Rising country star Jimmie Allen's "Best Shot" lifts 3-1 in its 40th week on Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated Nov. 24) and, for the third time in 2018, an artist's debut chart entry tops the tally. The song increases by 4 percent to 42 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen Music.
"Best Shot," which Allen wrote with Josh London and JP Williams, is the freshman single from his first LP, Mercury Lane, which debuted and peaked at No. 11 on Top Country Albums (Oct. 27) following its Oct. 12 release. The 32-year-old Allen named the album after the street on which he grew up in Delaware, but the songs on the LP serve as more of a letter to his 4-year-old son, Aiden, to help guide him through life -- and "Best Shot" is a perfect example of that.
