Jimmie Allen’s New Single Most Added At Country Radio

On the heels of his historic No. 1 debut single “Best Shot,” country breakout star Jimmie Allen is back with a song he wrote with Paul Sikes and Jennifer Denmark, “Make Me Want To.” It’s the second single off his Stoney Creek Records / BBR Music Group debut album Mercury Lane.

“I’m a sensitive guy,” Allen shares. “I’m usually the one to catch feelings for a girl first. So while on the surface this song may seem like it’s the typical ‘boy meets girl at a bar’ type of story, it’s really about a guy who falls head over heels for this girl, just like that. The lyrics say it best: ‘Yeah it might be too soon to say I love you, But you’re gonna make me want to.’”

“Make Me Want To” is the follow up to Allen’s debut No. 1 “Best Shot,” which made history after spending two consecutive weeks on top of the Country radio charts and returning to No. 1 again for a third week after falling one spot, marking the first time a Country Airplay debut has hit No. 1 for three weeks since Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise” in 2012 and the first for a solo male artist since Blake Shelton’s “Austin” in 2001. “Best Shot” is also the first song by any artist to return to No. 1 on Country Airplay after descending in over a decade.

The Delaware native wrapped his run on Scotty McCreery’s Seasons Change Tour this weekend with a sold-out show in Boston and will hit the road next month with Kane Brown on his Live Forever Tour.
