Jake McVey was born in Washington, Iowa. His family, who supported themselves as farmers, lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Burlington in his youth. McVey grew up in a musical household -- his father played drums, his mother played piano, and the family’s stereo played everything from the Beatles to Johnny Cash

At the age of 19, he decided to make music his career and pulled up stakes, heading to Nashville, Tennessee. While McVey had established a growing business building guitars, his love of performing won out, and in 2006 McVey released his first album, Unknown Highway.

His latest single is ‘Never Give Up’
