Cedar Falls native, Jay Allen, caught national attention for his appearance on the popular singing competition, The Voice, back in September. You might remember watching this performance.

Since his time spent on the show, he's been a pretty busy guy. He was planning a wedding in Florida, on Oct 1, which he had to reschedule due to hurricane Ian.

He got to spend time at the Country Music Awards in November, and he did eventually have a wedding, as he got married in November. Pretty busy if you ask me. It appears Jay has also been working on making music. He recently asked his 100 thousand followers if he should release this song.

*WARNING* This could make you cry and will hit you in all of your feelings.

I'm not crying, my eyes are just itchy and I have allergies. Are you freaking kidding me, Jay Allen? Why would you not release this?! This has the potential to be one of the biggest songs of 2023. Yes, absolutely release this, please. 

He also let his fans know that since thousands of people commented on this released clip, he's going to release this other song on February 10!
