Jake Own is a modern torchbearer of new country rock, and his four albums of pure country are well represented in his recent setlists. Owen dips into the entirety of his catalog across a rather confined 90 minute set.
First up is 2006’s RCA released Startin With Me. It has a rather standard country/pop flair, but features Owen’s breakthrough single, “Eight Second Rule,” and Owen closes the majority of his shows with a performance of this crowd pleaser.
Owen moves along in his set to 2009’s Easy Does It. The record is a dissection of country clichés, and it stands as Owen’s breakthrough album. The re-release of “Eight Second Ride” from his debut is only a testament to that single’s popularity and the subsequent importance of this album in the country music canon. Big single “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” pops up on the set towards the end. Owen also makes room for second single, “Tell Me” on some of the setlists.
Barefoot Blue Jean Night from 2011 cemented Owen’s status as a major player, and it featured the highest quantity of chart topping singles. Owen does something rather odd with his set. He opens with at least two big songs, most often the two that came from this record. This is “Anywhere With You” and “The One That Got Away” which both dominated country charts in 2011. He also plays the famous title track right in the middle of the set and preceding a rather goofy rendition of the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song.
2013’s Days of Gold is not as well known among fans, but Owen represents it with about three songs. The title track opens up the encore, and “1972” is a setlist standard.

How long is a Jake Owen concert?
Jake Owen is not a prolific headlining artist, for he has been the opening act for a number of major country stars in the last half a decade. With that said, he may be used to the 30 minute setlist time allotted as an opening act. His headlining stint is rarely above 90 minutes; a short and punchy collection of material that gets the crowd home before curfew.
Who is opening the show?
Jake Owen is brining along two notable acts for the largest headlining tour of his career. First up is the Eli Young Band. The foursome just released 10,000 Towns in March 2014, and it has gathered critical acclaim.
The Cadillac Three is acting as direct support. The group is a trio from the country capital of Nashville. Their close association has tied them to a quick signing with Big Machine and the release of their debut self titled studio album in 2013.

Who is Jake Owen’s publicist and press contact?
Jake Owens is under the largely RCA Sony Music roster, so he gets top priority in the country industry. His publicist is Jennifer Vessio. She works with a number of artists, including Bush Hawg, Sara Evans, and Love and Theft.
“Owen stayed true to his word. He jumped offstage to greet fans for the first time during current single “Beachin.’” He launched back onto the dirt floor during “1972,” handing out high-fives and hugs, autographing a homemade poster asking him to prom and even taking a swig of someone’s beer. (“I can still taste the line on my lips.”) He snapped several selfies with giddy female fans.” – Joey Guerra of the Houston Chronicle
“Both Jake Owen and Jason Aldean were highly entertaining. Big lights, loud guitars, flashy video packages, pretty much anything you can imagine being a staple of an arena concert were present. They engaged the crowd. From what I could tell, they played all of their hits. They really put on a heck of a show. If you leave a concert with your ears ringing and wake up the next day with them still ringing and you’re singing the songs you didn’t know before the concert, then the performers have done their job. And that’s what happened to me.” – The Wise Guise
“The show started off with a bang, as Owen’s first two songs were his current radio hits “Anywhere With You” and “The One That Got Away.” He immediately showed his fun side during the latter song by breaking into a bit of Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl” while discussing how there have been songs written about that girl that got away.” – Phoenix New Times
