You might know Jake Owen as the Country musician who sings songs such as “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “American Country Love Song,” and “Beachin’.” But, what you may not know, Jake Owen was going to be a professional golfer!
Jake Owen won his first golf tournament at age 15 and played for his high school team. After graduating, he was set to play golf for Florida State University. But, due to a very serious wakeboarding accident, he required reconstructive surgery on his shoulder and his golf dreams were put on hold.
To fill his time, he starting learning guitar after finding one in his roommate’s closet. Slowly, he taught himself to play and before you know it, he’s a Country Star! Last February, Jake Owen was partnered with PGA Golfer Jordan Spieth for the fourth consecutive year at the ATT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. You can take the Country musician out of golf, but you can’t take the golf out of the Country musician!
Jake Owen will be at the South Shore Music Circus on 7/19, tickets on sale now.
