Jake Owen takes country fans on a walk through Nashville’s famed Tootsies in his latest music video for “Down to the Honkytonk.” A fitting location for the song’s video, the world famous honkytonk is prominent throughout the three-minute clip.
Filmed in Nashville and directed by Justin Clough and Ben Skipworth, Jake recruited local fans in Music City to take part in the music video. The singer was the clip’s main attraction and he shared the spotlight with plenty of bachelorettes, pedal taverns, a biker gang and fellow honkytonk patrons.
“I love going down to the Honkytonks in Nashville and around the country,” Jake says in a statement. “It’s all about a place to have beers with friends, a place to listen to good country music and catch up on great stories. The video was so much fun to make and why not have fun, right?”
“Down To The Honkytonk” features Jake in good spirits as he’s dressed as Elvis Presley and throwing drinks back with those in attendance at Tootsies. The feel-good song highlights the singer’s fun side and is the follow up single to Jake’s fastest-rising career No. 1 hit to date, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane).”
When he’s not at the honkytonks, Jake is in the studio working with producer Joey Moi on his upcoming studio album. The project will be the follow-up to 2016’s American Love and the first since signing with his new label, Big Loud Records. Additionally, Jake is gearing up to join Shania Twain this fall in the new televised talent competition “Real Country.” The series is set to premiere on USA Network as the two singers try to find the next big country star.
