces Jimmie Allen’s eagerly anticipated debut single “Best Shot” which will be impacting Country radio on Tuesday, February 20. In addition to sharing his first single and embarking on an extensive nationwide radio tour, Allen is also telling his story to the world with a brand new docu-series “Jimmie Allen All In.”
The six-episode docu-series lets fans get to know Jimmie as an artist and as a person. The first three episodes of his docu-series, “Jimmie Allen is a F#@!ing lunatic!,” “$21 & a Dream,” and “Slower Lower” are available here. Taste of Country exclusively debuted the episode “All I Had Was Hope,” noting “Jimmie may be the most feel-good story since fans learned of Shania Twain’s hard luck upraising.” The site will premiere the final two episodes in the following weeks (February 7, February 14). Visit Taste of Country next Wednesday for the latest on “Jimmie Allen All In.”
The hot newcomer burst onto the scene after dropping his EP in October, instantly winning over music lovers with his cutting-edge melodic mix of Country and rock, soulful groove and heartfelt lyrics. Fans on digital streaming players took notice, quickly pushing Allen to the top of the players’ Country music playlists and beyond. His feel good “Blue Jean Baby” reached #8 on Spotify’s Viral Top 50 list, proving his cross-genre appeal.
“I’m so excited to share my music with the world and let people get to know me and I feel like ‘Best Shot’ is a great intro to that because it is so personal,” said Allen. “It was inspired by advice that my grandmother always gave about women and how they just want to know that we care and that we’re trying—her words always stuck with me. At the end of the day, I just want to make my grandmother proud, she was my everything.”
Allen has received numerous accolades from critics and fans alike, he was recently named one of Billboard’s “15 Country Artists to Watch in 2018” and earned spots in CMT’s “18 for 2018” Listen Up program and Bobby Bones’ Class of 2018. He was also featured on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know,” Pandora’s “Country Artists to Watch 2018,” Sounds Like Nashville’s “13 New Country Artists to Watch 2018,” NYCountry Swag’s “2018 One’s to Watch,” and Country Music Rocks’ “CMR Artists to Watch 2018” lists.
