Jake Celebrates CD Release in Missouri
On May 21st, Jake Clayton celebrated the release of his debut cd, 'Barnyard Stomp' with a headlining show in his former hometown of Mexico, Mo. Jake brought with him a band of Nashville musicians along with special guests Cali Tucker (daughter of Lacosta Tucker), Troy Luccketta (drummer from multi platinum rock band 'Tesla') and newcomer Ashley Norton. The event was well received as 400 tickets were sold to the concert, showing that Jake has ALOT of support in the town where he first started playing music. Mexico's KWWR Country 96 was on site to cover the event with live interviews. Jake was also featured the day before on KWWR's New Country at Noon. Jake says about the event, "I had an amazing time introducing my new music and new band to a town of people that have watched me grow as a person and a musician. I appreciate all the support everyone in that area has given me through the years and I hope to continuously bring back more unique shows for them in the future". Jake Clayton will be doing a few select shows with his band this summer but most of his time will be spent on this year's Brad Paisley tour with opening act, Sunny Sweeney.
