Jake Owen Hitting the Lake This Labor Day Weekend

Sony Music Nashville

Jake Owen will be celebrating Labor Day Weekend with some time out on the lake. As the spokesman for Discover Boating’s initiative to get people out on their water, Jake couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

He says of his weekend plans, “I’ll probably go have a couple beers with some friends, and I’ll probably try to put the boat in the water for the first time in a while.”

Jake likes to play hard, but he’s no stranger to hard work, either. He credits his parents with instilling a strong work ethic in him as a child. Jake says they always led by example when it came to getting the job done.

Says Jake, “I think that’s what’s helped support me through all these years is, even in the hard times, you know, just kind of pushing ahead.”

Jake captures a bit of that working-man point of view in his latest hit, “Real Life,” now climbing the country chart.
