RCA Nashville’s Jake Owen launched his first headlining tour CMT On Tour: Jake Owen – The Summer Never Ends 2012 with a sold-out show Wednesday night (10/10) at New York City’s Best Buy Theatre. After performing his smash hits “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Alone With You,” and “The One That Got Away,” Owen was joined onstage by his tourmates Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line for a rendition of Van Halen’s “Jump.”

At the New York City show, all three artists were honored for recent achievements. Owen was saluted for selling out the opening show of his first-ever headlining tour. Love and Theft was bestowed with a plaque commemorating the duo’s CMT No. 1 video for “Angel Eyes.” Florida Georgia Line was surprised with a plaque recognizing the Gold certification of the duo’s single “Cruise.” Both artists are nominated for honors at the forthcoming American Country Awards.

The Summer Never Ends 2012 tour already has sold-out dates in Detroit (10/18), Chicago (11/29-30), and St. Louis (12/8). More concert dates here.
