  CAM ALLEN - Dive Bar - G.O.A.T. Entertainment, LLC.

Country music’s newest breakup ballad is coming courtesy of a name unknown by some, but recognized by industry reps, musicians, and fellow artists as a bright young star with the potential to take the genre by storm.  “Dive Bar”, the latest tune from Oklahoma singer-songwriter Cam Allen, is available digitally and on all streaming platforms now.

Working with some top-notch names in the industry, Cam wrote the tune along with Ryan Follese and it was produced by Grammy-award winner Kenny Greenberg.  The result is a rootsy, traditionalist’s take on a modern-day heartbreaking tale of love lost. 

“This is the first project we have worked on in Nashville, teaming up with some of music’s best folks I’ve had the pleasure of meeting,” Allen said.  “I’m really looking forward to sharing it with y’all.  It’s something I’m genuinely proud of and can’t wait for everyone to hear.”

From start to finish, Cam croons his way through a story of coping with the end of a relationship at a dive bar.  The comfort of a room full of others feeling alone is explored via the memories and emotions we have all experienced in the trials and tribulations of heartbreak.  It’s an honest, vulnerable, down-to-earth perspective on a common theme, with Cam’s gifted vocals and musicianship taking center stage as he swoons his way through the evocative lyrics.  “Dive Bar” is a true, genuine country song to its core, and one that will earn the praise of fans and respect of the industry.

Allen’s music has been a viral sensation across all social media platforms.  His single “Lake Days” tallied nearly 500,000 Spotify streams and over 236,000 streams on Youtube, with the music video for the tune premiering on and The Country Network, among others.  “Missin’ You” nearly eclipsed 460,000 Spotify teams while hitting 11 million views on TikTok.  In all, the Oklahoma native’s music has been streamed over 3 million times his two aforementioned singles climbed into the Top 50 on MusicRow Magazine’s Country Breakout Radio chart.

As 2023 winds down, Cam is following up his extended runs with Carly Pearce and Dwight Yoakam on their respective tours with the release of a brand-new single, leaving the country music world thirsty for more music as the calendar turns to 2024.  With a career-changing year drawing to a close, along with an ever-building team behind him and a growing musical catalogue of high-quality music, the future looks very bright for Cam Allen.
