Front Row L-R: Jon Loba, EVP, BBR Music Group; Jimmie Allen; Zach Katz, U.S. Repertoire & Marketing, BMG

BBR Music Group/BMG has signed Jimmie Allen to its roster of artists.

A Delaware native, Allen has toured the world playing for the U.S. Armed Services, and this summer/fall he will open for Toby Keith’s Interstates and Tailgates Tour. Allen has also penned a song featured in a Super Bowl commercial, and is currently in the studio with producers Ash Bowers and Eric Torres finishing tracks for an upcoming project.

“Jimmie was one of the fastest signings we have ever had at the label for one reason…there just wasn’t much internal debate on the merits of doing so,” says Jon Loba, EVP, BBR Music Group.  “Almost universally…female/male…younger/older…rookies/experienced veterans…everyone at BBR wanted him to be part of our family.  We can’t wait for our partners and the world to hear and see in Jimmie Allen what we do!”

“Signing with BBR Music Group has been one of the most surreal and exciting experiences of my life,” said Allen. “Humbled to be working with Jon Loba, Zach Katz, Kos Weaver, and the entire BBR/BMG staff.  When I met Jon after my showcase there was an instant connection and it just felt like home. So thankful to Ash Bowers, Steve Williams, and Amy Scott for signing me to a publishing deal. Very grateful to Ash for taking the time to help me create a sound that defines who I am. I remember being back home in Lewes, Delaware when ‘Hicktown’ by Jason Aldean hit the radio. Being able to say I’m signed to the same label as Jason is pretty dang awesome. Honored to be joining an incredible roster of talented artists. Super excited to get to work even harder and get rolling!”

Allen is booked by United Talent Agency. He is a SESAC writer and is signed to Wide Open Music for management and publishing.
