Jimmie Allen Day was declared Aug. 13 at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach. Speaker of the House Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, D-Rehoboth Beach, presented Allen with a House of Representatives tribute recognizing his work for the Cape community. Schwartzkopf and Highway One owner Alex Pires spoke about Allen’s achievements over his career, rising from a local talent to having two No. 1 country songs.
“It’s a tribute recognizing his accomplishments,” said Schwartzkopf. “He’s a local man who has done good, and we’re very proud of him.”
“Jimmie has given so much back to our community,” said Highway One talent buyer/promoter Vikki Walls. “He will be coming back to do his annual Christmas show at the Rudder in December to benefit a Sussex County school.”
