Jake Owen’s first headlining outing is a big success. CMT On Tour: Jake Owen: The Summer Never Ends 2012 is in the midst of the most consecutive sold-out shows since the CMT Tour’s inception eleven years ago. Featuring special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line, the outing kicked off with sold-out shows in New York, NY and Detroit, MI, and is on deck for advance sell-outs in at least six more markets.

Owen’s single “The One That Got Away,” is No. 1 on the MusicRow chart and follows a string of charttoppers including “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Alone with You.”

His new Endless Summer EP was produced by Joey Moi and released following Owen’s run on the Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw blockbuster Brothers of the Sun Tour.

Luke Bryan's Farm Tour

Luke Bryan wrapped his fourth annual Farm Tour 2012 earlier this month, performing for 100,000 fans during the eight-city run. That is more than double the attendance of last year’s Farm Tour. The outing visited Georgia Southern University, Clemson University, Auburn University, Valdosta State University, University of West Georgia, University of Georgia, Florida State University and Mercer University. Joining him were Peach Pickers Dallas Davidson and Rhett Akins, as well as singer/songwriters Chancie Neal and Cole Swindell.

The tour of outdoor shows celebrates American farmers and proceeds go to scholarships for students from farming families at each college.
