We get a lot of music from new country artists. So much, that it would be impossible to post all of them. This one was not going to get pushed into the ‘slow news day’ pile. “If I Were You” is as good as most of the music we are hearing on country radio these days. Whenever I hear a song that I want to bookmark, and go to again and again – it’s a hit for me.
I watched the video a few times, and realized it wasn’t enough Jake Banfield for me. It was time to seek out more of his music. I visited his website and found a number of videos. Some were interesting, some were good, some were great. I think there are older ones, newer ones – a lot of choices to listen to. “Oceans Freestyle” is definitely not my cup of tea, but if you are into country/rap, you will mostly love this one. If you are like most country fans, and love a good story, set to a great melody, you will enjoy “Numb”. “Let It Go” was another of my favorites. It isn’t too difficult to see him growing musically from the older ones to the newer.
Run over to Jake’s website, where you can learn more about him, hear his music, and hook up with the social media links he has listed there. I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from Jake Benfield in the future. The press release we received today follows.
[Press Release] Country newcomer Jake Banfield has released TikTok viral single “If I Were You,” available on all digital retailers today. The new single has received a massive amount of attention and has reached over 1 million people with a viral TikTok.
“This song means a lot to me,” explains Jake. “I think a lot of people go through heartbreak and breakups and this is a song where I feel like we kept it as real and genuine as we felt in that room when we were writing it, where people will be able to feel the lyrics and the intensity of track… and it can hopefully help them get through whatever might be going on in their lives!”

Jake’s musical influences include Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Bruno Mars, Russ, and Justin Bieber. Best described as a little bit of pop country, a hint of alternative, and touch hip-hop, Jake’s versatility is what draws his diverse fan base from countries around the world.
Recently, Jake had a major cut by pop supergroup Anne-Marie & Little Mix titled “Kiss My (Uh-Oh).” His current collaborations include songwriters and producers from Nashville to L.A. to Europe, as well as his local producer and partner in music, Kellen Hines ‘aka’ Duane Wave
