    On New Year’s Day in 2013, Kris Allen and his then-pregnant wife Katy were in a head-on collision that left the singer/songwriter/guitarist with a career-threatening shattered wrist. In the two years that followed, he underwent three surgeries, relearned how to play guitar (despite regaining just 30 percent movement in the damaged wrist), recorded his third album, and toured relentlessly – including a two month- long stint that started just one week after his accident. The American Idol season 8 winner ultimately retreated from the whirlwind and immersed himself in a songwriting spell that yielded more than 70 new tracks. Culled from the collection of songs, Allen’s fourth full-length album “Letting You In” finds the Nashville-based artist delivering his most intimate and dynamic work to date. The follow-up to 2014’s “Horizons,” “Letting You In” builds off the soulful musicality Allen first showcased with his platinum-selling 2009 single “Live Like We’re Dying,” but with its sophisticated song craft and vulnerable lyrics, “Letting You In” reaches a new depth of feeling that infuses each track with undeniable emotional power.
