Being a single dad on top of being a touring musician isn't the easiest job in the world, but Jake Owen seems to be handling both positions with ease. Owen shares custody of his 5-year-old daughter Pearl with his ex-wife, Lacey Buchanan, and when his little girl is with him, she is swept up in the life of a busy country music star.

On Jan. 22, Owen posted a touching photo of himself cuddling a sleepy Pearl on his tour bus following his Tampa, Fla. show. The sweet girl wanted to stay up all night to support her dad, but she just couldn't manage it.

"Post show on the bus with my biggest, little fan. She tried to stay up for the whole show," noted Owen on Instagram.

Owen's kept fans abreast of his daughter's growth on Instagram, posting cute photos of the two of them in various adventures, as well as a shot documenting her 5th birthday in Nov. 2017. Owen also announced in November that he would be joining the roster of Big Loud Records, a move that reunited him with Joey Moi, the producer of his breakthrough album, 2011's Barefoot Blue Jean Night.
