Jake Owen Gets Emotional in ‘What We Ain’t Got’ Music Video

Jake Owen

Jake Owen debuted the brand new music video for his emotionally charged single “What We Ain’t Got” this week.

Known for his laid-back vibe and beach party anthems, Owen showcases a much different side with his latest offering penned by Travis Jerome Goff and recovering addict Travis Meadows. “I was immediately taken by this song and Travis’ [Meadows] raw honesty,” shares Owen. “This is an anthem for people living real life which is what country music is – telling stories about real life. There’s a line that goes ‘I wanted the world ’till my whole world stopped’ and I really feel what Travis meant by that. Everything halted when my dad went through cancer last year. It was difficult to see the man that I looked up to the most and was the pillar of strength in our family going through this. As difficult a time as it was, he is now cancer free and I’m so thankful.”

Filmed in Nashville, TN, the video for “What We Ain’t Got” features simple snapshots of real people who have struggled, experienced loss and provide inspiration to others, including songwriter Travis Meadows. Director Mason Dixon reinforces the visceral scenes with flashes of Owen performing the powerful song solo.

Country music, a genre long known for its do-gooding & family-like bond, gathered together to help one of its own, Robin Majors, at Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville, TN. Majors, a beloved behind-the-scenes guy with 37+ years in the touring industry, was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and miraculously given a new liver in January of this year. The event last night was organized to raise money to help offset the astronomical and ongoing medical bills.

Hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, the show featured Kacey Musgraves, Jake Owen, Troy Gentry, Wade Hayes, Darryl Worley, David Adam Byrnes, Jim Quick, Ray Scott, Paulette Carlson, Brian Nutter, Mark Collie, Jon Berry, Henry Paul & others.

Majors, who is currently on the road with Kenny Chesney, is known for his wide smile and positive attitude on the road. He would like to thank MusicCares, The Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund and the Academy of Country Music for financial assistance through their respective programs and Vanderbilt University Medical Center for the excellent care he has received through this entire ordeal.

For those who unable to attend the benefit, there are two ways to make donations: Straight into the Robin Majors Gift of Life Fund, through Wells Fargo Private Bank, 3100 West End Ave, Ste 550, Nashville, TN, 37203. Attn: Danielle Bouharoun. Donations can also be made online here.

Cole Swindell, Chase Rice and Jake Owen to Join Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival

FotorCreated

Kenny Chesney has always brought acts he’s believed in out on the road. From Carrie Underwood to CMA Song of the Year winner Kacey Musgraves to jam-rocker Grace Potter, the 4-time Country Music Association and 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year believes in giving newly established artists the opportunity to get in front of his No Shoes Nation. For his 2015 The Big Revival Tour, Chesney put the focus on writer/artists, bringing breakout artist and award-winning songwriter Cole Swindell along with along with Platinum-selling country music maverick Chase Rice for what will be the summer’s best party.

“When I came to town, I was a writer, trying to get my songs cut – and playing on a stool down on Lower Broadway,” Chesney says. “I didn’t have nearly the success Cole and Chase are enjoying right now, but I know the difference getting your music in front of an audience makes. For both of these guys, who have a lot of energy and a real way of grabbing people, I think it’s the perfect way to get the audience fired up for the show.”

Joining Chesney will be label mate Jake Owen, who skyrocketed to stardom 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.” Known for his thrilling beachy performances and laid back style of country, Owen fits right in with the No Shoes Nation tour.

“It’s not just about the big names,” Chesney says of his tour chemistry. “It’s about fresh faces people need to know. If I can turn people on, or remind them of an artist like Jake, I know they’re gonna get a show that rocks them, but also opens up some new music. To me, that’s the secret of a great show: what you know and what you find out. In just a few days, I’ll have some more news to share, that is going to step up this tour to a whole other level…”
