‘The Voice’ Winner Jake Hoot Announces Duet With Kelly Clarkson

After winning Season 17 of The Voice, Jake Hoot is ready to make his mark in music, in a powerful way. The Tennessee native just announced the release of “I Would’ve Loved You,” from his upcoming Love Out Of Time EP, featuring his coach, Kelly Clarkson, on the song.

““I Would’ve Loved You’ is a song about the choices we make and the consequences that follow,” Hoot said in a statement about the song. “It is a story about someone who has so much love to give, but due to the other person’s decisions, that love turns into a hate that lasts forever. I am so honored to have written this song with Jamie Floyd and Dean Sams, who are both incredible writers. I am beyond thankful to Kelly Clarkson for believing in me and recording this song with me!”

Hoot also teased the song on social media, in advance of its release date later this month.

“The BIG news is finally here!” Hoot posted. “I am so excited to announce that the special guest on my upcoming EP release is the one and only [Kelly Clarkson]!  I can’t wait for you to hear and see the finished product on January 27!”

Hoot previously released “Better Off Without You,” which he wrote, and performed for The Voice finale. See a track list for Love Out Of Time below. The EP will be available for pre-order beginning on January 14, at JakeHoot.com.
