Jake Owen Gives A 'Beachin' Birthday Gift

RCA NASHVILLE recording artist JAKE OWEN gave three CONNECTICUT moms the best birthday gift of the year this past FRIDAY (7/11).
According to PEOPLE, OWEN overheard the women speaking together at a hotel pool and saying they did not like Country music. OWEN and his personal trainer were relaxing before his show that evening in UNCASVILLE, CT and decided to strike up a conversation with the ladies.
"We had a spa day for all of our birthdays then it was margaritas at the pool," said ELLEN CASEY, one of the trio of women. "We bonded because my son is in a band ... and JAKE was saying how the best thing about what he does for a living is how proud his parents are of him."
OWEN bought lunch and drinks for the ladies and informed them there would be tickets for them at will call for his show at MOHEGAN SUN that night. True to his word, OWEN left three floor seats at will call for the group of friends.
At his show that night, OWEN told the crowd about the ladies and their conversation at the pool earlier in the day. "Where's TERRI?" OWEN asked. "I was eavesdropping at the pool today and overheard someone say they hated Country music." He then asked the ladies to join him on stage to enjoy the remainder of the show from his onstage tiki bar.
And TERRI SMITH, the friend with the least interest in Country music, has now changed her opinion. "I am especially a fan of JAKE OWEN - a huge fan," said SMITH. "It was a weekend we'll never forget!"
OWEN's "DAYS OF GOLD TOUR" continues across the US throughout the remainder of the SUMMER.
