We had the pleasure of interviewing Jay Allen Zoom video!

Country singer Jay Allen has released his latest single, "No Prayer Like Mama's," through ONErpm. The new single is a touching tribute to the strength and devotion of a mother's love and is available now on streaming services worldwide.

Inspired by Jay Allen's own journey, "No Prayer Like Mama's" is a tribute to the love and sacrifice of mothers. The song was born out of Allen's own experience of losing his mother to Alzheimer's disease and serves to honor the memory of all mothers who have dedicated their lives to their children, even in the face of adversity. The lyrics pay homage to the endless prayers that mothers offer for their children, from their earliest moments to when they've reached adulthood, capturing the beauty and power of that love that can transcend time and distance.

Allen spoke about the song, saying “’No Prayer Like Mama’s’ was written after grieving the loss of my own mother. That process was a difficult journey, but now I find strength in believing that she’s still with me. I hope this song brings honor to both mothers in heaven and those still with us.”

Growing up near Cedar Falls, Iowa, Allen was influenced by the music he heard from both his father at rock concerts and his mother, who would sing country tunes on long car rides. Allen attributes his love for country music to his mother, and it's what ultimately led him to move to Nashville in 2013. He signed a publishing deal in 2014 and an artist deal with SONY/ATV in 2016. With the release of "Sounds Good to Me" in 2017, Allen was selected as Sirius XM's "The Highway Find."

It was his 2018 hit "Blank Stares," a powerful tribute to his mother who suffered from early-onset Alzheimer's, that first caught the attention of national audiences. The song went viral, reaching over 500 million views on Facebook, and showcased Allen's raw talent and dedication to raising awareness for the Alzheimer's Association. As a result of his advocacy efforts, Allen has been involved with several international events, including the Rita Hayworth Gala, which have raised over $100 million for the Alzheimer’ Association and has received numerous accolades, including The Caregiver Award from the National Alzheimer's Association.

Allen has also been recognized for his music. He was named Favorite Competition Contestant at the 2022 Country Now Awards and featured in Music Mayhem Magazine's 2023 Artists to Watch.

With the release of his debut EP Bulletproof, which includes the single "Mustang on Mud Tires" featuring UMG country artist, co-writer, and now-wife Kylie Morgan (along with Nate Kenyon and Blake Bollinger) Allen continues to captivate audiences with his emotional and heartfelt music.
