Hoot Released a New Single
Hoot released a single called “Night Left” in July 2019, and his former coach Kelly Clarkson had nothing but praise for the song.
“What a good time!” she tweeted. “@jakehootmusic’s new single is country-rock gold! #nightleft”
Clarkson and Hoot released a new song and music video together in January 2021.
“The BIG news is finally here!” Hoot wrote in the announcement. “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.”
For the music video for their song, Clarkson and Hoot teamed up for the emotional video.
The music video features the Los Angeles Wiltern Theatre’s elegance from the back of house to the front of the house.
“More than forever, always, madly / the deepest, unforgettable / With all that I am / with my heart wide open / for the rest of my life I promise you / I’m gonna hate you as long and as much as I would’ve loved you / and I would’ve loved you,” the pair sing at one point in the song.
