In a recent interview with Cody Alan, Jimmy revealed that this is a career highlight. Not only is the rising country star nominated for ‘Breakthrough Video of the Year’ for his single, “Best Shot” but he is also performing and presenting on the award show stage which is has a much better view than what Jimmie experienced in the past.
Jimmie shared with Cody, “Two years ago, my buddy Trail worked for VH1 Save The Music and gave me a ticket. So, I watch it from the nosebleeds the first time. This is my second year going, and it's funny because we actually talked about that the other day… it’s my second year going, and now I am performing, presenting, and nominated.”
"Well, we got much better seats for you this year," laughed Cody.
Jimmie’s mom will be walking the red carpet alongside her son and shared that she had a few particular fashion requests.
"I have a stylist getting her some clothes, so my mom is all, 'Make sure you tell her I don't like to show my arms and I don't wear heels.' So, okay, I'm going to put you in some flip flops and a hoodie."
