The fun and fantastical video for his current single “Make Me Want To” also made its premiere today across CMT platforms as well. Watch the comical video HERE.

“I’m a huge fan of Disney, Harry Potter and ‘The Notebook.’ I wanted to create a video that showcased my love for all three,” Allen shared with CMT. “I feel like authenticity is celebrated today more than ever so with this video I really wanted highlight my quirky side.”

Shot in Franklin and Nashville, Tenn., the video CMT describes as “magical and positively effervescent” was conceptualized by Allen and directed by Justin Nolan Key. The special effects-laden and often humorous video spotlights both Allen’s creativity and natural comedic ability. From a fairy godmother to a magic wand and a romantic love connection to dancing in the rain, the video shares a unique and magical narrative that gives fans a look inside Allen’s subconscious.

“I love that the video focuses on the action and the music is in the background,” Allen continues. “Enjoy Chapter 1! This is the first of a five-part music video collection. Thanks to everyone for going on this journey with me and stay tuned for more!”

Written by Allen with Paul Sikes and Jennifer Denmark, the song is the follow up to his debut No. 1 “Best Shot,” and the second single off his Stoney Creek Records / BBR Music Group debut album Mercury Lane, an album 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.”

The Delaware native recently wrapped runs on Scotty McCreery’s Seasons Change Tour and Kane Brown’s Live Forever Tour. Catch Allen on the road this summer as support on Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour.

About Jimmie Allen:
The epitome of the phrase “persistence pays off,” Jimmie Allen laid it all on the line to make his dreams a reality. Now signed to BBR Music Group’s Stoney Creek Records, Allen’s debut single “Best Shot” is a certified hit, claiming the top spot as the No. 1 Most Shazamed song in the format for eight consecutive weeks, and the No. 1 spot on Country radio for three weeks, marking the first time a black artist has launched a career with a No. 1 hit with their debut single on country radio. On the heels of that historic success, Allen is back with his latest single, “Make Me Want To” which was most added at country radio in its first week with 61 stations.

“Make Me Want To” is the second single off his Stoney Creek Records / BBR Music Group debut album Mercury Lane released Oct. 12, 2018. Named in tribute to the street he grew up on and the origin of his incredible journey, Mercury Lane was produced by Ash Bowers and Eric Torres and features a cutting-edge mix of country, rock, R&B and pop that draws upon the influence of his family and small-town upbringing of the critically-acclaimed rising star. Rolling Stone raved Allen’s debut “challenges the narrowly defined model of what constitutes a next big thing in country music in 2018” and The New York Times dubbed it one of 2018’s strongest, calling it “a conventional country album, filled with songs about the small details.”

The Southern Delaware native’s talent for songwriting is undeniable, having written a song that was featured in a Super Bowl commercial and appearing in a Diet Coke ad with megastar Taylor Swift. “Blue Jean Baby,” off his debut self-titled EP, immediately caught the attention of country music fans and critics alike with its soulful groove— rocketing it to the top of digital playlists, across all genres. Allen recently wrapped his run on Scotty McCreery’s Seasons Change Tour as well as Kane Brown’s Live Forever Tour.  He will also be hitting the road this summer as support on Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour.

A Quick Convo with The REAL Chase Miller

Will the REAL Chase Miller, please stand up!  A new single, good looks and plethora of adoring fans, it’s no wonder Chase Miller has had to get a few fake profiles, that were pretending to be him, removed from Instagram.  I recently had a chance meeting with the real Chase Miller while he was enjoying Stagecoach weekend in Indio, CA.  After posing for pictures, signing autographs and handing out some sweet koozies, he had a few minutes to talk with me, before heading to watch Kane Brown‘s performance.

CVC:  Chase, thank you for your time.  How are you enjoying Stagecoach weekend?

CM:  Really enjoying it.  There are a lot of great artists performing this year and I’ve really enjoyed seeing the up and coming artists and there are some great songwriters performing this weekend.

CVC:  Being a SoCal guy, what does California Country mean to you?

CM:  California Country is just like any other form of country.  It’s getting together with your friends, having a great time, listening to good music.  For me, in California specifically, it’s hanging at the beach with friends, being surrounded by the people I love and care about and partying with them.

CVC:  You have a great single that you just released, “Redneck Weekend“, which is the anthem for good time, what do you have in store for us in the future?

CM:  My producer Nick and I are working on some more material that we’ll be putting out within the next year.  We’re looking at either an EP or an album.  I have my full band back together and we’ll be hitting a few states on the west coast and heading to Nashville in June and do some stuff out there.  I’ll keep working and keep growing the fan base as much as possible.
