Jake Owen. Jake Owen. Jake Owen. Seriously. I love this dude, his music, his brand and his performances. I’m trying to count the number of times I’ve see Jake – Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival (x2), ToadLick Music Festival (x2), The Block in Ft. Walton, Orange Beach at The Wharf and I feel like I’m missing another one.
Everyone that knows me well knows that Jake Owen is my absolute favorite male artist – as I say my Favorite, Favorite. There’s not denying that my friends don’t know this as well. So when I found out that Jake was performing at the Amphitheater at the Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama with the opening acts of Parmalee and The Cadillac Three I made sure I got my tickets as soon as they went on sale through his website/Fan Club. His concerts feel like Christmas to me — nervous with my stomach all in knots in anticipation.
Before I even bought tickets, I signed up for a Meet and Greet through Jake’s website, but I didn’t get chosen. Whomp Whomp…. However, my best friend Cassie did – THANK GOODNESS!!!
He was really genuine during the Meet and Greet. I told him that my favorite concert was his concert at The Block in Ft. Walton and he thought about it for a second and then started laughing because he remembers our photographer, that just took our photo, getting sick from eating Oysters that night and for me to go ask him about it. Ended up being a pretty funny conversation.
The Cadillac Three and Parmalee did not disappoint. Jaren, Neil and Kelby from The Cadillac Three completely rocked their performance – the uniqueness of their sound makes it extra special. I saw them perform earlier in the year at Toby Keith’s Bar in Orange Beach and knew that I had to see them again.
So ultimate goal: work for Jake Owen. I want to be in charge of his VIP/Meet and Greets or work on his publicity. However, I know he has an amazing publicist already.
