“I’m looking forward to the Down Home Tour, my first ever headlining tour. I wanted to wait awhile before headlining because I wanted the timing to be right, I didn’t want to rush it. I wanted to make sure I was ready, my band was ready, so we could give the audience what they deserve every night – which is greatness,” Allen said of the announcement. “And I finally feel like my band and I are at a point where greatness is something we can achieve. To everyone that’s supported us so far on our journey, thank you. We look forward to seeing you and a bunch of our new friends on the Down Home Tour.”
Joining Allen on the road are special guests Neon Union. Comprised of Leo Brooks & Andrew Millsaps, the duo is the inaugural artist signed to JAB Entertainment, a full-service management and production company launched by Allen alongside partners John Marks and Aaron Benward.
