Jake Owen loves getting up close and personal with his fans on Twitter. He's actually used the social network to organize spontaneous trips to the lake in Nashville on his boat and hang out with fans in bars.
Some of the people on his team have tried to discourage this behavior though. "I've had more and more people tell me, 'Jake, you need to have some sort of mystique and mysteriousness to you,'" Jake tells Billboard. "I've never had that. I like being in the bar with people having beers. I don't want to be the guy hiding on the bus."

His new album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night, is now in stores and online featuring the hit title cut.
