Known for his laid-back beach vibe and infectious summertime anthems, country star Jake Owen will be taking to the lake this Labor Day weekend on his new, shiny purple boat with family and friends.

Getting in gear, the “Beachin’” singer recently took a test drive at Center Hill Lake in Nashville, TN, and showed off his polished wakeboard skills with a smoothly nailed 360°. Watch the video below!

Growing up on the water in Vero Beach, FL, it’s no surprise that when Jake is not out on the road or in the studio, he is on the water.

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

Touring in support of his latest album DAYS OF GOLD, featuring the PLATINUM-certified, #1 smash “Beachin’” and emotional new single “What We Ain’t Got,” the RCA Nashville project is the follow up to the GOLD-certified BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT album, which has sold wellover 5 million tracks to date.

Previously taking home ACA and ACM Awards, Jake has ascended to one of Country music’s leading male vocalists with five #1 smashes – GOLD-certified hits “The One That Got Away,” “Anywhere with You,” PLATINUM-certified “Alone with You,” “Beachin’” and 2X PLATINUM “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.”

Jake’s DAYS OF GOLD is available now HERE.

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!

Make sure to check out The Band Perry on Larry King today at 2PM PST/5PM EST!

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.
