‘Home’ is a special place to all of us and we often connect our childhood and the neighborhood streets we kept busy with helping shape the person we grow into. Country artist Jimmie Allen is using his first full-length album to pay a special homage to the influence that his family and home had on his journey to musical stardom. After teasing fans with hints at the track list and behind the scenes exclusive content, the hotly anticipated tracks on his new album are going to be available October 12.

Allen’s debut album, Mercury Lane, has a very personal and unmeasurable significance for the South Delaware native. It might just be the name of the street he grew up on, but for Jimmie there is no other place in the world like it.

“Mercury Lane is where my journey began. All of the fundamental life lessons that shaped my values and make me who I am today, I was taught on that street—its where I learned about love, family, life, how to believe in myself, the concept of never giving up, following your dreams and being a good person,” said Allen in a press release. “This album touches on all of those ideals and truly feels like I’m sharing a piece of my heart with the world. I’ve been working toward this moment for so long; I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

This highly anticipated album comes to us almost a year after Allen released his self-titled EP.  If we learned anything from that quiet launch, it’s that we have a lot to expect from this quickly rising artist.  Jimmie is set to hit the road in support of Scotty McCreery and Kane Brown’s tours as well as take his live show to the UK alongside labelmate, Chase Rice.
