It’s a big week for Stoney Creek Records recording artist and our 2018 Artist to Watch, Jimmie Allen, as we anticipate the release of his first full-length album Mercury Lane debuting this Friday (Check back for our First Impression Review then). Currently, seven of the tracks are available instantly with pre-orders. As the singer-songwriter continues to promote his record, he hit another milestone, making his national television debut on NBC’s TODAY with Kathie Lee & Hoda. For the full performance click here.
The singer received credit for his talent, as the talk show hosts introduced him, “He is one of the hottest acts in country music right now, he is making his national TV debut!” “Jimmie’s first single “Best Shot” is climbing up the country radio chart by the minute,” said special guest John Cena. Quickly, prior to his performance, Allen shared “It took about 10 years to get my first record deal and you figure all that hard work that I put in before now, is paying off. It feels great.”
Allen performed his charted top 10 and rising single, “Best Shot,” which has earned the artist multiple accolades. The track has been streamed by fans over 46 million times, as well as, being recognized as the #1 Most Shazamed song in country music. We first heard the song almost a year ago when Allen joined the New York Country Swag team for a live Swag Session. Check out that performance below.
The hardworking, rising country star heads to the United Kingdom, following the release of Mercury Lane, on Chase Rice’s the Lambs & Lions UK tour for the rest of the month. In November, Allen will take his talents to tour with Scotty McCreery and again with Kane Brown. For more information visit www.JimmieAllenMusic.com.
