Jimmie Allen scores his 4th number one song at country radio this week with his single, “down home.” Learn all the details here.
Jimmie Allen is certainly on his way to becoming a household name. The talented country music singer-songwriter is known for creating music that speaks to his fan base, his positive personality, and of course his incredible, undeniable talent. Earlier this year, Allen shared a special song called “down home.” Today the track is the number one song at country radio.
Written by Allen with Cameron Bedell, Rian Ball, and Tate Howell, the song pays homage to the singer’s relationship with his father, who passed away in 2019. The soulful song is a relatable song about grief, love, and survival.
When Allen found out about the song’s radio success, he took to social media sharing a touching sentiment. “Shout out to my friends at Country Radio for supporting “Down Home”. It’s a song I wrote about my father. So glad to see people have connected with you. To everyone mourning the loss of someone you love, so sorry for your loss. Hold on to the good memories you made with them.”
He later shared, “Dear Dad, I knew you existed and now the world knows. Thank you country radio for helping me share my father’s memory.” In the same post, the singer also thanked his co-writers.
“I promise I’m working // With this guitar ’bout as hard as I can // I met a girl, bought a house // Put a nice little payment, down home // Is still there where my heart is // This down home kid is just how you left him // I still hate that you’re gone, I wish you were here // But I hope I’m making you proud // ‘Cause I know you’re up there looking down home”
A huge congrats to Jimmie and his team! This number one is definitely a special one.
