Rising country stars Jimmie Allen and Abby Anderson have come together to release their own cover of the duet, “Shallow.” The Grammy and Golden Globe-winning song performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the film A Star is Born is nominated for Best Original Song at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, airing Sunday, February 24.
“A Star is Born was one of my favorites from last year, and the performance of this song in the film really moved me as an artist,” said Allen. “I had chills! Getting to cover ‘Shallow’ with my good friend Abby was such a cool experience. She’s an incredible vocalist, and I’m excited for fans to hear our take on the song.”
“I think I speak for everyone when I say that I bawled like a baby during A Star Is Born. The song ‘Shallow’ immediately stood out to me,” said Anderson. “When Jimmie called and asked if I would sing on this song with him, I was honored. I mean I’m no Lady Gaga, but working on this with Jimmie, who pours his whole heart into a song vocally, was an absolute joy.”
The newly nominated ACM Best New Male Artist of the year Allen is currently supporting Kane Brown on his Live Forever Tour and will also be hitting the road this summer as support on Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour.
As announced earlier this week, Anderson is set to open for Rob Thomas as direct support on Thomas’s Chip Tooth Smile Tour. The 44-date tour kicks off in Red Bank, NJ on May 28 and runs through August 4 with stops in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville.
