Congratulations Are In Order To Jimmie Allen As He Makes Country History!

Jimmie Allen has worked a long, tireless 14 years to  get to this moment. You know his first single, "Best Shot?" Well, it's just hit NUMBER ONE!

Not only is this exciting but, he's made history by doing it, as well. He is only the second African American country artist to have his debut single hit #1 (Darius Rucker is the other.)

When Jimmie was recently asked about all of his recent success he said:

“If someone asked me two years ago if I thought that this would be my life today—that I’d be on the red carpet at the CMAs or my song would be the No. 1 song on country radio, I would have honestly said ‘no,'” says Jimmie. “Did I think it would happen eventually? Absolutely! Just not this soon. I’m humbled and grateful—it’s such an honor to get my first No. 1 and to know that my song is connecting with people and resonating in a way that hopefully makes us all better people in the end, because that’s really what ‘Best Shot’ is all about.”
