Jay Allen, has released a music video for his latest single, "No Prayer Like Mama's." The emotional video, directed by Tessa and Dustin Sturm and produced by Southern Pictures.

In the video, Jay is seen singing by an altar filled with candles and a picture of his mother, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2019. The heartwarming video features clips of mothers cheering on their children during tee-ball games and walking them down the aisle, depicting the unconditional love that a mother has for her children.

Written by Jay Allen and Justin Morgan, "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 track is available across all streaming platforms here.

Jay comments, "That process was a difficult journey, but now I find strength in believing that my mom is 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 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, ultimately leading 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 has raised over $100 million for the Alzheimer’s 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.”
