Jake Worthington is a true country kid who loves fishing, mudding and four-wheeling in his free time. He broke his back playing football and had to take it easy for a few months, which allowed him to discover his true passion: music. He ended up winning America’s heart as the runner-up on Season 6 of NBC’s The Voice with coach Blake Shelton.
We are very pleased to announce that Jake Worthington will join us on Country Music’s #CMchat for an hour long Twitterview on Monday October 12 starting at 6pPT/9pET. We’ll talking about what he’s been up to since the Voice, advice that Blake gave him and his new self-titled EP!

MORE ABOUT JAKE WORTHINGTON (from his itunes bio)
Born March 1, 1996 and raised in La Porte, Texas, country singer Jake Worthington had a true country kid childhood, developing a love of fishing, mudding, and four-wheeling, and of course, sports, which in turn led him to music after he broke his back playing football. While laid up from the injury, Worthington discovered his passion for music, particularly for traditional and neo-traditional country, and blessed with the perfect, tuneful Texas drawl of a singing voice, he set about building a professional career. After not making it out of the blind audition for season five of the reality talent show The Voice in 2013, Worthington returned to audition for season six in 2014, this time making the cut, ending up on Blake Shelton’s team, and placing second by the show’s finale, slipping in traditional country songs by Keith Whitley, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, and others along the way. Earning a fervent fan base through his exposure on The Voice, he returned home to Texas, still only 18 years old, to officially graduate from high school. A debut digital download single, “Heaven,” was released in May of 2014. ~ Steve Leggett

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
