“On My Way” comes on the heels of Allen’s No.1 single “Freedom Was A Highway” with Brad Paisley and recent release “In Our Blood” with Dylan Scott. “On My Way,” penned by Ivy Adara, Leroy Clampitt, and Michael Pollack is one of many collaborations on the forthcoming third studio album.
Within the robust soundtrack – listeners will hear Allen let down his guard, as he pulled from real-life experiences to cultivate the raw and family-centric collection.
“This is the first [album] where I chose to write songs about my own personal experiences, thoughts, and hopes,” shared Allen in a statement.
The title “Tulip Drive,” was inspired by the street his late grandmother grew up on. Allen’s debut record “Mercury Lane,” was named after the street he lived on as a child. The “Down Home” singer also honored his grandmother [Bettie Snead] and late father [James “Big Jim” Allen] in his 2020 and 2021 releases, “Bettie James” and “Bettie James Gold Edition.”
Come Fall, the multi-platinum recording artist will be bringing his impressive catalog out on the road with Underwood on The Denim & Rhinestones Tour. The genre-bending artist is currently on his first solo headline trek and will wrap up his run at the second annual Bettie James Fest in August. Tickets to the festival are on sale now, here.
