Los Angeles, Calif. (December 5th, 2022) – A native of Southern Delaware, Allen is a Grammy and NAACP nominated and multi-platinum recording artist that has already amassed 1 billion career on-demand streams and has been making waves on the county music scene since the beginning of his breakout career, earning two consecutive No. 1 hits from his 2018 debut album Mercury Lane. His debut single, “Best Shot,” claimed the No. 1 spot on Country radio for three weeks, while the second single, “Make Me Want,” made history by surging to No. 1 on the Billboards Country Airplay after 58 weeks on the chart. Allen received his first ACM nomination for New Male Artist of the Year in 2019, a CMA Awards nomination for New Artist of the Year in 2020, subsequently winning the ACM Award for New Male Artist of the Year as well as the CMA New Artist of the Year Award in 2021. His third No. 1 hit was “Freedom Was A Highway” with fellow country music star Brad Paisley, off Allen’s 2021 critically-acclaimed album Bettie James Gold Edition. Allen released his third album Tulip Drive this June and its lead single “Down Home” – a song that takes shape as a letter to his late father – is currently climbing the charts, having been hailed a “winner” by Billboard and praised by MusicRow as a “power ballad that exudes sincerity.” Listen HERE and watch the music video (co-directed by Allen) HERE.

 

Allen most recently joined superstar Carrie Underwood’s The Denim & Rhinestones Tour, which kicked off in October, as special guest on all dates. The 43 U.S. arena date tour will continue in February of 2023.

 

Allen has graced the cover of Billboard, and performed on The Kennedy Center Honors, Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Good Morning America, TODAY, American Idol, Tamron Hall Show, Nick Cannon, The Steve Harvey Show, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, CMT Music Awards, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and more. In 2021, he also became a first-time author with the publication of his picture book, My Voice Is a Trumpet – a powerful story about speaking up for what you believe in, at any age – with Flamingo Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers.

The Familie, a new-age agency in sports, music, art, and media, represents those who think differently and takes a boutique-style 360 approach to its management style. The agency’s CEO, Steve Astephen, is thrilled about Jimmie Allen joining. He said: “When we started this company, we wanted to make sure our clients could transcend their platform. Jimmie truly exemplifies the type of talent we look for, someone who isn’t afraid to step outside of their comfort zone. When I first met Jimmie, I saw he was much more than a country superstar. He is truly a multifaceted, talented human, from music to film to fatherhood.  What he has already achieved is incredible; he is the complete package.” 

 

Nano Tissera, SVP of Music, echoed Astephen’s sentiments. He said: “Jimmie is a stand-out artist whose talents know no limits. Part of what drew us in was his unparalleled work ethic and drive to create. His career is already so accomplished, and The Familie is excited to help him write the next chapter.”
