Jay Allen went viral after releasing a song he wrote for his mother who passed away from early onset of Alzheimer’s, titled “Blank Stares”. At several shows Jay would bring his mom up on stage with him while he performed the song he wrote about her journey and struggles. A fan filmed the moment and posted it to social media...within nine months the video had 300+ million views.
His story has been featured in People, Forbes, the Today Show and others.
His new single, "Lines", along with the video 'world premiered' on CMT, October 9, 2020. It is a very personal, meaningful song he wrote about his mother.
