Jimmie Allen celebrated his very first Number One hit, "Best Shot," with a party in Nashville yesterday (Tuesday, January 22nd). Jimmie co-wrote the song as well, making the hit doubly special.
Now that Jimmie has some success both commerically and financially, he tells us things have gotten a little easier in his role as father to his three-year-old son, Aiden. ["For me the first Number One and having radio success just means I can afford to take my son to Disneyworld without selling a kidney. For me, everytime I achieve a little success the first thing that pops in my mind (is), 'Okay, cool, how than this benefit my son,' so for me it's like creating a stable environment financially for him, and just past the monetary side just more of an example of, 'Hey man, if you work long enough, hard enough and you're good to people, eventually you'll find people that are willing to work hard for you.'"] SOUNDCUE (:39 OC: . . . hard for you.)
Jimmie's new single is called "Make Me Want To."
He is in Chicago at Joe's Bar for a performance there tonight (Wednesday, January 23rd).
