Allie released her debut single “Work in Progress” and is currently working on her first full album. “The meaning of ’Work in Progress.’ It’s like, we don’t have it figured out. God knows what’s gonna happen in the future, but I know what’s happening right now. And I know that we’re ready,” the rising star shared while on The Bobby Bones Show.
“When I walked in the studio that day with Marcus and Greg, Marcus already had the entire song structure minus the chorus when we all sat down. For the first time, I wasn’t worried about how commercial the song was or what everyone else was going to think about the song. I was just honest,” Allie shared about her co-writers in a press request. “I think that is why we are so proud and excited to let you all in on who we are, as a work in progress.”
Besides launching her career, Allie tied the knot with her longtime love Jonathan Roberts on October 6, 2018. Jonathan is a physical education teacher based in Tennessee. A new marriage, new home, and new song— a lot has changed for this singer-songwriter!

Allie Colleen Brooks with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood“When she does a Garth Brooks song, it makes me feel proud, but I also hate the fact that she does it better than I do,” Garth Brooks shared with a chuckle. “I hate that, because she’s real intelligent on the guitar as well. Real great about melody.”
