Jimmie Allen is a Self-Taught Talent

January 15th 2019

Jimmie Allen wanted to be a musician, but unfortunately money for lessons was an issue when he was growing up, so he just taught himself. His mom bought him a drum kit and he taught himself how to play. She would let him stay for a couple of hours after church so he could practice playing the piano and he also taught himself how to play guitar. Jimmie says he didn't really sing until he was 16 and he practiced by singing songs by artists that he liked. Jimmie grew up listening to country and Christian music.
