Jake Owen is stripping it down. The “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” singer is hitting the road for an acoustic tour in 2020.
The 8-date trek, dubbed the Down To The Tiki Tonk Tour, will kick off on Valentine’s day (Feb. 14) in Des Moines, Iowa, taking Jake through Indiana, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Alabama. Jake will grab his guitar and barstool for the intimate run.
“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,” Jake said. “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.”
