“I had so much fun catching up with Keith! He has a way of pulling
personal stories out of me that I normally wouldn’t think to tell, along
with some of my biggest career highlights,” says Deborah Allen. “Maybe
that’s because we’re such big buddies! We go way back!”
Along with finding success herself as a solo artist, the critically
acclaimed singer has penned more than 1,600 compositions for hundreds of
artists, including smash hits by LeAnn Rimes, Brooks & Dunn, Patty
Loveless, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker, Janie Fricke, John Conlee, Isaac
Hayes, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Fleetwood Mac and more. She would
later find success of her own, hitting the charts with unique songs like
“I’ve Been Wrong Before,” “I Hurt For You,” “Rock Me,” “If You’re Not
Gonna Love Me,” “Wrong Side Of Love,” “Break These Chains” and her
signature song, “Baby I Lied.”
Deborah continues to tour throughout North America, after recently
wrapping up her 2015 “Nothing But the Hits Tour.” She kicked off 2016
performing on the SOLD-OUT Country Music Cruise, which ported from Ft.
Lauderdale, Fla. Be on the lookout for more details to come!
About Deborah Allen:
Deborah Allen is one of those rare artists who forged their own path
to success and ended up building a world-class career in the process. An
extraordinarily talented singer, songwriter, producer and performer,
Deborah’s unique abilities as an artist may be matched only by her
enthusiasm and creativity as an individual. It is that formidable
combination of spirit and talent that keeps the Grammy-nominated
entertainer in demand.
In some ways, “Baby I Lied” confirmed the idea that an artist could
have success in different formats with the same song – a precedent that
would prove to be years ahead of the crossover trends of today. “Baby I
Lied” not only appealed to Country and Pop radio listeners, earning
multiple Million Air-Play Awards in the process, but it also resulted in
a pair of Grammy nominations for the Delta songstress – one as a
vocalist and one as a songwriter.
Throughout her phenomenal journey of hits and accomplishments in
every facet of her career, Deborah Allen remains true to her vision.
From her discovery by Roy Orbison, to her friendship with Shel
Silverstein, her work with Prince, Deborah creates art entirely on her
own terms. With a distinguished career built on success after success as
a performer, songwriter and producer, the dynamic Delta singer from
Memphis, Tennessee, has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. That’s
simply not Deborah Allen’s style.
