Fans Showcased Their Excitement

Jake and Brittney welcomed their first child, Madilyn Bri, into the world on July 24, 2022.
“She’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever known. I never knew that my capacity to love someone could become so deep, and this profound,” Brittney shared in a post introducing their newborn daughter. “Everyone meet our little angel. She’s more than we ever dreamt of. We love you so much our little angel and can’t believe we get to love you forever!”

Previously Released A Duet
Jake Hoot and Brittney Hoot previously turned heads when they released a duet, “Wherever Time Goes.” It came as a surprise to fans as Brittney worked as a labor and delivery nurse at the time, however, the couple met through music and continue to share the same passion.
The lyrics of the tender song gently prompt listeners to take things at a more relaxed pace and savor each moment before it slips through their fingers.
“Wherever it takes me, whatever the road / I’ll be just fine if it’s your hand I hold / When that hourglass empties all that I know is I want you to be wherever time goes,” the married couple sing on the timeless ballad.
“I think, as we get older, we get in such a hurry and such a fast-paced mentality that we tend to let so many precious moments pass us by without even realizing that we let it happen,” Jake previously told Country Now of the meaning behind the track. “I think taking a step back and going, ‘You know what? Time is a gift and being such a special thing as it is, and having somebody special in your life – and the beauty about this song, is it can also be compared to being with your kids too and being happy about the moment – and going, ‘I have so much time left on this earth, and in this life, wherever that time goes, I want it to be with the people I love.’”
“It’s just been so fun getting to do a project with [Jake] and just be a part of this song,” Brittney added. “It’s such a beautiful song, and the message of it is something that I think is so much our story.”
Wed in 2021
Jake Hoot wed Brittney on March 7, 2021. They exchanged vows at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee surrounded by family and friends.
The couple initially met as wedding singers at their best friend’s wedding several years ago, where they sang “When God Made You” together during the first dance. The couple got engaged on September 20, 2020 during a trip to Brittney’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona.
