Big Loud Records is proud to announce the signing of Country star Jake Owen, who comes on board the innovative label today (11/6). With this move, Owen is reunited with one of the founders of the Big Loud organization Joey Moi, who produced Owen’s breakthrough album, Barefoot Bluejean Night, which garnered four consecutive #1 hits.
“I couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter in my career with Big Loud,” Owen says. “The passion for success that everyone has in the building is contagious. Combining what I already do with Big Loud’s expertise is exciting, and I am eager to get to work with Joey Moi again. We had great success in the past and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for all of us.”
In becoming the newest member of the Big Loud family, Owen will have the full support of a forward-thinking staff hungry to continue shaking up Country’s conventional wisdom.
“This is an unbelievable moment for all of us as true fans of Jake Owen,” label President Clay Hunnicutt says. “When we created Big Loud over two years ago, this is exactly the type of ‘home’ we wanted to create for someone like Jake, who is a unique and unparalleled entertainer and person, and who has a clear vision of who he is as an artist.”
As a platinum-selling hitmaker, Owen is a welcomed addition to the Big Loud Records roster whose team has already launched the careers of newcomers Chris Lane, Morgan Wallen, and Jillian Jacqueline.
Owen, a native Floridian, recently joined Florida Governor Rick Scott to help in relief efforts for Hurricane Irma victims in his home state with a campaign he launched called “Bring Back the Sunshine.” Also, he will unite with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith to perform at a Hurricane Benefit Concert, taking place on November 19, at Donald L. Tucker Civic Center on the campus of Owen’s alma mater, Florida State University, in Tallahassee, FL. Proceeds will help communities in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the islands affected by hurricanes in 2017.
