Jimmie Allen only knows one level of commitment in life– going at full throttle. Whether it’s his passion for music, Dancing With The Stars, fatherhood, or sports, the Best Shot artist goes all in at full speed.
Lately, Jimmie Allen hears the call to Indianapolis once more. Fans recall that the motor city Mecca welcomed the Down Home singer-songwriter back in 2021, as Country Music Alley covered. Allen was the chosen singer for the national anthem to open the Indy 500.
Well, Indianapolis summons Jimmie Allen again, and he’s taking the call very seriously. This time, the sensation of highly-polished lanes and the feel of just the right ball snuggled against the gloved hand harkens Jimmie Allen to the city. He won’t be alone. As Yahoo News confirms, Jimmie Allen joins LA Dodgers outfielder, Mookie Betts, for the PBA’s U.S. Open.
As Jimmie Allen’s faithful fans know, he can make any event feel like a party. Still, when the dust settles, Jimmie Allen is out for his share of strikes, and his name at the top of the leaderboard and the charts.
Bowling is serious business for Jimmie Allen
While Jimmie Allen loved bowling from his youth and as the perfect diversion while on the road, the singer-songwriter is passionate about being a professional bowler now, as he verified to Bobby Bones last summer. Since then, Jimmie Allen hosted his own PBA Challenge, pairing with fellow country music brother Chris Young and elite young up-and-comers with an appetite for crushing pins and contenders.
Naturally, Jimmie Allen never holds back on his passion for the sport or his disdain for anyone or anything that promotes it halfheartedly. The dedicated musician and dad declared in a November Tweet that “If pins have strings and facility doesn’t have a Pro shop, it ain’t a real bowling center.”

Even so, nothing keeps Jimmie Allen from a little practice on the lanes while he still pleases fans on stage. He’s not the only one in the family who wants more practice.
Jimmie’s son wasn’t ready to sing
Dad Jimmie Allen falls back on fun times fishing or bowling with his kids on breaks from performing. However, when it came to putting his eight-year-old son, Aadyn, on his Tulip Drive album, the son adamantly declared that he wasn’t ready.
Quite proudly, Jimmie Allen related to Jennifer Hudson last fall that is boy was a “great dancer,” noting that his mom was a hip-hop dancer. Jimmie elaborated that using a voicemail from Aadyn on the song, You Won’t Be Alone was not okay with his son.
“Daddy, I was five then, now I’m eight. My voice was not mature then,” Aadyn protested. “How could you use that?” Nonetheless, the unrehearsed snippet from the heart makes the perfect insert to the song about family love and father-son bonds.
Let the song and dance begin
The practice sessions, pre-qualifying events, and Bowl with the Pros events commence on January 29 and run through the televised finals on February 5. Much to the fans’ delight, Jimmie Allen participates in this Sunday’s pre-qualifier events. Mookie Betts is part of the U.S. Open main field. Only time will tell if the baseball great delivers big among many big names in bowling. Certainly, Jimmy is sure to deliver intense emotion and a good time.
Constantly, Jimmie Allen is a man in motion, with many projects in the works. On March 24, viewers will see the fruits of his labor for AppleTV+ with My Kind of Country. Together with Mickey Guyton and Orville Peck, Allen seeks to find more than immense talent. The team searches for artists who “break down barriers” in the country music world.

On top of everything else, Carrie Underwood reminds fans that she and Jimmie Allen are dancing for joy to pick up their Denim and Rhinestones Tour, running through December with a slew of shows at Resorts World Las Vegas.
Jimmie Allen declares that he never releases a song that he wouldn’t bet his career on, and so far, luminaries like the late, great Charley Pride, Jennifer Lopez, and Babyface, among many more, have been along on his ride. No matter if he’s bowling or making music to remember, Jimmie Allen strikes while he’s hot.
