FORT COLLINS, COLO. – July 12, 2018 – The Lagoon Summer Concert Series is excited to present country artist and third round finalist on NBC’s “The Voice,” Jake Gill, on Wednesday, July 18. The concert will take place on the west lawn of the Lory Student Center and run from 6-8:30 p.m.
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.
