The Voice winner Jake Hoot is officially engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Brittney Nicole Hoyt. The singer shared the happy news on social media, which comes with a photo of Jake Hoot’s wife-to-be showing off her ring to Hoot’s daughter Macy.
“Here’s the big news!! I get to marry my best friend,” Jake Hoot wrote in the caption. “The lyrics God blessed the broken road has never been more true! I’m so glad the God kept bringing us back together time and time again!”
Here’s what you need to know about their engagement and the soon-to-be Mrs. Hoot.
1. Jake Hoot popped the question at Brittney Hoyt’s hometown.
Hoyt got the surprise of her life when Hoot got down on one knee and popped the question in front of her family during a trip to her native land of Phoenix, Arizona. “I knew how important being around family was to Britt, and with her birthday coming up, I knew it would be the perfect time to do it!” Hoot said at the time.
Though the proposal was intended to be a surprise, the bride-to-be quickly got the hint the moment she saw her family gathered around.
“She lost it! I had to keep her moving forward because she was crying and trying to fall down on me!” Hoot recalled. “Then after I popped the question, we were both so emotional that I almost had to wrestle her arm to put the ring on her hand!”
2. Brittney Hoyt is overjoyed with her engagement ring.
For her engagement ring, Jake Hoot has chosen a stunning oval diamond complemented with small fancy diamonds all over the band.
″It is my dream ring! It’s more than I could’ve ever dreamed of,” Hoyt said.
3. Their wedding will be this March 2021.
According to the couple’s wedding website, Hoot and Hoyt’s union will be on March 7, 2021, at Saddle Woods Farm, Nashville, Tennessee.
“Growing old with my best friend, sharing all the highs and lows, slow dancing every day, doing missions together, and expanding our family,” Hoot said. “I’m so excited to spend every day with my very best friend!”
4. Brittney Hoyt and Jake Hoot’s story began seven years ago.
The lovely couple first met seven years ago as wedding singers for their best friend’s wedding. The two sang the newlywed’s first dance song, titled “When God made You.” Unfortunately, the two went in separate directions after the wedding. Hoyt was living in Arizona at the time, while Hoot lives in Tennessee.
But one mission trip to Nicaragua reconnected them.
“I knew from [the time] we reconnected in Nicaragua!” Hoot said. “Her heart for others and love for God made me fall in love with her. I’m so glad God blessed the broken road that brought us back around to each other numerous times!”
5. Brittney Hoyt is the founder and president of the non-profit organization The Radiant Initiative Team.
Brittney Hoyt grew up in Casa Grande, Arizona. She attended Central Arizona College and then Grand Canyon University, where she earned her nursing science degree.
Soon after her first medical mission to Nicaragua, Hoyt came back with another mission. In 2019, Hoyt founded The Radiant Initiative – a non-profit organization “created to educate, equip and empower people all over the world with identity, vision, and purpose, so that we can each individually walk in the fullness of Jesus, therefore changing the world around us,” The Radiant Initiative wrote on their website.
The website also describes Hoyt “as a voice and influencer in her generation,” who “leads, inspires and equips people of all ages to walk fully in who they’ve been created to be and embrace their God-given identity.” Currently, Hoyt lives in Nashville, Tennessee, practicing Labor and Delivery Nurse.
