After announcing across his social sites just days before, Country star Jake Owen threw a capacity crowd to Nashville’s BMI Building on Monday, Aug. 18, for a free concert and “beach party.”

Highlights of the evening included a pre-show presentation by music industry insiders to mark Platinum sales of Owen’s single “Beachin’,” which he also performed; a duet with songwriter Travis Meadows on Owen’s new single “What We Ain’t Got”; Mike Posner joining in on “Cooler Than Me”; plus surprise appearances by Lee Brice, Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay and Sonia Leigh.

Old Dominion and The Cadillac Three delivered opening sets.

Following up on last year’s block party last year, the capacity crowd gathered for the talented singer’s free concert, where he performed a dynamic set, including his Platinum-certified, No. 1 summer anthem “Beachin’.” Music industry insiders were also on hand to present Jake with a plaque for his “Beachin’” milestone pre-show.
