Jake Owen’s Stageit Show Raises Over $1000 For St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Jake Owen

Jake Owen kicked off CMA Awards week with a special gig.

On Monday night, he took his kitchen sessions live by performing his first Stageit show. All proceeds went to “The Jake Owen Foundation” to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Owen played a 45-minute set for fans all across the country straight from his house in Nashville.

As I said in a previous post, Stageit is this great and innovative website that allows artists to stream performances from anywhere in the world and bring them into their fans’ homes. Fans purchase tickets using the site’s currency called “notes.” Owen did not set a ticket price. He just asked for donations and whatever people were able to give.

The set list consisted of a mix of hits and fan favorites including his platinum song, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Love Ya, Love Ya, Love Ya,” and his current single, “Alone With You.”

Owen shared that he just filmed a video for his new single, chatted about his dogs as he brought them on camera, talked about Halloween, and gave a shout-out to some of his friends. He also thanked a fan from the Stageit chat room for serving in the military. Then, he called another fan on the phone who was the top tipper of the night and played a song at her request.

The show raised over $1000 dollars for St. Jude. Owen tweeted:

HOLY COW!!!! THANK Y’ALL SO MUCH!! We just raised over $1,000 dollars for St. Jude in 45 minutes by sitting in my kitchen and singing songs on StageIt.com.

It was a great night for an even greater cause. The show was awesome and I enjoyed every minute of Owen’s smooth vocals and charming banter. I look forward to another Stageit show from him in the future.

Thank-you Jake Owen, Stageit, & fans for raising money for such an amazing charity.

Jake Owen: Stageit Show Tonight To Benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Jake Owen is taking his “Kitchen Sessions” live. He will be playing a Stageit show tonight to raise money for the “Jake Owen Foundation,” which benefits St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The show is set to start at 11:30 p.m. EST. Ticket prices are whatever you can give.

If you have not heard of Stageit yet, it is this awesome website where artists play shows from their living rooms, coffee shops, or anywhere in the world and stream it live through Stageit’s website. You create an account on the site, and buy a ticket for the shows using Stageit‘s currency called notes. Ten notes equal a dollar. Most shows cost on average around 50 or so notes. Sometimes, they are even free. And sometimes, they ask for a donation like Owen is doing with his show later tonight.

I have always been a fan of Stageit, and I am excited for Owen’s show. It is for a great cause. Grab your tickets. They will be going fast.
