Jimmie Allen is starting the new year with a bang as his latest single, “down home” claims the Number One spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart. This is Jimmie's career fourth chart-topping in addition to being Country radio’s first Number One of the year.
Jimmie co-wrote the song, which serves as a letter to his late father James, who passed away in 2019. The singer turned to social media to share the big news writing, “Dear Dad, I knew you existed and now the world knows too. Thank you to Country radio for helping me share the memory of my father through this song . . . To every person that listened to this song, thank you. I read every message about how this song related to you and the person you lost. I’m sending love and peace your way in dealing with your loss.”
Jimmie most recently performed “down home” on New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash on CBS, in addition to co-hosting the show live from Nashville’s Bicentennial Park alongside Elle King & Rachel Smith.
Jimmie will return to the road as part of Carrie Underwood‘s The Denim & Rhinestones Tour on February 2nd in Miami, FL.
