Over 20,000 Fans Gathered To Join Jake In Celebrating The #1 Gold-Certified Smash “Anywhere With You” In Nashville
Nashville, TN (August 20, 2013) – Last night (8/19), Jake Owen threw an epic Summer Block Party to celebrate his fourth consecutive #1 “Anywhere With You” in Nashville, TN. Inviting fans to the free show via Twitter and Facebook, a massive crowd of 20,000 plus gathered to see the chart-topping vocalist perform and attend the largest #1 party ever held at BMI. Reaching maximum capacity, fans lined the streets of Music Row and tailgated in nearby parking lots throughout the evening.
The festivities kicked off with new trio The Cadillac Three warming up the crowd followed by an onstage #1 celebration for Jake’s “Anywhere With You,” co-written by Ben Hayslip, Jimmy Yeary and David Lee Murphy. Playing for over two hours, Jake delivered an electrifying performance and quickly became a trending topic on Twitter. As revealed earlier in the day, special guests Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Thomas Rhett, and Dee Jay Silver joined Jake onstage to show their support for him. Nashville’s hip food trucks lined up for the event and the beer was flowing.
Since releasing his chart-topping album, BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT, Jake has emerged as one of country music’s leading vocalists. The RCA Nashville project delivered four consecutive #1 hit singles, including the multi-week chart-toppers; the Double Platinum title track and Platinum “Alone with You,” and Gold-certified hits “The One That Got Away” and “Anywhere with You.” Poised to follow the success, Jake’s brand new single “Days of Gold” is now at Country radio nationwide and will be featured on his album of the same title to be released on 12/3.
His energetic live show and captivating songs have landed him coveted opening slots with Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and his first headlining tour, “CMT On Tour Jake Owen: The Summer Never Ends 2012”, which made CMT history for the most sold-out shows in a row for the annual nationwide tour. The American Country Awards Breakthrough Artist of the Year is currently touring with Jason Aldean's “Night Train” Tour.
The Vero Beach, FL, native first captured the national spotlight with his hits “Startin’ with Me,” “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” and “Eight Second Ride.” The 2009 ACM Top New Male Vocalist’s revival of “Life in a Northern Town” with Sugarland and Little Big Town in 2008 earned him Grammy and CMA Award nominations.
