Columbia State Community College welcomes Jake Hoot to the Cherry Theater on November 10 as part of the First Farmers Performance Series.

Don’t let his larger-than-life presence fool you. Jake Hoot may stand 6’6”, but the Season 17 Champion of NBC’s “The Voice” is just as genuine and sweet-natured as ever. Following his record-breaking win on NBC’s “The Voice,” Hoot has gone on to release several tracks including, “Tennessee Strong,” which reached Top 10 in the iTunes Country Singles chart, debut single, “Dangerous Thing,” special Father’s Day song, “Best Job I Ever Had,” heartwarming love song, “Nadine,” rowdy summer anthem, “Night Left,” and most recently a duet with his wife, “Wherever Time Goes.” Drawing inspiration from his childhood in the Dominican Republic, Hoot released a cover of “La Bamba” from his debut EP which landed in the Top 10 on the iTunes Latin charts.

“This will be a fun show!” said Bethany Lay, Columbia State vice president for advancement and executive director of the Columbia State Foundation. “We are celebrating 20 seasons of the Performance Series and invite everyone to just come out for an enjoyable time.”

Individual tickets are on sale for $30 each plus tax for adults and $20 each plus tax for Columbia State students. To charge tickets by phone using a major credit card, call 931.540.2879 or purchase them in person in Room 113 of the Pryor Administration Building on the Columbia Campus, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
