Jake Hoot is sharing his all-time favorite country duets in honor of his brand new single, “I Would’ve Loved You,” featuring Kelly Clarkson.
The Voice champion is taking over our playlist and he hand-picked iconic duets such as “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” by Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn and “Whiskey Lullaby” by Brad Paisley and Allison Krauss as well as fan-favorite collaborations like “I Hope You’re Happy Now” by Carly Pearce and Lee Brice and “Nobody But You” featuring Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani.
“Country duets have ALWAYS been one of my favorite things to listen to,” Hoot tells us, “From ‘Islands In The Stream’ to ‘I Need You,’ there are just so many incredible songs that are timeless!”
“I Would’ve Loved You” was co-written by Hoot alongside Jamie Floyd and Lonestar’s Dean Sams. The song, which appears on Hoot’s new EP, tells the story of the downfall of a relationship and how one mistake can ultimately change things forever.
“When we wrote this song, it was so apparent that it had to be a duet,” he shares. “When we started racking our brains as to who could sing on it, Kelly was easily the top and best choice for it. I’m just glad it all came together! And I hope y’all love it!”
