Jimmie Allen is an American-country recording artist originally from Milton Delaware, now living in Nashville. He got his start in music with his church where he played the drums, piano and sang in the choir. His love for performing didn’t stop there, though. After being featured in plays such as "Footloose," "West Side Story" and "Peter Pan" in high school, Allen fell in love with the stage. Allen was a part of "American Idol" season 10, where he wowed the judges with his fiery tones, making it all the way to the Top 40 out of 176,000 contestants.
