#CNL2016: Get To Know Jake Owen


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.

#CNL2016: Get To Know Brett Eldredge


When I’m not drooling over DJ’s, my guilty pleasure of soulful and sexy country musicians comes out from the closet (along with a pair of denim cut-offs and my hometown southern drawl). Picture an atmosphere as energetic and free-wheeling as #FEST but add a little twang and you’ve got Country Night Lights. If I only learned one thing in my formative years living in a small West Virginia town, it’s country kids know how to have a damn good time.

With instant attention from Rolling Stone and Billboard online, #CNL2016 looks like it will send a shiver down your saddle and a shot of moonshine straight into your bloodstream (I highly recommend George Washington’s original recipe, only for sipping). Let’s keep it Country 101 with an introduction to headliner Brett Eldredge, a three-time chart topper who is more mainstream pop than Merle Haggard.

The 29-year-old Illinois born artist was recently nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music while also revealing a new unnamed single that will be out early next month. With so-catchy-it-kills melodies and chart topping tracks like “Lose My Mind” and “Mean To Me”, the Country Night Lights headliner and Atlantic Records artist seems to be having his best year ever. His brand is a blend of soulful sound with lyrics laced of a classic country POV and an Abercrombie & Fitch model appeal…like a polished Marlboro man. This is 21st-Century Country, and it’s highly contagious.

Preview what you’ll see in September with some of Brett’s bests below, then head over to for an array of ticket options (GA, VIP, camping, and RV passes).
