Jake Owen has signed with Big Loud Records it has been announced.
The deal sees Owen reunited with producer Joey Moi, who produced the star’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night album and is one of the founders of Big Loud.
“I couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter in my career with Big Loud,” Owen says. “The passion for success that everyone has in the building is contagious. Combining what I already do with Big Loud’s expertise is exciting, and I am eager to get to work with Joey Moi again. We had great success in the past and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for all of us.”
The move sees Owen depart from RCA Nashville, which has been his label home since the release of his debut album Startin’ With Me in 2006.
“This is an unbelievable moment for all of us as true fans of Jake Owen,” label President Clay Hunnicutt says. “When we created Big Loud over two years ago, this is exactly the type of ‘home’ we wanted to create for someone like Jake, who is a unique and unparalleled entertainer and person, and who has a clear vision of who he is as an artist.”
Owen joins a roster that includes Chris Lane, Morgan Wallen and Jillian Jacqueline.
Florida native Owen recently joined Florida Governor Rick Scott to help in relief efforts for Hurricane Irma victims with a campaign he launched called Bring Back the Sunshine. He will unite with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith to perform at a Hurricane Benefit Concert, taking place on 19th November, at Donald L. Tucker Civic Center on the campus of Owen’s alma mater, Florida State University, in Tallahassee, FL. Proceeds will help communities in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the islands affected by hurricanes in 2017.
