Jimmie Allen has been announced as ACM New Male Artist of the Year.

ACM Awards host Keith Urban broke the news to the winner via a video message, while Allen was working in the studio.

Along with New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett and over 25 other artists, Allen will perform live at the annual awards ceremony, which is being broadcast on Sunday April 18th from three iconic Nashville venues: Grand Ole Opry House; The Ryman Auditorium; and The Bluebird Cafe.

Jimmie’s latest single, ‘Freedom Was A Highway’ with Brad Paisley, is currently on the New Music playlist at BBC Radio 2 for a second consecutive week.

The single was first featured on Allen’s star-studded collaboration record ‘Bettie James’, which has garnered more than 120 million streams.

On July 13th 2021, the multi-faceted artist will publish his debut children’s book, My Voice Is a Trumpet, with Flamingo Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers.

Illustrated by veteran illustrator Cathy Ann Johnson - the picture book is a powerful story about speaking up for what you believe in, at any age.
