Jimmie Allen

Jimmie Allen has shared an untitled new song on his social media channels that he wrote in the aftermath of basketball star Kobe Bryant passing away. You can listen to the song here.
The world – both sporting and otherwise – was stunned when on January 26, a helicopter containing Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gigi and seven others crashed, leaving no survivors.
Allen was one of the millions who was left devastated by the news and taking to this social media, he said that the feeling left him asking a lot of the same questions that he asked when family members extremely close to Allen passed away.
“In the midst of losing my Dad, my grandmother and the tragedy Sunday with The Kobe Bryant, Gigi Bryant and Altobelli family, I found myself with tons of questions,” Allen said. “I wrote this song with Tate Howell, Cary Barlowe and Brandon Day.”
From a music perspective, 2020 is shaping up to be quite busy for Jimmie Allen as he will be touring a lot – with a full US tour locked in (including a night at the Opry in Nashville), an Australian adventure booked and a European stint as well.
Allen had a hugely busy 2019 as well, with a number of high profile supporters tours, appearances at C2C 2019 and was also releasing music videos from his breakthrough album ‘Mercury Lane’.
