Tulip Drive, the third album released by mega-star Jimmie Allen, derives it’s name from the street his grandmother lived on in Lewes, Delaware. That home holds a lot of memories for Jimmie. “This is the first where I chose to write songs about my own personal experiences, thoughts and hopes,” he recollects. It’s a fitting tribute for what turns out to be an excellent album.
A couple of weeks ago, Jimmie Allen previewed some of the tracks appearing on Tulip Drive. By far the standout is “Down Home”. The song is a tribute to Jimmie’s father James, who passed away in 2019. “I wrote it about my father – kind of like, hopefully he’s in heaven and looking down on everything I’m doing and hope he’d be proud of me,” Jimmie says of “Down Home”. It’ll definitely pull at your heartstrings. Also released was “Settle On Back”, a reflective track on the joys of taking it easy. “On My Way” features a surprise appearance of Jennifer Lopez. The pair first met during American Idol, when J.Lo was a judge and Jimmie was a contestant! Her voice takes a gentle turn which pairs well with Jimmie’s power.
Tulip Drive is packed with 14 other awesome tracks. In “Be Alright”, Jimmie sings about positive self-talk and finding your peace. There’s “Habits & Hearts”, a powerful piano ballad highlighting the struggle between difficult choices. “Keep Em Coming” is about chasing the good times.
