Jimmie Allen is an American country music singer.
Allen is a native of Delaware and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2007.During most of his first few years in Nashville, he experienced poverty and often lived out of his car.
There, he worked as a songwriter, including a song that appeared in a Super Bowl commercial. In 2017, he signed to Broken Bow Records’ Stoney Creek imprint and released his self-titled debut EP, which Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic compared to the “slick, assured style” of Thomas Rhett and Sam Hunt.
A song from the EP, “Blue Jean Baby”, became a viral hit on Spotify. His first official single, “Best Shot”, has made the Country Airplay charts and was made into a music video.
