MUST-SEE SHOW FEATURES CHART-TOPPING SONGWRITERS OF

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE CMA FOUNDATION
TICKETS ON SALE THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 25 AT 10AM CT
Jake Owen has invited some of his friends and fellow songwriters to join him on the Ryman Auditorium stage for the JAKE OWEN & FRIENDS: A CONCERT MADE FOR YOU event on Thursday, July 15. Proceeds from this special, one night only show will benefit the CMA Foundation and their efforts to improve and sustain high-quality music education programs across the US, as they work to ensure every child has the opportunity to participate in music. Guaranteed to be a night chock full of surprises, tickets go on sale for the must-see show this Friday, June 25 at 10am CT and can be purchased HERE.
“With CMA Fest postponed for a second year, the Foundation lost a majority of its funding," says Tiffany Kerns, CMA Foundation Executive Director. “Having artists like Jake show continued commitment and support to our mission is what sets Country Music apart. As beneficiaries, we are honored to be included in this event. It is sure to be an exciting night full of Country Music!”
Sharing the stage with Owen will be some of the songwriters behind his NINE career #1 hits, including the most recent multi-week #1 smash “Made For You” from his critically-acclaimed album GREETINGS FROM…JAKE (Big Loud Records). Penned by Benjy Davis, Joey Hyde and Neil Medley, “Made For You,” earned all three of these writers their first-ever #1 song. Quickly becoming an international sensation, the single charted in the United States, Canada and Australia — and marked the first time Big Loud Records ever had a multi-week, #1 single on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts.
“Being able to play the Ryman Auditorium is always going to be special, but to be able to share the stage with some of the people who helped shape my career with their songs is something that I will remember forever,” shares Owen. “This ‘Made For You’ concert is made for Country music fans, and it’s going to be a special way to be a part of the shows that are welcoming live music back to Nashville.”
During this charitable evening, Owen will perform fan favorites alongside singles from his growing catalog of top-charting songs, including “Homemade,” "I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” and “Down to the Honkytonk.”
