Born in Milton, Delaware, Jimmie Allen first realized he could become a country music performer after his father played him "Does My Ring Hurt Your Finger" by black country star Charley Pride.
He moved to Nashville in 2007. For his first decade, Allen worked multiple jobs to pay the rent and played gigs at Lower Broadway bars for tip money. Allen also auditioned for American Idol in 2010, but they cut him before the live voting rounds.
After signing to Broken Bow Records Stoney Creek imprint, Allen released his self-titled debut EP. He dropped his first official single, "Best Shot," in early 2018. It made the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, and since then, Allen's country songs with a R&B influence have continued to chart.
