Jake Owen To Close Monster Year As Headliner Of The 11th Annual “CMT On Tour”

Love And Theft and Florida Georgia Line to Join Owen as Special Guests

NASHVILLE – August 20, 2012 – Rising superstar Jake Owen revealed
to fans in Detroit over the weekend that he will return to Motor City as
the next headliner of the 11th annual CMT ON TOUR, with special guests
Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line. CMT ON TOUR JAKE OWEN: THE
SUMMER NEVER ENDS 2012 kicks off October 10 in New York City, with
tickets going on sale Friday, August 24. For ticket information, visit

The tour comes on the heels of a monster year for Owen,
which includes two back-to-back, multi-week #1 singles with “Barefoot
Blue Jean Night” and “Alone With You.” Owen has performed to millions
of fans since his career launched, including a coveted spot on the
Brothers of the Sun tour this summer with superstars Kenny Chesney and
Tim McGraw. Owen first appeared on the CMT ON TOUR bill in 2007 as
special guest for Sugarland.

“Being the headliner of a tour is something I’ve been
dreaming about since I was in college, performing songs every Sunday
afternoon on a bar stool and playing for tips,” says Owen. “Headlining
the CMT Tour is really cool for me because I was the opening, opening
act in 2007, when Sugarland was the headliner and Little Big Town had
the middle slot. So now, to be headlining the 11th Annual CMT Tour, with
my buddies Love and Theft and Florida Georgia line, it feels very
surreal. I’m honored and I can’t wait to hit the road in October and
keep that feeling of summer going on THE SUMMER NEVER ENDS tour.”

“The CMT Tour has this incredible history of featuring
artists that have gone on to become superstars, capable of filling
stadiums and arenas, and now it’s Jake’s turn at headliner status,” said
Leslie Fram, SVP of Music Strategy, CMT. “Jake possesses an undeniable
star quality that promises to propel him to new heights amongst his
peers who have anchored the CMT Tour. We’re also thrilled to feature
up-and-coming acts Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line in this
year’s fantastic line-up.”

CMT ON TOUR launched in 2002 and has featured superstars
Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson,
Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland and Keith Urban.
