Jake Owen Uses Twitter to Play Prom Matchmaker
It’s good to know that if this whole music thing doesn’t work out (and we’re pretty sure it will) that Jake Owen could have a very prosperous career as a professional wingman. The ‘Alone With You’ singer showed off his skills on Twitter last night (March 13), helping one lucky guy secure a date to prom.
“Hey, @Larissa_Lewisss. My name is Jake. We’ve never met, but I have a question for you. Hope to hear from you, -J,” the Florida native tweeted around 9:30 PM.
Not 10 minutes later, the mysterious Larissa responded with, “@JakeOwen hey, Jake! What’s the question?” The singer didn’t wait long to answer, writing, “@TylerMiles14 wants you to go to prom w/ him. I said I’d ask u if he treated you nice.”
And in less than a half hour, Tyler was indebted to Jake, as his high school crush tweeted, “‘Yes, of course!!!! You can tell Tyler he has a date! ))”
“Tyler, you owe me. You’re welcome bro,” was the last post from the 30-year-old singer.
“Wanna give a big thanks to my dude @JakeOwen,” Tyler wrote after receiving Larissa’s answer. “He’s a class act. Ladies this is why country music is so great. Won’t forget this one J!”
Miss Larissa also showed her appreciation, tweeting, “@JakeOwen thank you!!! Seriously made my night, you’re the best! ”
As for Jake (who has a serious girlfriend, sorry ladies!), he’s currently on the road with a stop tonight in Austin, Texas. Get a full list of his concert dates here.
