Big Loud recording artist Jake Owen kicks off his headlining “Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour 2018” on Saturday, June 2nd in North Augusta, SC, at SRP Park. The tour features special guest Chris Janson and rising star Jordan Davis. The majority of shows will take place at baseball stadiums across the country. Tickets on sale NOW.
“I’m excited to do what I moved to town to do,” shares Jake. “Get on a stage and play songs that make people happy. Putting a tour together is a team effort and I’m fired up to share this summer with everyone who’s helped me put this thing together; my fans, my band and crew, Chris Janson, and Jordan Davis.”
In addition, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” the fastest rising single of Jake’s career, entered the Top 10 this week on the Mediabase chart. The song has been burning up the charts since its release back in March when over 130 monitored chart-reporting country radio stations added the song on or before official impact date, marking an unprecedented start to a new single in Jake’s career to date.
Last week, Jake had the honor of competing in The Web.comTour’s Nashville Golf Open, benefitting the Snedeker Foundation. Check out his comments after his first round HERE, final round thoughts HERE, plus, video footage of the players singing a few lines of “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” HERE.
During his opening round of play, a Twitter exchange occurred about Jake’s score, which produced numerous donation pledges, one being a pledge of $5K from Brandt Snedeker, and another pledge of $5K from country music star Chris Young for each birdie Owen scored. While Owen didn’t score any birdies, the NGO has announced that it will make a $10,000 donation to the Jake Owen Foundation for bringing tremendous awareness to the tournament.
After Owen’s final round on Saturday morning, he said, “I’m so thankful to even have the opportunity to be out here playing with these guys. At the end of the day, I tried as hard as I could to raise money for Brandt and his foundation. Even though I went “birdieless,” we did bring a lot of people out. They seemed to enjoy it, and I enjoyed it. I’ve been able to do some really cool things in my life and this is definitely on the list of one of the greatest events I’ve been a part of. As a competitor, it’s a bummer, but for me, the score doesn’t matter right now. I’m so thankful to every player out here and every person with the PGA, web.com tour and NGO for giving me a spot.”
