Jimmy Allen Talks Grammy Nomination, Hosting the ACM Awards and More {WATCH}

Mickey Guyton filled in as host of “The Ellen DeGeneres” show on Thursday (March 3).

The four-time Grammy nominee welcomed fellow country artist Jimmie Allen to the show where they talked about his recent Grammy nomination.

Jimmie said it took a while to process his nod for Best New Artist. “Win or lose, they have to say Grammy-nominated.” he joked. “You start thinking about everything you sacrificed and worked hard for to get to that moment,” he added.

He also talked about his time on Dancing With the Stars and said his goal was to just make it Disney week.  Jimmie will co-host the ACM Awards Monday with Dolly Parton and Gabby Barrett and he has a new single “Down Home” coming out on the same day.

It’s “a song I wrote about my dad,” he said. “My dad introduced me to country music. He died in 2019.”
