Back in December 2019, during his opening slot on the CMT on Tour with Michael Ray, Swag Session alumni, Jimmie Allen performed a killer new song called “Good Times Roll”. The singer-songwriter teased that the song would come later this year and featured a collaboration with none other than cross-genre recording artist Nelly.
Now, as 2020 quickly becomes pretty much the worst year of existence, fans everywhere can rejoice knowing that Allen will officially release the catchy new song along with an entire album of all-star collaborations this Friday, July 10th. Check out a sneak peek of the song in the video below.
“Good Times Roll” is a perfectly titled tune geared towards making fans dance and sing along. Written with rapper Nelly, the new jam even features a snippet of Nelly’s classic song “Country Grammar” of his debut record. The new song is infectious and will get stuck in your head after just a single listen. Allen is proving that his talent resonates across genre lines and that modern country music has no boundaries for a reason.
When it comes to his co-writer, Nelly is no stranger to collaborations. He has collaborated with everyone from Simple Plan to other hip-hop artists to even country’s own Florida Georgia Line on their smash hit “Cruise.” He also earned himself a major crossover hit with his song “Over and Over Again” featuring Tim McGraw and penned his own country tune, “Sound Good to Me.”
In addition to Nelly, the new album, titled Bettie James, also features artists like Brad Paisley, Charley Pride, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Tim McGraw and more. If each song is anything like this one, we know it will be an album full of greats.
Bettie James will be available Friday, July 10th across all streaming platforms. For the latest new tunes in country music, follow our ‘New Country Music’ playlist.
