Jimmie Allen has announced an EP of collaborations that will include songs with Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Tim McGraw and more called Bettie James.
The project is inspired by and named after his late father, James Allen, and grandmother, Bettie Snead, who passed away in September 2019 and February 2014, respectively.
Jimmie said, “I am a fan of every artist on this project and humbled to have each one of them be a part of it. 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.”
He added, “My dad and grandmom were two completely different people, but both played a huge part in my life. Since they died, I have been wanting to leave trails of their legacies throughout my music.”
The project’s tracklist will be revealed next week. Bettie James also includes Allen’s current single “This Is Us” featuring Noah Cyrus.
Allen posted to Instagram, “Out July 10th!! Looking forward to sharing these songs with the world.”
