Jake Owen Celebrates Success of ‘Alone With You’ With Party in Nashville
On Tuesday afternoon (June 19), Jake Owen celebrated his recent chart-topping hit, ‘Alone With You,’ in Nashville. Owen was surrounded by his friends, family and industry peers, who all showed up to support the singer as he continues his steady climb to superstar status.
The party took place at Nashville hotspot, Cabana, where partygoers munched on pizza and enjoyed an assortment of cocktails while waiting for the ceremony to get under way. This was the second No. 1 party for Owen in recent months — back in November the newly-married was on hand to light candles in the name of his smash ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night.’
Owen and the song’s three writers, Catt Gravitt, JT Harding and Shane McAnally, met with press prior to the party’s start, and talked about the reason they were all gathered in the room and in a celebratory mood.
“I just knew the minute I heard the song that there was something that needed to be heard,” Owen told Taste of Country prior to the start of the party. “It was one of those very vulnerable tunes, coming from a guy’s perspective, especially. It was something that really hadn’t been done that much or that often. It was something that just struck a chord with not only females, but a lot of guys.”
“I felt like it was a good transition, after a fun summertime song (‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’),” he continued. “It was a good song to kind of lead into the winter months where everybody kind of holds up in their house and gets cold and lonely.”
But Owen was far from lonely at the party Tuesday, as Cabana was packed wall-to-wall with people who love and support the singer, including his lovely new bride and many A-list songwriters, like Jon Randall, Lance Miller, Dave Berg and Phil Barton, to name a few.
Owen is hoping to keep the No. 1 streak going with his latest summertime hit, ‘The One That Got Away,’ which he co-wrote along with 2011 BMI Songwriter of the Year and Peach Picker Dallas Davidson, as well as Jimmy Ritchey.
