Jake Hoot returns to Mitchell Opera House in concert at 7 p.m. Feb. 25.
The Season 17 champion of NBC’s “The Voice” released a new project, Love Out Of Time. The five-song EP features musicians and songwriters including Dean Sams, Danny Myrick, Jenne Fleenor, Dave Pahanish, Jamie Floyd and others. The new project also features a duet with Kelly Clarkson titled “I Would’ve Loved You.”
Upon its release, Love Out Of Time reached No. 2 on both the iTunes All-Genre Albums and Country Albums chart while “I Would’ve Loved You” reached No. 3 on the iTunes Country Singles Chart.
Hoot and Clarkson also unveiled a music video for the “I Would’ve Loved You” duet which has accumulated more than 8 million views, been featured on The Today Show with Hoda & Jenna and is in broadcast rotation on CMT.
The former contestant and coach recently reunited to perform “I Would’ve Loved You” on The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Voice semifinals.
Following his win on NBC’s The Voice, Hoot has gone on to release several tracks including “Tennessee Strong,” which reached Top 10 in the iTunes Country Singles chart, debut single “Dangerous Thing,” special Father’s Day song, “The Best Job I Ever Had,” love song, “Nadine” and summer anthem “Night Left.”
Drawing inspiration from his childhood in the Dominican Republic, Hoot released a cover of “La Bamba” from his debut EP which landed in the Top 10 on the iTunes Latin charts.
Hoot’s first original holiday track “When Christmas Has Come And Gone” featuring multiplatinum Canadian trio The Tenors, was released Nov. 19.
Growing up as the second of nine siblings to missionary parents, the Texas native lived in Oklahoma, Haiti, and an 11-year stint in the Dominican Republic where he first learned to play guitar. Fluent in Spanish, he credits his diverse musical influence to his time on the island.
The singer/songwriter relocated to Tennessee at 20 years old where he began gigging and attended Tennessee Tech University as a walk-on football player.
During his stint on The Voice, Hoot created a charitable merchandise line and was able to donate more than $15,000 to local organizations in his hometown of Cookeville, Tenn.
He is performing dates across the U.S. every weekend including opening slots for Alabama, Darius Rucker, Jordan Davis, Big & Rich and Rodney Atkins.
He has amassed more than 10 million streams, nearly 90K downloads and is gearing up for his 10th Grand Ole Opry performance.
