Larry Fleet will serve as direct tour support for the “Down To The Tiki Tonk Tour,” and tickets go on sale Dec. 13 and are available with additional purchasing information at jakeowen.net.
“Sitting on a barstool, just playing a guitar and singing songs is how I first started making music and is what first led me to fall in love with performing,” recalls Owen. “Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have the venues get bigger, and to play for larger crowds on major headlining tours, but when I sat down to think about what was important to me this upcoming year, I really wanted the opportunity to go back to the beginning of it all. For me, it was that intimate connection with fans and the ability to really engage on a more personal level… it just takes me back to the real roots of where and why you started doing this in the first place. The strength of the songwriting and the magic of how that translates into a room with just a guitar and a song. I really can’t wait to play these rooms.”
Entertainment Tonight recently premiered the long-form extended video for Owen’s latest single “Homemade,” which is currently racing up the country charts. The video for the song features Owen’s grandparents’ real-life love story, and he shared an in-depth interview with his grandparents on a recent episode of his podcast “Good Company with Jake.”
