Jennifer Lopez, CeeLo Green among Jimmie Allen ‘Tulip Drive’ guests

Album will be released June 24th

Jennifer Lopez, CeeLo Green and T-Pain are among the guest artists on Jimmie Allen’s third studio record, Tulip Drive. The country star unveiled the all-star collaborations upon releasing the album’s 17-song track listing on Monday (May 23rd). Tulip Drive arrives on Friday, June 24th via Stoney Creek Records/BBR Music Group.

Additionally, the album’s pre-order and first instant grat track – “On My Way” featuring Lopez – will be available on Friday, May 27th at midnight ET.

“This is the first [album] where I chose to write songs about my own personal experiences, thoughts and hopes,” Allen shares of the project. The result is a body of work that reflects his signature approach to music and continue to solidify his superstar ascent.

All has teamed with Jason Evigan, Gian Stone, Ash Bowers, Vinny Venditto and Vic “BillboardKiller” Martin, Jesse Frasure, Keith Hetrick, Ilya Toshinskiy and Eric Torres for a co-producing role for the project.

Much like its predecessors, the album’s title is deeply personal to Allen’s family ties – Tulip Drive is the name of the street his late grandmother grew up on. Allen’s 2018 debut album Mercury Lane was named for the street Allen grew up on, and his 2020 and 2021 releases, Bettie James & Bettie James Gold Edition, were named for his grandmother Bettie Snead and father James “Big Jim” Allen, who passed away in 2014 and 2019, respectively.

Beginning this fall and through spring 2023, Allen will take his impressive live show to 43 arenas nationwide as special guest on all dates of Carrie Underwood’s The Denim & Rhinestones Tour. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

Allen has been on the road on the Down Home Tour since its sold out start in February. The 20+ date trek marked his first solo headline tour and will conclude with the second annual Bettie James Fest on August 13 at Hudson Fields in Allen’s hometown of Milton, DE. This year’s slate of performers include We The Kings, Lainey Wilson, Neon Union, Chayce Beckham, JJ Rupp and Kounty. Allen will once again serve as headliner for the festival, which he established in 2021 in honor of his grandmother father. Tickets to the festival are on sale now here.

Most recently, Allen was nominated for Best New Artist at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Male Artist of the Year at the 57th ACM Awards, which he co-hosted alongside Dolly Parton & Gabby Barrett, and Outstanding New Artist at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards. He is the reigning CMA New Artist of the Year and earned his third career No. 1 with “Freedom Was A Highway” with Brad Paisley in February.
