Callista Clarke, Jimmie Allen Team Up On ‘Wish You Wouldn’t’

Up-and-coming country artist Callista Clark has teamed up with Jimmie Allen for a reimagined version of her emotional song, “Wish You Wouldn’t.”

“You’ll pick up your phone / Thinkin’ you should call me up / Cause you’re wonderin’ how I’ve been / And you’ll say you’re still in love / Oh, I wish you wouldn’t / ‘Cause you know you shouldn’t / You’ll say you couldn’t help it / But you’re really bein’ selfish / So I wish you wouldn’t,” they sing in the chorus.

“Wish You Wouldn’t” was penned by Clark with Emily Falvey and Lalo Guzman. It originally featured on the singer’s debut album, Real To Me: The Way I Feel.

“Having Jimmie Allen on ‘Wish You Wouldn’t’ is a literal dream come true,” Clark shared in a press release. “He was the only person I wanted for that song-he brings such an effortlessly smooth charm to the song. I’m still ecstatic he said ‘yes’!”

“I love diving into all types of projects and experimenting with different artists so I was honored Callista asked me to jump on this song-I’m grateful to be a part of her journey,” added Allen. “We met out on the road years ago and she has become like a little sister to me. She is an incredible talent and I loved getting to play with the variation between the fast and slow vocals-it’s a fun song to sing.”
