Jake Owen had a pretty good week. In the same week, two of his singles were certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and catchy single “Eight Second Ride” (from “Easy Does It”), both received the gold honors on the same night for digital sales of the singles. “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” is almost guaranteed to soon be a platinum single for the singer, as it’s already sold over 620,000 copies of the song alone. The single is still number nine on Billboard’s country songs chart.
Jake’s the special guest for Keith Urban’s American leg of the “Get Closer Tour.” Fans who choose to pre-order his album will get an instant download of “Alone With You” and a live version of “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You” if pre-ordered early. You can catch him this weekend opening up for Keith Urban in Atlanta and at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
