Hailing from Sevierville near Knoxville in Tennessee, Jacob Whitesides, soon 19, first became interested in music while attending a bluegrass festival in 2008. In 2012, at 14 he gained national attention after making the first cut of The X Factor. After "Lovesick" (here) and "Focus" (there) earlier this year, the teenager is back with "Open book", the third single taken from his début album entitled "Why?" due out September 9. The accompanying promo video was director by Chris Crutch.
