McVey has become one of the most in demand young acts in country music. Performing 300 shows last year, he was named one of the Top Ten touring acts by Billboard magazine. His experience encompasses a variety of venues from sold out clubs to opening for Martina McBride in front of a crowd of 22,000. His high-energy stage show has earned the respect of fellow performers as he’s paid his dues opening for Dierks Bentley, Sugarland, Keith Anderson, Jason Aldean and Little Big Town, among others. This year he was booked for 10 consecutive nights at the Iowa State Fair.
The title track, "Anything Is Possible," encouraged Jake to give back. "When we go on tour, we'll visit
nursing homes or children's hospitals before our show in that town and do a 45-minute acousitc show. It's
great," says McVey. He calls the shows his Pay It Forward Tour and like the movie 'Pay it Forward' little
acts of kindness culminate into something bigger.
McVey’s music has a sense of purpose and an ever-present element of fun. When he first embarked on
this journey, he told his dad “failure is not an option.” He bought a bus, hit the road and has never looked
back. McVey embodies the title track to his new record and proved that with hard work and creative
passion, anything IS possible. “It’s a lot of work,” he says, “but it always does pay off as long as you have
heart behind the wheel.”
