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.

Georgia native Thomas Rhett tackled a childhood dream over the weekend, playing at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium. The talented newcomer performed to over 66,000 at his favorite team’s home turf as the first act on Jason Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN TOUR Saturday night (4/13).

“To come back and play on this field where I grew up cheering on the Bulldogs was a dream come true! And I got to return the favor and sing with some of the UGA football guys. I think we should both probably stick to our current career paths,” joked Thomas Rhett.

Las Vegas, NV: (March 30, 2012) – General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s star-studded roster of Country music artists are teaming up with Feeding America to Outnumber Hunger in a national initiative that helps fight hunger in local communities. Outnumber Hunger will help Feeding America secure up to 15.6 million meals for local food banks to assist the one in six Americans who struggles with hunger.

According to the USDA, an estimated 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, making the issue a growing reality in every community. By simply entering codes at OutnumberHunger.com, Americans can make a difference in their local communities at a time when it matters most.

“Hunger is a year-round issue but it can be especially critical in the spring, so Feeding America food banks need help now,” said Vicki B. Escarra, President and CEO, Feeding America.  “The combined reach that General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s artists bring to the hunger crisis will help provide critical resources at this key time.”

This powerful group of partners is using its collective voice to rally Americans for the cause. Codes will appear on millions of specially-marked packages of General Mills products to give people the chance to help Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of their local food banks.

“As a leading food company, no cause is more important to us than the hunger issue,” said Cheryl Welch, Director, Outnumber Hunger at General Mills. “We’re thrilled to give people the chance to make a difference in their own communities through Outnumber Hunger.”

Specially-marked packages of General Mills products will feature an Outnumber Hunger code, as well as favorite Big Machine Label Group artists like Rascal Flatts. More than 10 General Mills brands, including Betty Crocker, Green Giant, Totino’s and Cheerios, will participate. Entering the code at OutnumberHunger.com helps Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of a local food bank. Participants enter their ZIP codes, and meals will stay in or near the area.

Big Machine Label Group artists also will offer select special codes on Facebook and Twitter that help Feeding America secure five meals for local food banks. Big Machine Label Group artists who are encouraging participation include Multi-Platinum-selling superstar artists Rascal Flatts, Reba, Martina McBride, and The Band Perry as well as established chart-topping acts Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and newcomers Sunny Sweeney, Edens Edge, Ella Mae Bowen and Thomas Rhett.

“It takes a Big Machine to Outnumber Hunger, and we have an opportunity to make a huge difference in local communities,” said Scott Borchetta, President and CEO, of Big Machine Label Group. “That’s why we’re thrilled to come together with our artists, General Mills and Feeding America to help the hunger issue in a significant way. Together we can Outnumber Hunger.”

Additionally, the Outnumber Hunger partners have created an educational video with Rascal Flatts that highlights the issue of hunger and shows how anyone can get involved to help Feeding America. It will air during a Rascal Flatts theater event in New York City and in over 600 movie theaters across the country on the night of April 5. Tickets to the movie theater concert event can be purchased online at www.fathomevents.com.

“Our fans have always been strong supporters of us and our families,” said Joe Don Rooney, Rascal Flatts. “By being involved in Outnumber Hunger, we hope to provide that same support for those who may struggle with hunger. We’re grateful to have the chance to spread awareness of this important cause.”

General Mills will donate $0.65 to Feeding America—enough to help secure 5 meals on behalf of local food banks—for every code entered. To make a difference in your local community with Outnumber Hunger, visit www.OutnumberHunger.com.
