In December, Jake Owen performed at the Kevin Harvick Foundation's 6th Annual Dinner, Auction and Concert for his friend, NASCAR champ Kevin Harvick.

Well, during the ceremony Harvick surprised Jake with news that they're opening a Youth Development Park named in Owen's honor.

The park will be built in Jake's hometown of Vero Beach, Fla. and expected to be open to the public in Summer 2017.

The baseball field will be built with proceeds from the Kevin Harvick Foundation event in partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr., Foundation, which builds character and teaches critical life lessons to disadvantaged youth through baseball and softball.
