Pop singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Jake Scott is gearing up for a busy 2022 with the release of his 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.
“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,” explained Jake. “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!”
Jake Scott will be hitting the road with 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 upcoming shows follow Scott’s first-ever North American headline tour, which sold out in every city.
