About Jake Owen
Since releasing his chart-topping album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night, RCA Nashville's Jake Owen has emerged as one of country music’s leading vocalists. The album has delivered three consecutive No. 1 hit singles, the first two of which held the top spot on the chart for multiple weeks - the PLATINUM-selling title track, GOLD-certified “Alone with You" and “The One That Got Away.” Jake’s high-energy live show and captivating songs have landed him sought-after opening slots nationwide with Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and his first headlining tour, CMT ON TOUR JAKE OWEN: THE SUMMER NEVER ENDS 2012. Jake made CMT history with the most consecutive sold-out shows for the annual nationwide tour since its inception eleven years ago. In 2013, Jake will join Jason Aldean's NIGHT TRAIN TOUR. The Florida native's ode to summer, his new Endless Summer EP, made an impressive debut at #2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Jake has appeared on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE and Chelsea Lately. He first captured the national spotlight with his hits “Startin’ with Me,” “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” and “Eight Second Ride.” His revival of “Life in a Northern Town” with Sugarland and Little Big Town in 2008 earned him Grammy and CMA Award nominations. Jake was recently named the American Country Awards' 2012 Breakthrough Artist of the Year adding to his nod as 2009’s Top New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music. Earlier this year, Entertainment Weekly’s music issue ranked him among “The 30 Greatest Artists Right Now.”
