Former Bachelorette Contestant To Perform At THON

Former Bachelorette contestant and country singer James McCoy Taylor will perform at THON on Sunday, February 18. Taylor, who competed on JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, announced via Twitter that he’ll be in University Park after two performances in Texas and Chicago.

Taylor made it to the final six in Fletcher’s season before he was eliminated. Taylor released his first album, “Can’t Stop,”  soon after he left the show. His newest single, titled “The Opposite,” dropped last August.

In an interview with IndyStar.com, Taylor revealed that he decided to pursue a career in music after the producers of The Bachelorette branded him as the “romantic musician.” After JoJo sent him home, Taylor quit his job as an account manager at an Atlanta pest control company and became just that.

(Shade alert: It’s worth noting that James Taylor told ABC his dream occupation was to become a starting NFL quarterback — the same occupation former quarterback Bachelorette season 12 winner Jordan Rodgers, brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, was never able to reach. We see what you did there.)
