Allen premieres "Down Home" video

Friday, March 18, 2022 – Jimmie Allen will premiere the music video for his new single "Down Home" today at 6 p.m. eastern.

The video was co-directed by Allen and Chris Beyrooty and shot between Allen's hometown of Milton, Del and the nearby town of Lewes to keep the spirit of his relationship and memories created with his late father alive. Allens' father, James, passed away in 2019.

The video was shot in black and white to keep focus on the song's subject matter and features many locations vital to Allen and his father's relationship – Allen's childhood home, the baseball field his father taught him how to play on and his father's favorite restaurant.

"Being able to shoot the video in the same place that I created so many memories with my father was super special," Allen said. "It felt like my father was with me every step of the way."

The song is from Allen's forthcoming third album. The track impacted Country radio on March 14 as the most-added song and Allen's biggest add day to date, with 60-plus first-week stations.

The song was co-written by Allen, Cameron Bedell, Rian Ball and Tate Howell.

Allen will appear as a chat guest on The Wendy Williams Show on March 25, in addition to performing an acoustic, solo version of "Down Home." On April 4, he will perform the song on The Late Late Show with James Corden on CBS with his full band. Allen performed the song for the first time at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards.

"But habits are harder than hearts to break," Allen reminds us during the chorus. Had he given us 16 more songs like this jaw dropper, "Tulip Drive" could have been a truly great and memorable album. Ah, but he didn't. For some unknown reason, Allen found it necessary to include ...
CD review - Memory Lane Jimmie Allen's "Mercury Lane" is an album of likeable pop-country. Being likeable is always a good thing, but an album of music merely that is not a sonic description that leads directly to a hearty recommendation. The production on the full-length is big, bright - and in a word - pop. Allen may be a country guy, but these 15 songs will never be confused with real country sounds. Lyrically, Allen - who had a hand in writing most of this album - pushes many of the right radio ...
