Owen announces acoustic tour

– Jake Owen will launch the
Sitting on a Barstool tour next month, an acoustic tour.
"Sitting on a barstool, just playing a guitar and singing songs is how I first started making music and is what first led me to fall in love with performing," Owen posted on social media.
"Over the years ,I've been lucky enough to have the venues get bigger and to play for larger crowds on major headlining tours, but when I sat down to think about what was important to me this upcoming year, I really wanted the opportunity to go back to the beginning of it all. For me, it was that intimate connection with fans and the ability to really engage on a more personal level... it just takes me back to the real roots of where and why you started doing this in the first place. The strength of the songwriting and the magic of how that translates into a room with just a guitar and a song. I really can't wait to play these rooms."
Larry Fleet, who is on Big Loud, the same label as Owen, will open the shows.
The tour gets underway Feb. 14 in Des Moines, Ia. and ends March 28 in Mobile. Ala.

Either way, Florida native Jake Owen was a torchbearer for the genre, and it's rewarded him well - four albums and five Number One singles (remember "Beachin"?). His career has been on a more-or-less upward arc, with higher-profile tours and bigger hits each time out. ...
Jake Owen aims to satisfy all comers (that is, if the current country is your thing), but the individual pieces don't quite add up. The songs may stand up on their own well enough, but when all is said and done, Owen remains an artist without much of an identity or sound. Take, for example, Beachin', one of countless country songs about the good life. Like many of his counterparts these days, there's a spoken, neo hip hop rap part to it. The song is breezy, on the catchy side, but ...
