Since the world has slowly returned to some form of normalcy, the Tri-State has been fortunate to see a number of our favorite country artists add us to their list of tour dates. We've already had a couple of big shows come through with Eric Church late last year and Morgan Wallen in mid-April, and we still have Jason Aldean and Thomas Rhett coming to Ford Center in September and October, respectively. Now we have another show to look forward to not long after those two with the announcement that Jake Owen is bringing his Up There Down Here tour to the Owensboro Sportscenter in November.

Jake became an instant success after releasing his debut album, Startin' with Me in 2006. That album included three singles that all made it into the Top 20 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart. He followed that with his first number one hit, the title track to his third album, "Barefoot Blue Jean Night."

Since then, Jake has been nominated for several country music awards and was named Top Male Vocalist at the 2008 Academy of Country Music Awards, along with Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2012 American Country Awards all while continuing to crank out hit song after hit song, including his latest single, "Best Thing Since Backroads."

Listen to Win Jake Owen Tickets

You may not have to worry about either of those days because, we're giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets for free all next week (May 9th - 13th). Just listen to the Q Crew Morning Show each weekday at 7:40 to play a game we call, "Jacked-Up Jake." We'll take part of a Jake Owen song and jack it all up in some way. It may be a little distorted. It may be a lot distorted. Maybe it will have a weird echo to it. Or, maybe we'll play it backward. You get the idea. Whatever we do to it, if you're caller nine at 1-877-437-5995 and figure out what song it is, we'll hook you up with a pair of tickets to the show.

Good luck!
