Jake Owens Celebrates Barefoot Blue Jean Night Going Platinum

RCA NASHVILLE artist JAKE OWEN’s number one song “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” has been certified Platinum by the RIAA (RECORDING INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA), based on sales in excess of one million digital downloads to date. The song also recently held the number one spot for two consecutive weeks on the MEDIABASE Country Singles chart. In addition, JAKE’s new album, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” debuted at number one on the Top Country Albums chart.
Last night (9/20), SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE’s Chairman and CEO, GARY OVERTON, presented plaques to JAKE commemorating these three accomplishments.
“I had never received a plaque until ‘Barefoot’ was certified gold and that was maybe two months ago,” said JAKE. “Then, I couldn’t believe it when I got one for ‘Eight Second Ride’ going gold, which was a song I wrote when I was in college at FLORIDA STATE. And now, to be standing here with three plaques is just wild. I’m actually speechless. I’m just so grateful to so many people. I’m going to take a photo of these right now and send it to my mom and dad. They aren’t going to believe it.”
