This morning, 2019 ACM Award Nominee for New Male Artist of the Year Jimmie Allen performed “21” from his album Mercury Lane on ABC’s Good Morning America. Amy Robach introduced Allen and said, “We are back with rising country star Jimmie Allen – his debut album Mercury Lane features the number one single “Best Shot.” “Jimmie is making history actually as the first black artist to launch his career with a number one song on country radio, and here he is performing “21.”
With a casual baseball cap and a stylish coat, Allen rocked out with his band with an energizing performance of “21.” The up-tempo fast track song with easily relatable lyrics speak of going down memory lane, and longing to be young again with the chorus:
“Twenty-one, I can see it like a picture / Up on the hood of my truck with a sixer / Hangin’ with the boys talkin’ ’bout girls / Slow-mo watchin’ this world go round and round this nowhere town / Somewhere between forever and young, twenty-one”
Allen ended things on a high note, literally, showing off his dramatic vocals and wowing the audience with his incredible performance. In addition to the already popular fan favorite “21,” and Allen’s No. 1 hit “Best Shot,” his latest single “Make Me Want To” is climbing the charts and was the most added at country radio in its first week. The undeniably talented singer-songwriter recently finished up supporting Kane Brown on his Live Forever Tour and will be joining Chris Young on his Raised on Country Tour, as well as Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour. Be sure to check out his performance and see him out on the road. For more information go to www.jimmieallenmusic.com.
