Trailblazing independent record label Big Loud Records is adding a new member to its lineup, welcoming rising Country star Jake Worthington today (10/25).
Hailing from Texas and blessed with an authentic Country vocal that shines like neon, Worthington first impressed fans as a finalist on Season 6 of NBC’s The Voice in 2014, and now brings a big dose of honky-tonk swagger to the Big Loud roster that includes Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, Chris Lane, HARDY, Mason Ramsey, MacKenzie Porter, ERNEST, Ben Burgess, Ashland Craft, Larry Fleet, Sean Stemaly, Shawn Austin, Blame My Youth, and Lily Rose.
With over 8 MILLION on-demand streams and more than 230,000 social media followers to his credit, the traditionally minded talent is also signed to Big Loud for Publishing and Management and poised to make an immediate impact.
“We’re excited to welcome Jake Worthington to the Big Loud Records family,” Partner/CEO Seth England says. “He’s been putting in the work to build his own authentic brand of Country music, and we’re looking forward to teaming up to get his sound on the map.”
“One more piece to the Jake Worthington puzzle has been put down, but it’s not finished,” Manager Troy “Tracker” Johnson shares. “Big Loud Records can’t wait to assist Jake in making what will be the honky-tonk album this city has been waiting for.”
“Country music is all I’ve known for a long while,” Worthington adds. “It’s been my friend, helped me grow and granted me experience and opportunity. I’m honored to work alongside Big Loud Records and am grateful to have a team who wants me to just do what I do — Country music. It’s a different feeling knowing that everyone around me believes the music I make has its place in Country music. A guy couldn’t ask for more.”
Out this Friday (10/29), Worthington makes his debut as a Big Loud artist. He’ll be featured alongside Country hitmakers Ronnie Dunn and Jake Owen on “Jonesin’” in the latest installment of HIXTAPE: Vol. 2, and there’s more on the way.
Looking ahead, the singer-songwriter will continue working on a fresh blast of original music with chart-topping co-writers like Craig Wiseman, Ernest Keith Smith, Tony Lane and more, and is also building toward a series of milestone tour stops.
With more than a dozen dates lined up through the end of the year, Worthington will crisscross Texas and beyond before visiting The Chelsea in Las Vegas, Nevada (12/4), Ace of Spades in Sacramento, California (12/10) and Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma (12/17).
