Undiscovered: 5 Jimmie Allen Songs We Think You’ll Love

Milton, Delaware native Jimmie Allen, signed with Broken Bow Records imprint Stoney Creek, climbed a number of ropes before garnering a few number one singles including “Make Me Want To” and “Best Shot.”. He is currently celebrating this week as his latest single “Freedom Was A Highway” which features Brad Paisley is sitting in the top spot on the country charts. Here are a few of our favorite Jimmie Allen songs.


1. “All Tractor’s Ain’t Green”


“All Tractors Ain’t Green,” written by Allen, Tim Nichols, and Brandon Hood, is featured on Allen’s debut album Mercury Lane which is named after the singer’s childhood street. The song encompasses that not everything has to be the same and that’s perfectly okay. The musical configuration holds a mid-tempo groove complimenting Allen’s glossy vocal makings. He sings, “All guitars don’t sound the same / Can’t judge whiskey by the bottle / It might go against the grain of that country boy motto / Sometimes what you get ain’t always what you see / All fields ain’t corn, and all tractors ain’t green.”


2. “Boy Gets A Truck”


Written by Ash Bowers and Aaron Scherz, “Boy Gets A Truck” was previously recorded on Keith Urban’s record Ripcord in 2016. You know it’s a good song when multiple country stars choose to feature the song on their projects. Soon after, both Urban and Allen recorded the duet together for Allen’s Bettie James Gold Edition. Urban says, “There’s a guy called Joe Fisher I work with and he sent me ‘Boy Gets a Truck,’ but he said to me, ‘Before you read the title and think you know what the song is, just play the song. I took the song to Dann Huff and said, ‘This is such a good lyric … I think we can take the song atmosphere wise and energy wise to a whole other anthemic place in the studio.'”
