"IRS" Mike Rotunda


Allen is the youngest brother of two well-known Country Music artists.  His elder brother is the iconic Country Music legend, Lefty Frizzell. Known as the most influential Country Music vocalist of all time, Lefty laid a foundation for the many generations of Country Music performers that followed him. And fourth -oldest brother, David Frizzell, the Grammy-nominated, Academy of Country Music (ACM) and Academy of Country Music (CMA) award winner, as well as two-time Song-of –the-Year honors recipient.  Since the early 1950’s the Frizzell brothers have been prominent on the music charts as artist and songwriters, having songs recorded by George Jones , Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Keith Whitely, Alan Jackson and even pop artist Jewel.

Like Lefty and David, Allen is more than a great vocalist. He is also a talented musician and producer who truly captures the emotion of a song. Additionally, Allen is an outstanding songwriter who earned Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI’s) prestigious
Million-Air performance award, BMI’s official recognition of achievement in American Music.

Allen started his musical journey at the age of 19, singing and playing guitar with his two older brothers. Allen soon realized he should forge his own path musically. Having recently become a Christian and on fire for the Lord, he felt the call to sing
Gospel Music. He proudly put together a three-piece band ministering around California but with little encouragement, he began to follow in his older brother’s footsteps singing Country Music and began working the West Coast. It soon paid off!
Allen opened a show for Dottie West who, impressed with his talent, insisted he move to Nashville and work for her. Not many years later, Allen signed with MCA and Sony Records as a recording artist appearing on numerous well known TV shows and working with some of the biggest names in the business.

These day’s Allen is celebrating success in a different genre, Christian Country Music. He has celebrated numerous awards along with several #1 songs since the release of his first Christian Country CD in 2007. Allen is humbly grateful for the success he has received in Christian Country Music, but he will proudly tell you that this is not why he does what he does; as from the heart he states, “It’s all about HIM, not about me.” Allen tours across the USA each year sharing his testimony and music at churches , corporate & special events.
