Jimmie Allen released the nostalgic music video for the latest song “Boy Gets A Truck,” off of his debut album Mercury Lane. Viewers are taken down memory lane with a special guest appearance by his four-year-old son, Aadyn. The true to himself, newly engaged family man shows off his smooth, strong vocals that pair perfectly with a song that reflects on one’s own upbringing and the role that a truck played in his life. Allen tells a story with a truck being the focal point connecting memories of his life, family, and love. He begins by pulling his own Ford F-150 into the driveway and taking his son out of the car. Before you know it, he is in a Walmart parking lot loading a motorized mini truck onto the back of his Ford to bring home to surprise his son with his very own to drive.
That is where it all begins, as Allen sings in the chorus, “A boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl/Girl gets a midnight feelin’ he’s the one/One night turns to love/Love turns into one knee down/Down payment on a three-bedroom house/Filled with the sound of little feet/Then you blink and he’s askin’ for the keys to pick her up/Boy gets a truck.” Allen’s son meets a little girl his age from the neighborhood and drives her around in the sentimental music video. It all comes full circle for Allen, as he knows years from now that toy truck will turn into his son’s very own drivable one where he will continue to make memories of his own.
Allen is currently playing alongside Michael Ray and Walker County on “The CMT on Tour,” tour and will be making a stop in New York City on Thursday, December 5th at The Gramercy Theatre.
