Jake Hooker was born listening to the sounds of traditional country music through his father’s West Texas country band. Jake began playing the bass at age 7 and practiced diligently until he mastered the honky-tonk sound.

Jake formed his own band at the age of 14 and began performing. By the age of 18, he was playing bass and singing full time. He spent some time at South Plains College in Levelland, studying music and theory.

Jake moved to the Fort Worth area in 1998, where he quickly became the local favorite. He signed with Southland Records that same year and began recording.

His love and passion for traditional country music never cease. He feels it is necessary to relay that love to the fans who are so dedicated to it, as well.

Jake is consumed by his dedication to music, and his hobbies include playing the drums and learning the steel guitar.

Jake’s graceful and professional image on the bandstand,

along with his talented band, “The Outsiders,” including Rick Price on the steel guitar, Randy Elmore playing the fiddle, Jess Meador on the twin fiddle and two- and three-part harmony, and John Jenkins playing the drums, makes his show unbeatable.
