Allen goes down "Memory Lane"
Saturday, September 22, 2018
– Jimmie Allen will release his debut CD, "Memory Lane," on Oct. 12 via Stoney Creek Records / BBR Music Group.
The title takes its name from the street Allen grew up on in Milton. Dec. and pays tribute to the influence home and family has had on his journey. Allen merges R&B and country.
"Mercury Lane is where my journey began," he said. "All of the fundamental life lessons that shaped my values and make me who I am today, I was taught on that street - it's where I learned about love, family, life, how to believe in myself, the concept of never giving up, following your dreams and being a good person."
"This album touches on all of those ideals and truly feels like I'm sharing a piece of my heart with the world. I've been working toward this moment for so long; I can't wait to share it with everyone."
"Mercury Lane" comes nearly one year to the day after Allen dropped his self-titled EP. He has enjoyed chart success with the single "Best Shot."
