Jimmie Allen Is Giving It His ‘Best Shot’ When It Comes to Raising a Three-Year-Old Son
In his debut country radio single, "Best Shot," budding country star Jimmie Allen sings about his imperfections and the challenges that he has faced when things didn’t turn out exactly as planned.
He's not just blowing smoke — the lyrics are true to his life.
In a new interview with Taste of Country Nights' Sam Alex, Allen opens about his 3-year-old son, Aiden, and how he wasn’t able to work it out with his son's mom. "We are good friends," Allen explains. “When you are dating, sometimes things work out and sometimes they don’t ... but at the end of the day, it's about being friends and being there for our son, which we both are."
Allen also recruits his mom to help take care of Aiden while he is out on the road, bringing country music to the masses.
"My family is super important to me," he admits. "How I grew up and where I came from is super important."

Indeed, you can see that in the video for "Best Shot," which includes a slew of pics of his family and from growing up. Unfortunately, the old school technology ended up confusing little Aiden.
“He's used to these phones where you can zooming on everything, so I handed him a picture of me as a kid and he was like, ‘Dad, is that you?'" recalls Allen, who also discusses his son’s adventures in potty training in the interview.
"So, he takes the picture and puts his finger on it and tried to open and expand on it," he adds, laughing. "He couldn’t understand why he couldn’t get closer.”
