Fast rising US country singer Jimmie Allen premiered the official music video for breakout debut single ‘Best Shot’ over the weekend via the major American music TV channel ‘CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown’.
The personal track which is inspired by advice from Allen’s grandmother, is currently climbing the country radio charts in the States after debuting as the 2nd ‘Most Addded’ song.
The official clip draws inspiration from the honest and self-reflective nature of the single. The video was directed by Ford Fairchild who brings ‘Best Shot’ to life with a look back through Jimmie Allen’s journey to becoming the man he is today. With sweet family photos and home movies from his childhood, the video showcases Jimmie’s more introspective side.
Speaking about the official video, Jimmie says: “To me ‘Best Shot’ is about accepting that we all have flaws, we all make mistakes and we’ll all experience a few bumps in the road but all of those hardships lead us to where we are today so at the end of the day, what really counts is that you’re trying your best and giving life your all. My family has always been such a large part of my journey so it was incredibly special for me to incorporate them into my first-ever music video. It’s a really cool full circle moment to be able to share with them.”
