Of the first-of-its-kind acoustic tour for Owen, the singer/songwriter shared, “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. 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.”
Greetings From…Jake garnered Owen’s seventh #1 hit and debuted with more than 154,000 album equivalents to date. The singer/songwriter continues to earn acclaim with critics praising the album as one that unveils new levels of his artistry. People raves “….Owen has let his inner Merle come out to play,” The Tennessean called the album one that “…drips steel guitar and hit country songs…,” and Billboard lauded the blend of “…biting honkytonk electrics, ringing acoustics and Paul Franklin’s tangy steel…with the twang in his Florida-bred accent…”
