On the heels of the release of his second single “Make Me Want To,” now in its fourth week at Country radio, and a first-time nomination this week for New Male Artist of the Year at the upcoming ACM Awards, country music breakout Jimmie Allen and fellow country newcomer Abby Anderson have released their own cover of the hit song “Shallow.” The GRAMMY and Golden Globe winning smash performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated film “A Star is Born” is up for “Best Original Song” at the 91stAcademy Awards ceremony airing this Sunday, February 24. The accompanying video shows a split screen of Allen and Anderson going about their daily lives before uniting in the studio to deliver the passionately soulful chorus together in perfect harmony. Watch the video here. “‘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,” shares 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,” says 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.”

Abby Anderson Joins Rob Thomas Tour
Abby Anderson will hit the road with Rob Thomas’ Chip Tooth Smile Tour. The tour will launch May 28 in Red Bank, New Jersey and will run through the summer, ending Aug. 4 in Connecticut. The tour will visit Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on July 9. Anderson, signed to Black River Entertainment, was named one of CMT’s 2018 Next Women of Country and released her debut single, “Make Him Wait.” Thomas is known for his work as leader of Matchbox Twenty, with hits including “Bent,” “If You’re Gone,” as well as his platinum-selling, three-time Grammy winning collaboration with Santana, “Smooth,” and solo hits including “Lonely No More.” Anderson joining a pop tour follows in a lengthy trend that it seems nearly every female country artist not named Miranda Lambert or Carrie Underwood has joined over the past year. Last year, Kacey Musgraves joined Harry Styles’ tour, while Maren Morris toured with Niall Horan, while Cam opened for British soul singer Sam Smith. This year, Kelsea Ballerini joined pop star (and occasional country crooner) Kelly Clarkson’s Meaning of Life tour. Tickets for the Chip Tooth Smile Tour go on sale to the general public go on sale Friday, March 1, at 10 a.m. local time. Click HERE for more information.
