NEWS: Jimmie Allen’s ‘Make Me Want To’ hits #1 on US Radio

Today, platinum-selling singer/songwriter Jimmie Allen lands his second career #1 single with “Make Me Want To” (listen here) hitting #1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase country US radio charts. This accomplishment marks the first time in history that a black artist launched their career with two consecutive #1 singles on Country radio—his first being the platinum selling No. 1 single, “Best Shot,” off his Stoney Creek Records/BBR Music Group debut album  Mercury Lane.

On Sunday, the same day Jimmie learned his single was going to claim the top spot on the chart, he and his fiancé welcomed their daughter Naomi to the world, making the career milestone that much sweeter. Of the achievement Allen states:

Super thankful for my radio team, management, band, label and booking agency on their hard work and never giving up on the song. My co-writers, Paul Sikes and Jennifer Denmark are special talents with great hearts, I love them dearly. To everyone at Country radio THANK YOU for supporting this song. The cool thing is I thought the best part of day would be getting a No. 1, but a few hours later my daughter, Naomi was born. The baby and momma are doing great. March 1st will forever be my favorite day. Never give up on your dreams or yourself. Love always wins.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
