Jimmie Allen Announces New 7-Song EP, “Bettie James,” Featuring Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley, Mickey Guyton & More

Jimmie Allen will release a new collaborative EP, Bettie James, on July 10.

The seven-song EP features a host of guest artists, including Brad Paisley, Charley Pride, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Nelly, Noah Cyrus, The Oak Ridge Boys, Rita Wilson, Tauren Wells and Tim McGraw.

“I am a fan of every artist on this project and humbled to have each one of them be a part of it,” says Jimmie. “Each artist has touched the life of my dad, my grandmother and me through their music. I’m proud of this body of music and thankful to every writer that helped me create Bettie James.”

The new EP takes its moniker from Jimmie’s late father (James Allen) and late grandmother (Bettie Snead).

“My dad and grandmom were two completely different people, but both played a huge part in my life,” says Jimmie. “Since they died, I have been wanting to leave trails of their legacies throughout my music.”

Jimmie co-produced the new project with Ash Bowers. The EP’s lead single, “This Is Us,” featuring Noah Cyrus, was released in March.

In 2018, Jimmie released his debut album, Mercury Lane, which features No. 1 hits “Best Shot” and “Make Me Want To.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
