Chanteur US né John Allen Guillot, le 10 mars 1938 à Rayne (Louisiane). Johnnie Allan, Cajun véritable, ne parla que le français jusqu'à 6 ans et débuta à 13 ans comme guitariste d'accompagnement des "Scott Playboys" de Walter Mouton. Johnnie a enregistré pour Jin, Viking, MGM, Mercury, Pic et Crazy Cajun Records. Il arrêtera la musique en 1967 pour se consacrer à ses examens universitaires. Les ayant réussis, il était à nouveau sur les routes en 1969. Johnnie Allan était adjoint de l'"Acadian Elementary School" de Lafayette (Louisiane).

Johnnie Allan's been a prominent Cajun performer since his teens, when joined accordionist Lawrence Walker's band as a steel guitarist. When the band split, Allan teamed with pianist/fiddler U.J. Meaux, producer Huey Meaux's cousin, in the Krazy Kats, a rock band. Allan continued singing rock and roll and R&B in the late '50s and early '60s. He alternated between music and education for a while, at one point even becoming principal of an elementary school. But his popularity soared when his Cajun-flavored cover of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land" became a hit. Allan's style mixes rock flamboyance with Cajun authenticity, and has been featured on many regional labels.
