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.”
