Ride, the family rodeo drama that premiered Sunday, March 26 on Hallmark Channel, introduced viewers to the McMurrays, a tight knit group who’ve supported each other through more than one tragic loss. Among them is Tuff, who’s played by Jake Foy.

The character was a bull fighter before his brother’s death after a bull ride gone wrong. Feeling guilty for not noticing Austin was distracted, Tuff dropped that aspect of his life until he chose to pick it back up when his other brother, Cash, decided he’s going to ride. Tuff, however, isn’t just a bull fighter. He’s the foreman on his family’s ranch and he’s the lead singer in his band.

We got to see Tuff perform in the season opener, “Legend of the Fall,” where he played two songs–“Cornfields and Cadillacs” and “Just Wanted You to Know.” He has a full voice that speaks to the warmth of his character.

Of course, after seeing him entertain the crowd has left viewers wondering if the actor who portrays Tuff is singing or if that’s a dubbed over voice and it’s another’s talent on display. Here’s what we know!

Is that really Jake Foy singing on Ride?

Yes, that’s Jake Foy singing. The actor spoke a bit about the experience in an interview with Pop-Culturalist: “I come from a musical theater background, so Tuff’s country singing is an enormous opportunity for me.”

So, if you’re a fan of Ride, you should expect to hear more songs from Tuff with Foy lighting up the stage or perhaps even by a bonfire as he sings for a crowd, his family, or whoever he chooses to serenade.
