Jake Hoot debuts the music video for his latest single, “Night Left.”
Directed by Taylor Ballantyne, The Voice season 17 winner plays two roles in the video; a stern dad to a teenage daughter, and his real-life character as a rising country star in the performance scenes.
According to the press release, Jake had a pivotal part in writing the treatment for the comedic video. Shot in the singer’s hometown of Cookeville, Tennessee, the local Putnam County police department dispatched their officers to break up the party scene where Jake (in his role as the artist), gets cuffed.
Since its July 23 release, “Night Left” has racked up more than 200K streams and has landed editorial placement on Spotify’s Country Rocks, Fresh Finds: Country and New Music Nashville, Apple Music’s New in Country and Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Country.
Written by Jake, Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw) and Kylie Sackley (Sam Hunt, Randy Houser) and produced by Myrick, Jake’s The Voice mentor, Kelly Clarkson calls the upbeat song “Country-Rock gold.”
