It’s no secret that Jimmie Allen likes to keep things interesting at his shows, but he definitely threw us a curveball last night at Whisky River.
Here’s what happened. A few days prior to the show, I was listening to Allen’s music on my phone, and I came across “Back Of Your Mind.”
Admittedly, I hadn’t heard it before, but I instantly fell in love with the song. Off the MERCURY LANE record, “Back Of Your Mind” will definitely strike a chord with a lot of people.
Yesterday, before the show, I tweeted that I hoped Jimmie would sing the song live — And to my surprise, he did!
Have you heard? @JimmieAllen is in #CLT! That's definitely gonna #makemewantto go to @whiskyriverclt! See what I did there? ???? I’m hoping he's gonna perform "Back Of Your Mind” too! ???? Join @country1037fm, me, and of course Jimmie tonight for a FREE show! https://t.co/0TryZ9VtO1— QC Writer (@QCwriter) June 26, 2019
Before he switched gears, he said he saw the request on Twitter and hadn’t performed the song in about a year.
If you’ve ever wondered if country stars read the social posts they’re tagged in, this story is proof that they do!
