Jake Owen has inked a worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music Nashville. Owen has earned seven No. 1 songs at country radio, including “Beachin’,” “American Country Love Song,” and most recently, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” off his latest album, Greetings From… Jake, which marked his first album for Big Loud.

The project followed Owen’s American Love album, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on Billboard’s 200 all-genre albums chart, while his 2011 album Barefoot Blue Jean Night produced four consecutive No. 1 songs including the 2x platinum title-track “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” and the platinum-certified hits “Beachin’,” “Anywhere With You,” “Alone With You,” and “The One That Got Away.”

Owen recently made his acting debut in the feature film The Friend, which was presented at the Toronto International Film Festival. Owen is repped by WME for booking and managed by Good Company Entertainment.
