Lagoon fans, you’re in for a special treat this week! Third round finalist on The Voice Jake Gill is making a stop in Fort Collins this year during his 2018 tour. He’s currently working on his fourth album, where he plays a part in writing or co-writing every song. He loves to write from experience and tell a story about something that he has lived through himself.
Originally from Kansas, Gill remembers spending time with his grandfather working out on the family farm and listening to country music together. Although he always had a passion for music, he went to school to become a chiropractor and even opened his own office in Hitchinson, Kan. He performed inconsistently around the area at many local churches before deciding to jump head first into a musical career.
After starring on The Voice and winning a songwriting contest, Gill had the opportunity to play on the main stage at Country Stampede and open for Jason Aldean in front of more than 50,000 people. He has also performed alongside some of the biggest names in country music, including Jake Owen, Easton Corbin and Chris Cagle.
Providing the good eats this week is The Rollin’ Stone Wood Fired Pizzeria, Wing Shack, The Goodness Truck, The Human Bean and A-Maize’n Kettle Corn.
You won’t want to miss this celebrated country artist! So brush up on those swing-dancing skills and we’ll see you Wednesday night, kicking up dust in your cowboy boots.
