Owen headlines CMT tour

Tuesday, August 21, 2012 – Jake Owen will headline the 11th annual CMT ON TOUR with special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line.

CMT ON TOUR JAKE OWEN: THE SUMMER NEVER ENDS 2012 kicks off Oct. 10 in New York City, with tickets going on sale Friday, Aug. 24.

The tour comes on the heels of a big year for Owen, which includes two back-to-back, multi-week n umber one singles with Barefoot Blue Jean Night and Alone With You. He is currently on the Brothers of the Sun tour this summer with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw. Owen first appeared on the CMT ON TOUR bill in 2007 as special guest for Sugarland.

"Being the headliner of a tour is something I've been dreaming about since I was in college, performing songs every Sunday afternoon on a bar stool and playing for tips," says Owen. "Headlining the CMT Tour is really cool for me because I was the opening, opening act in 2007, when Sugarland was the headliner and Little Big Town had the middle slot. So now, to be headlining the 11th Annual CMT Tour, with my buddies Love and Theft and Florida Georgia line, it feels very surreal. I'm honored and I can't wait to hit the road in October and keep that feeling of summer going on THE SUMMER NEVER ENDS tour."

The CMT tour launched in 2002 and has featured Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland and Keith Urban.

CD review - Greetings from...Jake Owen Jake Owen contributes to the writing of his album "Greetings From...Jake" on just one song called "Damn." Therefore, the success this project rises or falls with his vocals and song choices. Fortunately, Own has chosen some memorable songs to sing, and his singing voice has never sounded better. He's never better than on the single and album opener, "Down to the Honkytonk." It's a 'friends in low places' drinking song, where Owen's voice gets ...
CD review - American Love 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. ...
CD review - Days of Gold 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 ...
