Jake Owen Announces 2018 Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour, New Music
2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Jake Owen. The singer has announced his upcoming Life's Whatcha Make It Tour, and revealed when fans will hear new music.
The tour sees Owen performing in baseball stadiums across the country, including AT&T Field in Chattanooga, Tenn., Dickey-Stephens Park in Little Rock, Ark., Regions Field in Birmingham and more. Owen will bring Chris Janson and newcomer Jordan Davis along as support acts.
Janson's fast-rising career recently landed him his second No. 1 single with "Fix a Drink," and a headlining show at the Ryman Auditorium where he was invited into the Grand Ole Opry by Keith Urban. Davis' current single, "Singles You Up," is currently in the Top 10 and climbing on Billboard's Country Airplay chart.
Owen's Life's Whatcha Make It Tour kicks off May 18 in Tennessee and continues through the fall before ending on Sept. 22.
"I really do believe that life’s whatcha make it. If you wake up feeling positive, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll see things throughout the day in a positive light," Owen says in a press release. "I think concerts are like that: it’s what you make it. People show up to have a good time and the artists on stage feel that too. A lot of my songs over the years have pointed to that idea."
Tickets for the Life's Whatcha Make It Tour go on sale March 2 at 10AM local time.
Owen has been in the recording studio working on new music, some of which will become available on Wednesday (Feb. 28). So far there are no specific details on what exactly fans can expect, but he did reveal in late 2017 that he's been working with frequent collaborator Joey Moi, the producer behind three of his No. 1 hits; "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," Alone With You" and "Beachin.'" Details on the new music are expected to be released soon.
