This Florida-born, RCA Nashville signed singer offers much more than a Barefoot Blue Jean Night. His talent, alarmingly good looks, and constant output of hits makes this 10-year country music veteran a mainstay in the mainstream movement of 21st Century Country.
Part pop, part country, and all Southern charm, Jake Owen actually picked up guitar by accident while recovering from reconstructive surgery after a wakeboarding accident. From there, the rest was basically history (and, let’s get real, a ton of hard work). The 34-year-old often writes songs for blasting and having a good time to, and for that we thank him, along with several successful ballads giving every flannel-wearing fan all the feels.
Two-thousand and fifteen brought the release of his fifth studio album, but 2016 is looking to be a larger than life year. Next month, he drops the second single off that album- “Real Life”- in addition to playing at Country Night Lights in September amongst another huge headliner, Brett Eldredge, and others soon to be announced.
