Country may be the only form of modern music left with a consistent sense of humor, and Jake Owen definitely taps into that. The Nashville-by-way-of-Florida singer-guitarist slips a twangy "yee haw" in when he can (see the song by the same name), but he also uses his accentuated southern voice to sing about heartbreak and distrust.
Made for the spotlight, Owen's perfect smile and chiseled jaw put him up there with the Kenny Chesneys and Brad Paisleys of the genre -- both of whom he's toured with. In the midst of recording his third record, Owen is in Denver tonight at the Grizzly Rose as part of a series of one-off shows before his big tour this summer with Keither Urban.This show is eighteen and up and tickets are $18-20. Doors open at 6 p.m., first act begins at 8:30 p.m.
