Jake McVey

Music has the power to move the masses and few artists understand that better than Iowa's own, Jake McVey.

Growing up on the family farm, McVey learned the value of hard-work and dedicating yourself to your goals at an early age. This strong work ethic has made him a relentless road dog who performs nearly 300 dates a year. McVey has earned a loyal fan base that's addicted to his fiery stage show and arsenal of ear-grabbing songs.

Not only is Jake's touring lifestyle a testament to his perseverance, most of the guitars he uses on stage were personally hand-built from scratch. This dedication to his craft has earned McVey a nomination for Best New Country Artist by New Music Weekly Magazine in 2016, as well as a Top Touring Act nod from Billboard Magazine.

Jake McVey's current single, Back Seat, can be heard on Country Music Radio internationally.
