Jake Owen Moonlights as Show Host
Jake Owen, who continues to find success on country radio, is also gaining popularity as a co-host, at least on ABC.com. After his successful stint as the host of the site's 'Nashville Nights' special show, Owen has been tapped again by ABC.com to host daily webisodes leading up to the CMA Awards.
Joined by RCA labelmate Chuck Wicks and former Miss Tennessee Ashley Eicher, 'The Countdown to Country Music's Biggest Night' will feature five minute segments each day from November 5 - 13, taking fans behind the scenes of events leading up to the live CMA Awards broadcast.
Nominated for the CMA's Vocal Event of the Year for his collaboration with Sugarland and Little Big Town on 'Life In a Northern Town,' Owen has certainly had a full calendar since the release of his debut album, 'Startin' With Me.' He has kept a full touring calendar, partnering with huge acts such as Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, Sugarland, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson and Brooks and Dunn. His first single off his second album (due in early 2009), 'Don't Think I Can't Love You,' is already in the Top 30 and climbing.
The CMA Awards air on ABC November 12 at 8 PM ET.
