“Growing up on the water, boating has always been a part of my life,” said Jake. “I can’t think of anything better than floating down the water, drinking a cold beverage and hanging with your friends. On this tour, I wanted everyone to feel that by the river vibe and having Discover Boating as part of the action every night is amazing!”
The on-the-water feel continues with Jake’s Top 25-and climbing party anthem “Beachin’” from his latest RCA Nashville album DAYS OF GOLD. The fun loving song is the follow-up to the vivacious “Days of Gold.”

Dierks Bentley’s Miles and Music for Kids Rocks Riverfront Park, Sets New Record

Dierks

Dierks Bentley has done it again. Sunday marked the eighth annual Miles and Music for Kids charity motorcycle ride and concert in Nashville, where Dierks led over 1,000 riders on a 40-mile ride from Columbia, TN to Riverfront Park.

The show itself featured performances by Jake Owen, Brett Eldredge, Chase Rice, Easton Corbin, Luke Bryan, Dierks and more. When you have a lineup like that, you’re going to make some money for the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. And make money they did: Over $307,000; a new record for the event.

The festival stayed true to its down-home roots, despite an estimated 10,000 people in attendance. The setup was fairly minimal (at least in comparison to the shows these guys typically put on) and the performances stayed very fun and casual.

Owen played four songs acoustically, including his smash Barefoot Blue Jean Night as well as a Hank Jr. cover. Bentley’s band was set up on stage to join Brett Eldredge and Easton Corbin, as they had the crowd singing along to their hits Don’t Ya and A Little More Country Than That respectively.

Then, all host Storme Warren had to say was, “Luke Bryan,” and the place went berserk. Bryan also played acoustically, and in true Luke Bryan fashion, was cracking jokes, sometimes in the middle of the song. He also took the time to tell the story of how he almost cut off his thumb cooking ribs on Halloween:

“It’s fun doing this with stitches,” he joked. “You always want to cut your thumb off on CMA week.”

Bryan and his guitar sounded just fine, but he ain’t got nothing on Jake Owen’s performance at BMI several weeks ago

Finally, Dierks took the stage, although the crowd had been catching glimpses of him periodically through the night running around back stage with his daughter. The ever-grateful Bentley wasted very little time talking, only thanking everyone involved and the audience for coming. He gave everyone what they came to see, performing hits such as Am I the Only One5-1-5-0Every Mile a Memory and Home.

Dierks also played a new song about partying “on the back porch” that was still a work in progress. Before he went into the bridge, he asked the audience to give him feedback on what they thought. Not surprisingly, it was met with massive applause, and even a beer tossed at Dierks from the VIP section.

In the middle of the set, Warren re-entered to present the check of $307,296 made out to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and signed by Dierks himself.

Jake Owen Celebrates Number One With Thousands of Fans, 9½ Fingers

Jake Owen

Jake Owen celebrated his most recent number one “Anywhere With You” last night in the grandest way possible: by throwing a free concert in BMI’s back parking lot. Now when you’re as hot as Jake Owen (in every way possible) and you announce a free show in Nashville, you get a crowd… a crowd larger than the capacity of Bridgestone arena.

These numbers are by no means official, but reports are saying there were over 8,000 people in the parking lot, and another 8-10,000 outside on roads and parking garages who couldn’t get in! Beforehand, Music Row looked like a madhouse, as though people were standing in line for… well, for a free Jake Owen concert.

Jake and a couple other people who graced the stage kept delightedly stating their awe at how many fans there were, and that they “had no idea this many people would show up.” Well Jake, it wasn’t exactly a secret. He took over the area’s biggest radio station – BIG98, who sponsored the show – proclaiming it  “Jake98;” plus he continually tweeted and Facebooked about appearances by Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Dierks Bentley. Having said that, it’s still mindblowing where all these screaming girls in sundresses came from. It’s almost as though there was… a free Jake Owen concert.

The big news, however, was that Jake played with 9½ fingers. According to multiple sources, he injured his right ring finger about a month ago, and it began bleeding Sunday during rehearsals. He went to the hospital yesterday (yes, the day of the show) to find out his nerves were dead, and the doctors had to remove the top of his finger. (To reiterate… this happened the morning of the show.) Not one to disappoint, he wrapped it up, threw on some nerve killer, and played with as much energy as ever. He even played guitar. Hashtag: #badass.
