Jake Owen Celebrates #1 for Gold Certified Smash "The One That Got Away"

 Party Hosted by BMI

Celebrating Jake Owen's third consecutive #1 smash – and first that he co-penned – "The One That Got Away," BMI hosted a lively party this afternoon (3/7) at the BMI office in Nashville, TN. Family, friends and members of the music industry community gathered to congratulate the RCA Nashville vocalist and his co-writers Dallas Davidson and Jimmy Ritchey, who celebrated their fourteenth and first #1 songs respectively. “The One That Got Away” has been certified GOLD and is featured on Jake's chart-topping album Barefoot Blue Jean Night. The RCA Nashville project also launched back-to-back, multi-week #1 hits with the nearly double Platinum-selling title track and the almost Platinum “Alone with You.” The American Country Awards 2012 Breakthrough Artist of the Year, who is currently on tour with Jason Aldean, is already Top 30 & climbing with his follow-up single "Anywhere With You."

    I hope Jake Owen reads these. I need his help. The One That Got Away relates to me too perfectly. I would love to win my "One That Got Away" back. I made him a giftbox of all his favorite things and our memories, including the Brother's of the Sun Tour ticket stubs where we missed your performance when our car broke down. We're graduating college and I've had a hard time being able to commit my full love and trust to him. I'm hoping the giftbox will help prove to him I can before we physically move in separate directions. I would love an autograph to give to him. That's all I ask.
