Jake Owen is stripping it back in 2020.
Jake announced he will headline an acoustic tour—dubbed the Down to the Tiki Tonk Tour—that kicks off on Feb. 14 in Des Moines, Iowa. The eight-date tour will make additional stops in Green Bay, Mobile and more.
Jake will perform acoustic renditions of songs from his recent album, Greetings From…Jake, including “Homemade,” “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” and “Down To The Honkytonk.” Larry Fleet will serve as support. Tickets go on sale on Dec. 13.
“Sitting on a bar stool, just playing a guitar and singing songs is how I first started making music and is what first led me to fall in love with performing,” says Jake. “Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have the venues get bigger, and to play for larger crowds on major headlining tours, but when I sat down to think about what was important to me this upcoming year, I really wanted the opportunity to go back to the beginning of it all. For me, it was that intimate connection with fans and the ability to really engage on a more personal level… it just takes me back to the real roots of where and why you started doing this in the first place. The strength of the songwriting and the magic of how that translates into a room with just a guitar and a song. I really can’t wait to play these rooms.”
