Owen announces marriage split

Friday, August 7, 2015 – Jake Owen announced today via Twitter that he and his wife of three years are getting divorced.

Owen wrote on Twitter, ""This is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. We appreciate your support and privacy in this matter." He then posted a statement about the split with his wife, Lacey Buchanan.

"I wanted to let my fans know how much I've appreciated their support of not only my career, but my family as a whole. Sadly, Lacey and I have decided to end our marriage. We want to focus on our daughter Pearl and make sure that she has a beautiful life with loving parents. We appreciate you respecting our privacy during this time."

Owen proposed during a charity concert to Buchanan, a model, on May 7, 2012, in Vero Beach, Fla., where he grew up.

Owen talked about his marital problems in an interview posted July 1 on America's Morning Show. "Right now - and I haven't said this a lot lately because I didn't think this was anyone's business other than mine and my wife's - but my wife and I, for the last few months, have really been having a hard time and struggling with communication and literally talking about divorce and all kinds of stuff," he said. "And I don't want to talk about that, but after long conversations for days and weeks, part of us talking about it and getting it out there and letting people know that we're the same as they are, we have problems, too, it made us feel better talking about the things we've kept from each other."

Owen's announcement follows a spate of marital splits in Nashville, including Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

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 ...
