ACM Awards nominee Jimmie Allen made his debut on ABC’s Good Morning America Thursday, delivering the sepia-toned nostalgia of “2

Part of Allen’s Mercury Lane album – which also includes his #1 debut “Best Shot” and the current single “Make Me Want To” – the track tells a familiar tale of glory days lost. Allen mixes a dramatic vocal full of longing with quick-fire lyrics, all about wishing he could go back in time. Meanwhile, his band colors the song in with shadowy swells, giving it the feel of a far-off memory.

“Twenty-one, I can see it like a picture / Up on the hood of my truck with a sixer / Hangin’ with the boys, talkin’ ‘bout girls / Slow-mo watchin’ this world go / Round and round this nowhere town / Somewhere between forever and young / Twenty-one,” goes the chorus.

Allen’s Mercury Lane album is out now, and he’s nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the upcoming ACM Awards. He’ll also be hitting the road hard this summer. Allen first joins Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and then Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour.
