SALAMANCA — The outdoor events venue at the Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino will rock all weekend when Jake Owen and Peter Frampton take the stage on two consecutive nights.
Country music superstar Jake Owen will perform his hits on Friday night, June 28, at 7 p.m. Well-known for his high-energy performances and laid-back style, Owen burst onto the country music scene in 2006. Since then, his songs have resonated with listeners and audiences everywhere.
On his way to success, Owen has opened for big country names like Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Little Big Town, Keith Urban and Jason Aldean.
According to USA Network, Owen has had seven No. 1 singles to date — the two-time platinum anthem “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” platinum-certified hits “Beachin’,” “Anywhere with You,” “Alone with You,” “The One That Got Away” and, gold-certified “American Country Love Song.” His fifth studio album, American Love, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart.
Most recently, he signed a new label deal with Big Loud Records, reuniting him with producer Joey Moi. Owen’s debut single for Big Loud, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” is the fastest rising single of his career. His new single, “Down To The Honkytonk,” is rapidly climbing the Billboard Country Airplay charts.
Born in Florida, Owen had no plans to be a country singer because he thought his future was as a professional golfer. Unfortunately, his golf career was put on hold indefinitely when he was seriously injured in a wakeboarding accident that left him unable to play competitively. But it turned out to be life-changing when he put down his golf clubs and picked up a guitar.
Slowly learning chords and songs, he taught himself how to play the guitar. He began writing his own songs and performing at local establishments in his native Florida. In 2005, he moved to Nashville and signed with RCA, then released his debut album, Startin’ With Me, later that year. His fifth album, Greetings from … Jake, was released in March 2019.
In an interview with KTTS-FM radio, Owen said he will be featured in his first acting role on the big screen soon. He will have a role in “The Best Friend,” which was scheduled to begin filming this past February.
