This weekend, Jake Owen played a charity show for the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Foundation. He was joined by Demi Lovato, Cole Swindell and the Band Perry as they performed at Dallas’ AT&T Stadium.

After the show, Owen kept looking back at a picture his friend Cameron Gott had taken of him onstage and remembered what his career was like before anyone knew his name.

“This is a long way from the Riverside Cafe in my hometown… I remember when my fingers would hurt because I’d practice the guitar on old wore out strings,” Jake wrote. “I remember packing up my 4Runner every night/morning at a different bar just the right way so all my PA Speakers, guitars, and beer soaked wires and cables would fit perfectly. I’d then count to see how much tip money I’d made, in order to grab a Whataburger on the way home.”

It was a full-circle moment for the singer.

“Tonight, I had the amazing experience and opportunity to play at [AT&T] Cowboys Stadium and my friend [Cameron Gott] snapped this picture,” he continued. “I’ve looked at it a million times and I honestly feel so lucky to be doing this. I shared the stage with [Demi Lovato, Cole Swindell and the Band Perry] and we raised a lot of money for @american_heart and @american_stroke_foundation with @wearebeautykind. I’m so thankful for this amazing life.. I’m still he same guy/kid. I still love playing music, and I’m still gonna eat a Whataburger tonight post show here in Dallas.”

I bet that Whataburger tasted amazing.
