Artist Snapshots (2/21/13)

While gearing up to join Jason Aldean’s 2013 Night Train tour, RCA Nashville artist Jake Owen celebrated a Gold certification in the U.S. for his single “The One That Got Away.” Label executives and management surprised Jake with a plaque to commemorate the occasion in the midst of his tour rehearsal on Feb. 19 at Nashville’s Soundcheck. 

 “If the excitement wasn’t already building just preparing to hit the road with friend (and headliner) Jason Aldean, it sure is now! I can’t thank Country radio and the fans enough for supporting my music. My band and I have been in rehearsals day in and day out getting our new show ready and I can’t wait to share it,” shares Jake.
