Jake Owen is busy this spring and summer opening for artists such as Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and Sugarland while also doing some solo stops along the way. But… Jake eventually wants to headline his own tour.
“A lot of those people who have me open for them did the same thing,” he tells the Arizona Daily Star earlier this month “Jason Aldean two years ago was just another guy like myself, but he had a couple of big hits in a row, and now he’s headlining arenas. You know it could happen … and that’s what I have to do. Everybody’s got their times, and I’m working on mine. I want my name on the ticket. I don’t want to be an opening act for the rest of my life.”
That being said, Jake appreciates that lasting careers take time to nuture. “It’s just a growing process. Nothing happens overnight. I’m excited for another year of being able to go out there and work at it again. It’s a nice job to have.”
Jake’s newest single ‘Tell Me’ has been released to the radio waves and is following up his previous hit ‘Eight Second Ride’.
