Owen Raises Money For St. Jude’s From His Kitchen

Jake Owen recently played his second StageIt show to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “The concerts are very spur of the moment,” he says. “There aren’t any mics or cords, just a few guitars and my MAC that has an eyesight camera on it. I Tweet about it ahead of time to let everyone know we’re doing it. The other night we raised 3K for St. Jude in just 35 minutes. I would have been playing music with my friends in my kitchen anyway, so it’s a pretty cool way to give back.”

Owen’s philanthropy continues on Dec. 10 at the Mardy’s Tennis & Jake’s Music Fest. Owen and his childhood friend and professional tennis player, Mardy Fish, are hosting the sixth annual event in their hometown of Vero Beach, FL. The concert will include performances by Eric Paslay, Chris Young and Owen. Owen’s portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude and The Mardy Fish Foundation, whose mission is to provide children access to after school exercise, nutritional and enrichment programs. Tickets can be purchased here.

In addition, AOL’s The Boot is hosting exclusive “Behind the Scenes” footage from Owen’s newest music video “Alone with You.” Click here to view. AOL is also featuring Owen in its “Sessions” series, which includes all genres of music. His four performances from Barefoot Blue Jean Night can be viewed here.
