RCA recording artist Jake Owen’s current hit single, “Alone with You,” was certified GOLD today by the Recording Industry Association of America, based on sales in excess of 500,000 digital downloads to date. The song holds the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and No. 3 on Country Aircheck. The music video for the song has received nearly two million views on VEVO. “Alone with You” is the second single from Jake’s album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
“I’ve been out on the road touring non-stop for the past six years,” reflects Jake. “And my main goal has always been to try to connect with people. Now, it is just such a great feeling to know that ‘Alone with You’ and ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ are songs that people are connecting to. In this day and time, I never take anything for granted. To have a gold single AND a platinum single from my album means the world to me and I’m so grateful.”
“Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” the debut single and title track from the album, was touted as 2011’s summer anthem and is rapidly approaching 1.5 million digital downloads.
Jake has sold-out eleven shows so far in 2012, and he is thrilled to be part of the Brothers of the Sun Tour starring Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, featuring Grace Potter and The Nocturnals. The stadium tour kicks off on June 2 in Tampa, FL.
“I can’t wait to get out on the road with Kenny and Tim,” says Jake. “They are two of the coolest guys in this business. And, I think it’s so wild that the tour kicks off in my home-state of Florida. It is going to be an awesome summer!”
