The Voice winner Jake Hoot is a married man.
The “I Would’ve Loved You” singer wed Brittney Hoyt on Sunday, March 7. The couple exchanged vows at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee surrounded by family and friends.
Hoot and Hoyt wrote their own vows to each other as well as to Hoot’s 5-year-old daughter, Macy, according to People.
As a singer/songwriter, it was important for Hoot to incorporate music into the ceremony so he took to the spotlight to sing “Hallelujah,” a song he co-wrote with Kyndon Oakes, Renn and Lee Turner, for his bride during his vows.
“I got very emotional reading my vows to both Brittney and Macy and then singing a song to my soon-to-be wife talking about my journey with her,” Hoot shared with the publication.
Hoot and Hoyt added some special touches to their wedding day, including Ariat boots custom fitted for Hoot and his groomsmen and homemade desserts from Hoot’s sister.

The couple initially met as wedding singers at their best friend’s wedding about eight 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. Hoot surprised his now-wife by getting down on one knee in front of her closest family and his mother, Stacey.
″I knew how important being around family was to Britt, and with her birthday coming up, I knew it would be the perfect time to do it!″ Hoot previously told People. ″She’s one of seven, so arranging everyone to fly in and it still be a surprise was tough, but we all coordinated how it would happen, and it went off without a hitch!″
Hoot’s wife Brittney is a Labor and Delivery Nurse, the founder and director of international missions for Zeal Global at Zeal Church, as well as the Founder and Director of the nonprofit, The Radiant Initiative.
