THE RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA (RIAA) has issued a GOLD certification to RCA NASHVILLE artist JAKE OWEN, for his single, "The One That Got Away."
This is particularly special to OWEN, as it is the first GOLD record that he has received for a song that he has written or co-written.
"If the excitement wasn’t already building just preparing to hit the road with friend JASON ALDEAN, it sure is now! I can’t thank Country radio and the fans enough for supporting my music. My band and I have been in rehearsals day in and day out getting our new show ready and I can’t wait to share it," said JAKE.
RCA NASHVILLE executives surprised OWEN with the news at SOUNDCHECK in NASHVILLE as he was rehearsing for the tour TODAY (2/20).
Also TODAY, our thoughts go out to JAKE's father STEVE, as he begins radiation treatments at the MAYO CLINIC after being diagnosed with cancer two months ago.
