Hear Me Now includes Allen's current single, the danceable Country-shuffle "Anything Other Than Love," which continues its steady climb up the Music Row chart. The 12 songs on the album reflect Allen's overall versatility as a singer and songwriter, as well as her trademark ability to incorporate elements of Country, Blues, Pop, Rock and Gospel into a cohesive piece of art. Allen also produced nine of the album's 12 tracks.
"Each song on Hear Me Now is a musical journey, and together they make one of my favorite collections of music I have ever released," says Allen. "I know it's been a while since my last record, so I thought it would be appropriate for my new album to be called Hear Me Now. When you are listening to these songs, know that you are listening to a little piece of my heart!"
Allen is accompanied on Hear Me Now by some of Nashville finest songwriters and musicians, including Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member Gary Burr ("Anything Other Than Love" co-writer), and nominee Gary Nicholson, 12-time ACM Guitarist of the Year and two-time CMA Musician of the Year Brent Mason, ACM Keyboard Player of the Year Michael Rojas, ACM Guitarist of the Year Brent Rowan and legendary songwriter/producer Bobby Braddock, who produced three songs on the album ("All That I Want," "Last Time For Everything," "What Makes A Woman"). Marty Stuart drummer Harry Stinson, former Shenandoah vocalist Curtis Wright and Pebe Sebert also contribute material as songwriters on Hear Me Now. "Deborah is singing better than ever, which is saying a lot!" says Braddock. "'Anything Other Than Love' is one of the best Country singles in years. It just keeps rockin' my brain!"
