Jake Ward Tour
While a college student in his hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, Jake Ward cut a demo of a song he wrote in his dorm room, “Hit the Road.” The demo made its way onto local radio stations, eventually becoming one of the top 100 songs on Texas radio in 2014. While in college, Jake and the band began touring throughout Texas and developed a reputation for high energy live shows, blending classic country with contemporary rock and rich harmonies.
Jake Ward has accumulated over 1.5 million on-demand streams, and has 5 consecutive #1 songs on Texas regional radio. Jake and the band released their debut album, "Love Don't Live Here," in 2015. “Take my Hand,” a single off the record, was the first #1 song on Texas radio in March 2016, and quickly became a fan favorite. “Take my Hand” was picked up by country radio stations in Germany, France, Sweden and Ireland.
Increasingly successful singles followed including “Lonely Street,” #1 September 2016, “Restless,” #1 September 2017, and “Not too Far to Reach,” #1 February 2018.
In July 2019, Jake released his 2nd full length album, “Back on Solid Ground,” with the first single off the record, “Put You Down Tomorrow,” becoming the 5th #1 single on Texas radio.
Growing up, Jake was surrounded by diverse musical influences. He fondly recalls sitting in the back seat of the car listening to Elvis, the Beach Boys, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, George Strait, the Backstreet Boys, and other performers from many eras and musical traditions. Exposure to diverse musical styles has influenced Jake’s songwriting, live performance, and recordings. His great grandfather was a legendary fiddle player in rural Oklahoma during the depression, and his maternal grandparents were missionaries who taught and recorded music. Jake performed for the first time at the age of 7 at church, and by age 10 had participated in several local musicals in Corpus Christi.
Jake Ward headlines shows throughout Texas and plays with many of the biggest names in country music.
