Good ol’ country boy Jake Worthington, who recently visited the Grand Valley to perform at Country Jam, will return for a Grand Junction show.

The country singer of “The Voice” fame will sing for fans at a show set to begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, at Central Station, 2993 North Ave.

Worthington was “professional shower singer” until the age of 17, when his mom convinced him to audition for “The Voice,” he said in a television interview with The Morning Show in Milwaukee earlier this year. (

The La Porte, Texas-native’s first blind audition on “The Voice” in 2013 didn’t turn one of the show’s famous judges, but he returned a year later for Season 6 and caught the attention of not only the judges but became an instant audience favorite.

He was the season’s runner up after winner Josh Kaufman, and YouTube sensation Christina Grimmie took third.

While on “The Voice,” Worthington released two songs that climbed the Billboard Heatseekers charts, according to

“His cover of Richard Marx’s ‘Right Here Waiting’ hit No. 14 and his remake of Keith Whitley’s ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ went to No. 17.

But perhaps the most impressive of the feats was when Jake’s rendition of the Bryan Adam’s hit song ‘Heaven’ reached No. 3 on Billboard Country Top Digital Songs,” the websites said.

Worthington released a debut EP of original songs in October.

Tickets to the Central Station show cost $8 in advance and $12 at the door. Call 628-4530 for information.
