RCA recording artist Jake Owen performed in front of a sold-out crowd his first weekend back out on the road after undergoing surgery on January 17 to repair his broken collarbone, due to a snowboarding accident.
“I’m thrilled to be back out on the road,” says Jake. “And to have a sold-out show our first weekend back is such an awesome feeling.” He performed Friday night (February 3) for a near sell-out crowd at Cowboy’s in Dallas, TX and Saturday night (February 4) for a sold-out crowd at Riverwind Casino in Norman, OK.
“I’m not very good at sitting around the house taking it easy,” Jake continues. “I had eight screws and a metal plate put in to repair my collarbone, so I’ve had to spend a lot of time at doctor’s appointments and physical therapy sessions over the past few weeks. Getting back out on stage was the best therapy I’ve had.”
On March 1, Jake will be a guest on Chelsea Lately, hosted by Chelsea Handler, which airs at 11 p.m. ET on E! “I can’t wait to meet Chelsea,” says Jake. “She’s fearless.”
Jake’s current single, “Alone with You,” entered the Top 10 this week on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart. In addition, “Alone with You” is No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Digital Songs chart and the music video for the song has over 1.4 million views at VEVO. “Alone with You” is the second single from Jake’s album Barefoot Blue Jean Night, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Albums chart.
Jake will be in attendance tomorrow night at the Act of Valor exclusive movie premiere in Nashville. Jake co-wrote and recorded a song on the soundtrack for the upcoming feature film. Act of Valor is a motion picture starring active duty Navy Seals, in theatres February 24.
