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 nearly DOUBLE PLATINUM-selling title track, nearly PLATINUM “Alone with You” and GOLD-CERTIFIED “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. Jake will join Jason Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN TOUR, which kicks off on January 21. 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 was featured in Entertainment Weekly’s music issue, where EW ranked him among “The 30 Greatest Artists Right Now.” Jake 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.
