The Voice season 17 winner and country singer/songwriter Jake Hoot releases his debut EP, Love Out Of Time.
The five-track project features a duet, “I Would’ve Loved You,” with his The Voice coach Kelly Clarkson. Produced by hit songwriter/producer Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Maddie & Tae), Jake’s debut project features four original songs as well as a recently released cover of “La Bamba” featuring fellow season 17 The Voice contestant Ricky Duran as the lead guitarist, along with 8 other fellow contestants.
The singer collaborated with an all-star lineup of musicians and songwriters for Love Out Of Time including Dean Sams (Lonestar), Myrick, Jenne Fleenor (CMA Award-winning musician), Dave Pahanish (Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith), Jamie Floyd (Ingrid Andress, Lucie Silvas, Ashley Monroe)
Love Out Of Time is currently No. 3 on the iTunes All-Genre Albums Chart and No. 2 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart.
Jake thanks his fans in an Instagram post: “Thank you to each and every one of you who preordered, presaved, bought a cd, and has supported me through all of this! If I could write out what this album means to me, it would take more than the character limit that Instagram allows. But I will tell you that myself, my family, my team, producer, writers, studio band, and so many others poured so much of ourselves into this project, and its surreal that it’s finally out! I hope and pray that you love it as much as I do! Please keep downloading the album, and lets get it to #1!!! Thank you for making this big guy’s dream a reality. Love all y’all!”
