Jake Owen Reflects on His Career with Larry King

Jake Owen

Country music sensation Jake Owen recently sat down with Larry King at LA’s famed Greek Theater for an episode of the Emmy nominated web-series “Larry King Now”. The two chatted about Jake’s first big headlining tour “Days of Gold”, getting drunk on his first night opening for Kenny Chesney and how he’d love to be able to grant wishes for people.

Like all singers Jake Owen begun his career opening up for headliners like Kenny Chesney. He reflected back on that experience,

“As an opening act all you want to do is absolutely crush every other person that you’re playing with and you want to step on the headliner.”

In addition to Kenny Chesney, Owen also opened up for Brad Paisley, Little Big Town, Sugarland, Keith Urban and Jason Aldean.

Owen wasn’t always pursuing a career on stage. He attended Florida State and was on the golf team, a waterskiing accident forced him to undergo shoulder surgery that ended his career. He randomly decided to pick up a guitar and begun singing, something he enjoyed as a child.

“I promise this is the honest truth – I’ll never forget just kind of singing along to a song, and my brother and I were sitting in the backseat of the car one time and he was like, ‘Mom, you should like do something with Jake ‘cause I think he can sing Ok.’ I’ll never forget Jared said that.” Jake said he was about 10 years old then.

Owen also answered some social media questions from his biggest fans including whom he’d like to duet with, where he writes most of his music and what has been his favorite moment on tour. Check out the interview below!

Jake Owen threw Nashville’s largest beach party for fans Monday Night at BMI. Taking it up a notch from the wildly successful block party last year, the capacity crowd gathered for the talented singer’s free concert, where he performed a dynamic set, including his PLATINUM-certified, #1 summer anthem “Beachin’.” Music industry insiders were also on hand to present Jake with a plaque for his Beachin’ milestone pre-show.

Concert highlights included songwriter Travis Meadows joining Jake onstage for a memorable performance of his emotional new single “What We Ain’t Got” and special guest Mike Posner appearing for a crowd-jumping rendition of “Cooler Than Me.” Lee Brice, Sonia Leigh, Dan + Shay and Brothers Osborne also made surprise appearances throughout the night and openers Old Dominion and The Cadillac Three got the crowd revved up.

Jake is currently on his major nationwide headlining run – DAYS OF GOLD TOUR 2014 – which delivers the party atmosphere with a stage set designed to resemble his hometown Riverside Café, including tiki bars, nautical ropes and palm trees. Presented by Discover Boating, the sizzling tour covers 75-plus cities.

Jake Owen Announces New Single & Beach Party!

Jake Owen

Jake Owen released his emotional new single “What We Ain’t Got” to Country radio nationwide this week. Written by Travis Jerome Goff and Travis Meadows, the song is a wistful ballad about longing for something that is out of reach and showcases his remarkable voice.

When Jake made the leap to Nashville, he came to town to pursue songwriting. The first time he heard “What We Ain’t Got” it resonated with him on every level and he knew that he had to record it.

“For me, there is a lot in my life that I have, and more that I really want, and sometimes that’s good and sometimes that’s not so good. People relate to that on many levels, whether it’s in their marriage or in their business. This song can be a mirror to people’s lives,” shares Jake. “Seeing the fans overwhelming emotional reaction when we play it every night on the road, I knew this had to be my next song.”

Jake performed the song on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“What We Ain’t Got” is featured on his latest album DAYS OF GOLD, which also includes the lively fan-favorite “Days of Gold” and infectious summer anthem “Beachin’.” The RCA Nashville project is the follow up to the GOLD-certified BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT album, which has sold well over 5 million tracks.
