Country singer Jake Owen hadn’t planned on taking up a career in music. Born in 1981 in Vero Beach, Florida as Joshua Owens, professional golf was in Owen’s future, until a wakeboarding accident closed the door on those plans. While recovering, he took up his neighbor’s guitar and taught himself how to play. From there, he realized what his dreams really were. He moved to Nashville, where, in 2005, he signed with RCA Records. There, he changed his first name from Josh to Jake to avoid confusion with artists Josh Turner and Josh Gracin.
In early 2006, Owen’s first single, “Yee Haw,” was released. The song peaked at Number Sixteen. The album’s title track, “Startin’ with Me,” was his first Top 10 hit, peaking at Number Six. Since then, he has reached the Top 10 four more times, with “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You,” “The One That Got Away” and Number One hits “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Alone with You.” He narrowly missed the Top 10 with his Number Eleven 2009 hit “Eight Second Ride.”
Owen has won two awards in his career, Top New Male Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music in 2009 and Breakthrough Artist of the Year from the American Country Awards in 2012.
Owen has toured with artists like Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, Little Big Town, Sugarland and Keith Urban.
