Hours before Jake Owen was set to perform he was on stage doing sound checks but also signed several autographs and interacted with fans.

Washington, Mo. – Jake Owen was the first to perform on Washington’s newly built Pepsi Main Stage.  Owen shocked fair officials who said, “This is the largest crowd we have ever had for a Thurs. night performance and what a show it was.”

Before taking the stage Jake Owen gave QNHN an exclusive backstage interview.

Owen said, “My tour has been going really good man.  Everyone out here has been really nice.”

Several fair board members including Chairman Dale Westhoff said, “He [Jake Owen] is one of the nicest entertainers we have had.  I bet he signed over 100 autographs backstage before hand.”

Jake Owen took time to meet and sign autographs for the 2012 Fair Queen and her court.

Owen said, “I just try to be down to earth and put on the best performance I can.  I am extremely excited to be the first one performing on this newly built stage and it should be a great time.”

Jake Owen has also been the opening act for the Kenny Chesney - Brothers of the Sun Tour this summer

QNHN would like to thank Jake Owen for giving us a few moments of his time and speaking with us.  We wish you the best of luck and hope to see you back in Washington, Mo. sometime in the near future.
