The excitement builds each week, the rounds come and go, then the moment you worked for arrives. Singer-songwriter Jake Worthington experienced that first hand as a member of Team Blake on Season 6 of “The Voice.”
Although he was runner-up, he made a grand impression. Jake’s sophomore EP, Hell of a Highway will become available on Friday, May 19, following his self-titled EP, which was released in October of 2015 and debuted at #16 on Billboard Heat Seekers.
Jake gained national media attention from the show by reaching Top 20 on Billboard Heat Seekers for his renditions of Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting” and Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes.” His first single off his debut EP, “Just Keep Falling in Love,” reached Top 50 on the Music Row Chart and Top 30 on the Texas Regional Radio Report, with the music video premiering on GAC and CMT, among others.
A native of La Porte, TX Jake spent his days fishing, mudding and playing sports. The Texas-native released his follow-up single, “How Do You Honky Tonk,” in the summer of 2016 and hit the road on the “How Do You Honky Tonk Summer Tour,” which was sponsored by Amspec, Cinch Jeans, and Ernie Ball.
Jake will join Texas Country mainstay Cody Johnson in his hometown of La Porte to celebrate his new release at the San Jacinto Monument on Friday, May 12. He continues his tour on the road, along with gearing up for the release of his sophomore EP, Hell of a Highway, on May 19, 2017, which is currently available for pre-order.
