Pop singer-songwriter Jake Scott take us into wild adventure with his brand new single ‘Texas Girl’
Penned by Scott and produced with Noah Conrad (Niall Horan, Ashe), the heartfelt, guitar-driven track is a love song about his wife Rachel. Scott hails from Arkansas – a state that rivals Texas – and ended up falling for a girl from there regardless. The pair’s love story was also showcased in a popular Jubilee episode in 2019 that resonated with fans nationwide.
Jake explains: “I grew up in Arkansas where an imaginary rivalry between Texas and us was a tale as old as time. Naturally, I never thought I’d end up with the enemy, a Texas girl. And then I met a girl named Rachel from Dallas, and I think anyone who knows anything about me knows the rest of the story – I fell head over heels for her instantly,” “This song is about the magic of that feeling. It’s the first single I’ve released in partnership with Elektra Records and the first of many upcoming releases this year. I hope you love it!”
Additionally, he will be hitting the road with indie hitmaker Ben Rector on The Joy of Music: Live U.S. tour this summer, which kicks off on Thursday, May 5 in Madison, Wisconsin. Scott will provide direct support for the first leg of dates, which wraps in Oklahoma City on Sunday, June 5. The full itinerary can be found below, with all tickets available on Scott’s official website. The forthcoming slew of shows follows Scott’s first-ever North American headline tour, which sold out in every city.
Beyond generating nearly 400 million global streams as an independent artist and touring non-stop – including a notable opening slot for LANY – his 2021 Goldenboy EP earned acclaim in the press and produced a stellar performance on KTLA. Furthermore, Scott collaborated with multi-platinum country star Russell Dickerson, who tapped him to feature on his track “She Likes It.”
Scott is gearing up for a massive 2022 and will be unveiling his first project with Elektra Records soon. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
