Owen gets cuffed, married
Tuesday, May 8, 2012
– Jake Owen had a busy weekend. He was handcuffed at least for a little while for wearing a mask into a business in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla. on Saturday. A day later, he tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend.
Owen owned up to his bad behavior on Twitter. "I embarrassed myself and my family and most importantly the great people of my hometown," he tweeted.
"I want to publicly apologize again for bringing to light a situation that I overreacted to," he wrote.
Owen apparently was joking around with family and friends through a restaurant window while wearing a mask. A deputy told him not to enter, but he did anyway and was handcuffed. He was soon released with no actual arrest being made.
At sunrise on Monday, he married Lacey Buchanan. "A best friend for life. I now have a wifey :)" he tweeted after the beachside ceremony. "My face hurts from smiling. What a wonderful way to start the rest of my life."
Owen proposed during a benefit concert in April.

Most everyone has made up their mind on bro-country music. Maybe you love the breezy images of the beach dippin' and sippin' lifestyle, or you write it off as empty headed and repetitive. Either way, Florida native Jake Owen was a torchbearer for the genre, and it's rewarded him well - four albums and five Number One singles (remember "Beachin"?). His career has been on a more-or-less upward arc, with higher-profile tours and bigger hits each time out. ...
Jake Owen aims to satisfy all comers (that is, if the current country is your thing), but the individual pieces don't quite add up. The songs may stand up on their own well enough, but when all is said and done, Owen remains an artist without much of an identity or sound. Take, for example, Beachin', one of countless country songs about the good life. Like many of his counterparts these days, there's a spoken, neo hip hop rap part to it. The song is breezy, on the catchy side, but ...
