Jake Owen is taking it back to where it all began with the announcement of his 2020 acoustic Down To The Tiki Tonk Tour.
Kicking off February 14, the tour will make stops in eight cities through March 15. The intimate shows will feature special guest Larry Fleet.
“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. 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,” Owen shared in a statement. “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.”
Jake Owen recently shared an extended version of his “Homemade” music video, which chronicles his grandparents’ incredible love story. The 14-minute clip is set in the 1940s and features Owen playing the role of his grandfather. “Homemade” is the latest single from the Florida native’s critically acclaimed Greetings From…Jake album, which is available to stream and purchase HERE.
Tickets for the Down To The Tiki Tonk Tour will be available beginning Dec. 13.
