After moving to Nashville, Jimmie Allen struggled with poverty and living out of his car. He did not make it past the preliminary auditions of America's Got Talent. Allen was cut before the live round of season ten of American Idol but became friends of Scotty McCreery, who won that season finale. After Allen released the first EP, he and McCreery toured together.
Since this time Jimmie Allen has had tremendous success with singles like "Best Shot," "Shallow," "All Tractors Ain't Green," and "Make Me Want To." Allen's latest single "Boy Gets A Truck" was released on October 12, 2019. The song explains that there is truly an order of things in life... a boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl.
"Boy Gets A Truck" Chorus
A boy gets a truck, truck gets a girl
Girl gets a midnight feelin' he’s the one
One night turns to love
Love turns into one knee down
Down payment on a three bedroom house
Filled with the sound of little feet
Then you blink and he’s askin' for the keys to pick her up
Boy gets a truck, oh yeah
Truck gets a girl
Jimmie Allen - "Boy Gets A Truck"
