Fans’ most anticipated moment was seeing Jack Blocker make it to the Top 3 on American Idol. In the audition round, he was rejected by Katy Perry and Lionel Richie before Richie changed his mind.

Jack Blocker had a tough start to his career. He is a self-taught folk singer who found his passion for music at the age of 17.

He established his band, RIGHTFIELD, with his friend Reed Hoelscher in 2018. The band has released songs like Love Song, Big Tex, Gone, Puppeteer, and Himalayas.

It was not until October 13, 2023, that Jack released his first original song, I Was Wrong & Smithsonian Mt., and established himself as a folk singer.

The song I Was Wrong now receives 277,971 monthly listeners, the highest number among his all-released singles and EPs on Spotify.

Today, Jack Blocker has become a fan-favorite following his authentic performance in American Idol season 22.

Jack Blocker’s total earnings from his band RIGHTFIELD to releasing his own singles

Jack Blocker, the speculated winner of American Idol season 22, had initially earned royalties from his band.

The band started doing tours on November 14, 2019, with the first show in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Later, over 30 live tours in places like New York, Boston, Austin, and Dallas followed the show.

This alone accumulated the band around $100k per year with an estimated ticket price of $50 to a maximum of $200.

The band’s last show was on December 22, 2023, in Dallas, Texas. At the time, Jack Blocker had his wife, Georgia, to support him.

Meanwhile, the band’s latest released album was 23 to Forever on February 16, 2024, and it has a monthly listener of around 23K overall on the album’s song.

Sadly, it was the band’s last album, as Reed announced their disbandment on February 24, 2024, through the band’s Instagram handle.

He says it is to support his mate Jack Blocker in his new endeavor, as Jack was into releasing singles and EPs while being part of RIGHTFIELD.

Jack is under Elbow Grease Records, and all his earnings are split 50-50 with the label. His songs are also available on streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.

For every listener on Spotify, Jack Blocker receives around $0.00318, and around $0.008 in Apple Music. The record label, too, pays its artist.

Meanwhile, Jack Blocker’s win probability in American Idol is around 40%, with strong contenders like Abi Carter and Will Moseley.

If Jack Blocker wins, he will take $250K with him, adding to his current net worth, which is estimated to be around $130K to $150K. However, official sources have yet to reveal the exact numbers.
