COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Former Tennessee Tech football player Jake Hoot won the season’s “The Voice” on Tuesday night.
Friends and fans attended a watch party at The Edge of Life Church on Washington Avenue to see if Hoot would win the music competition.
Fans had to wait a little longer as Hoot was named to the final two before the winner was announced just before 10 p.m. on the NBC show.

He has grown up singing and began playing gigs when he moved here.
