Jimmie Allen Makes “Good Morning America” Debut with Performance of “21”

Rising Country star and ACM Award nominee Jimmie Allen performed “21” off his debut album, Mercury Lane, today on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Host Amy Robach introduced the performance in the 8 a.m. hour, noting Allen’s history-making year as the first black artist to launch their career with a No. 1 song at Country Radio.

This special appearance was Allen’s first performance on the GMA stage, adding yet another career milestone to his growing list of achievements. As Robach mentioned, Allen made history with his breakout three-week No. 1 debut single, “Best Shot,” described by Rolling Stone as “a soulful, acoustic love song” and celebrated by the N.Y. Times for both its “choked-up weeping-guitar pattern” and as proof that “he is most effective as a romanticist.”

His follow up single, “Make Me Want To,” is the second from Allen’s debut album Mercury Lane, which Rolling Stone praises as “a sturdy, hits-packed collection that… challenges the narrowly defined model of what constitutes a next big thing in country music.” “Make Me Want To” was Most Added at Country Radio with 61 stations reporting in the first week and is currently making its way up the chart.

A first-time nominee at the upcoming ACM Awards in the New Male Artist of the Year category, Allen also recently debuted a sizzling cover of the GRAMMY, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning smash hit “Shallow” (see the video with fellow country newcomer, Abby Anderson here).

Allen recently wrapped his supporting stint on Kane Brown’s Live Forever Tour and made his debut appearance at C2C, the U.K. and Ireland’s preeminent music festival. He will be hitting the road this summer as support on Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour as well as making an appearance on the CMA Fest Chevy Riverfront Stage in June.
