RCA recording artist Jake Owen was thrilled to perform on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Valentine’s Day. In fact, before boarding the plane to NYC, Jake was telling everyone Happy “Fallontine’s” Day.

“Meeting Jimmy Fallon yesterday and performing on his show was such an awesome experience,” says Jake. “He is a true musician and music lover. Our dressing room had a piano and several instruments that we were all passing around before the show. It was really cool, and having the opportunity to spend Valentine’s Day in New York City was amazing.”

Jake is also selling out shows in record time around the country. He has sold-out ten shows to date in 2012. His show at Joe’s Bar in Chicago sold-out in 10 minutes so a second show was added. The second show sold-out the first day it was on sale. Yesterday, his show in Ohio on March 17 sold-out in 18 minutes.

2012 started out a little rough for Jake. He had to reschedule a few shows in January after breaking his collarbone while he was snowboarding during the BMI Songwriters Festival in Crested Butte, CO, but it seems as though things are looking up.

Jake’s current single, “Alone With You,” is Top-10 this week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Country Aircheck.

On March 1, Jake will be a guest on Chelsea Lately, hosted by Chelsea Handler, which airs at 11 p.m. ET on E!

“Alone With You” is the second hit single from his 3rd studio album Barefoot Blue Jean Night available in stores as well as on iTunes by clicking HERE.
