Country artist Jay Allen has released a new single perfect for the summer titled “Jello Shot.” Released through ONErpm, the track is now available here.
This track is the ultimate windows-down experience that perfectly encapsulates the entertaining side of Allen’s music. With its captivating blend of guitar melodies and irresistible drum beats, “Jello Shot” represents a thrilling new dimension in Allen’s ever-evolving musical journey.
Setting the stage for his new track, Allen comments, “’Jello Shot’ was born five years ago after an unforgettable night out with my now wife, Kylie Morgan. The very next morning, while driving to my writing session, inspiration struck, and with the help of my longtime producer, Micah Wilshire, we breathed life into this track. What you’re hearing now is the authentic creation from that very day in the studio—a song that irresistibly compels you to sing along and dance without inhibition. It surpasses the realm of just another summer tune; it encapsulates the sheer joy and pure exhilaration I haven’t experienced in my music for quite some time. My utmost wish is for this song to ignite an overwhelming sense of happiness in all who listen because, when all is said and done, life is simply too fleeting not to pause, have a little fun, and let loose like a JELLO SHOT!”
An official music video for “Jello Shot” has been shot and will be released in the coming days.
