Cool Peep: Rising Country Artist Drew Jacobs
Rapidly rising Country artist Drew Jacobs has known from the beginning that music is his absolute passion. Not only inspired by Country music, but Pop, Rock and Hip-Hop as well, Jacobs has successfully found a way to incorporate all of these elements into his ever-growing catalog. His debut album Got Me Like Whoa debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Chart with multiple music videos racking up a whopping 90 million views between YouTube and Facebook. Headlining the McMorran Place Theater in Port Huron, MI to a room packed wall-to-wall, Jacobs’ very first show sold out to over 1,100 people (TicketMaster verified), turning fans away at the door. With a current focus on new music, new music videos and a growing social media presence, Jacobs has amassed 500,000 Followers on Facebook alone. Jacobs stated, “The fans are what make this whole thing work. Without the fans, my team and I wouldn’t be here today. I love the people that support my music and I am forever grateful for each and every one of them.
Whats your sign?
Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?
I was born and raised in Port Huron, MI..I actually still live in Port Huron! I travel a lot but I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s no place like home.
What are a few of your favorite things?
I LOVE listening to Podcasts online and watching videos to expand my overall knowledge but outside of that I love dorky things like Star Wars, anything superheroes and AMC’s The Walking Dead! I’m a total geek and proud of it haha
When you are alone and you think no one is watching you. What quirky things are you doing?
I’m probably kicking back with my feet up watching The Office and saying EVERY single punch line before it’s said. It’s my guilty pleasure.
What is your favorite haunt?
I love spending time with friends downtown. My hometown is so beautiful and it’s amazing just to watch the freighters go down the river. If any of you ever find your way to Port Huron, MI hit me up and I’ll show you what I mean! Haha
Empty your pockets RIGHT NOW – what did you find? Be honest!
Wallet, 3 guitar pics and oddly enough… a granola bar I forgot I grabbed this morning… I’m going to eat that now haha
What is one thing that no one would ever guess about you? (at least by looking at you)
I used to be a Worship Leader at a church! I don’t talk about it too often but I believe it was the job that really helped shape me and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to do it!
What music is playing right now?
I’m actually listening to an acoustic playlist on Spotify! I like to have it run while I’m working.
What APP would you DIE without?
Facebook!! Without a doubt!
Someone offered you wise words once…what Yoda moment is stuck to your soul? What was said that you never forgot and who said it?
“A smart man learns from his own mistakes. A wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”
Not sure who said it but it has always stuck with me.
