The newest rising star in country music, Jimmie Allen is back with his brand new single ‘21‘. The track has been inspired by his hometown life. Speaking about the song via social media, Allen says: “This song paints a picture of my hometown and every time I sing it I’m flooded with great memories from that time in my life”.
The brilliant track is lifted off the star’s upcoming record ‘Slower Lower Sessions’ which is due for release later this year and is the follow up to his self-titled EP release which dropped back in October of last year.
’21’ also comes on the back of his huge breakout single ‘Best Shot‘ which opened doors for him all across the world and has become a massive chart hit in America. The hit single was one of the best performing tracks of 2017 and has helped Jimmie to become one of the major breakout star’s in recent times.
Last night he even made his Opry debut which is an extremely proud moment in any country singer’s career;
May 4th 2018 at 8:30pm I took the stage for the first time at Grand Ole Opry. As I walked on stage nervousness slowly started taking over me. Once I stepped inside the "CIRCLE" a calm rush came over me and I could feel the presence of all the Country Music Legends that had stood there before me, it was like they were saying "just be calm we are here with you and welcome to the family". The dream I had since I was 12 years old was accomplished. No words can really describe the feeling and amount of emotions running through my body. When I finished singing "Best Shot" the crowd stood up clapping, screaming and whistling. As I stood there in this surreal moment tears of joy began to roll down my face. All the years of hard work and sacrifice paid off. It was worth it…I JUST PLAYED THE OPRY!!! Thank you so much to my father for introducing me to Country Music and thank you Grand Ole Opry family for welcoming me with open arms. THANKFUL ???
