The country music industry was taken by surprise by the scandal, as it unfolded during the Academy of Country Music Awards in Texas. Although Allen was not scheduled to perform or receive any awards at the event, the suspension has resulted in the immediate halt of promotion for his new single, “Be Alright.”

The details of Allen’s suspension from BBR Music Group remain unclear, but it is evident that the label is ceasing the promotion of his music. This decision may be influenced by the slow start of his latest single at radio stations.
