Seven-time chart-topper and Big Loud Records star JAKE OWEN is feeling the love following the debut of his sixth studio album, GREETINGS FROM…JAKE.
Highlighting his signature blend of traditional twang and chill-country coastal flair, the album arrived inside the TOP 10 of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart fueled by the excitement of several high-profile media looks.
Selling more than 154,000 album equivalents of the release to date, GREETINGS FROM…JAKE finds the Florida native reconnecting with Joey Moi – the producer who helped Owen break out with career-defining singles like “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Alone With You” and “Beachin’.” The set features all-star collaborations with Kid Rock and YouTube sensation Lele Pons, as well as Owen's latest PLATINUM-selling #1 smash, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” and the Top 10 hit “Down To The Honkytonk.”
Following the album’s release, Owen delivered a cool and collected performance of that life-is-what-you-make-it anthem on NBC's TODAY, and has continued forward with a whirlwind media tour. He’s appeared on multiple podcasts from the popular Barstool Sports empire – including Fore PlayPodfathersKFC RadioThinker and Wine Walk – and also sat for a deep-diving interview with Build NYC’s Get Closer series.
Meanwhile, critical outlets are abuzz with praise:
