Country music artist Jake Owen is back in his hometown in Florida. He’s doing something he loves, which is bass fishing.

In a recent Instagram video, he’s excited about sharing what he loves with the person he loves. In the video, he’s taking his girlfriend Erica Hartlein on a ride in his hometown.

Owen Posts Instagram Video

The video, which is shot partially by a drone, captures the whole experience. Near the middle of the video, Erica ends up catching a fairly large bass while fishing on the boat.

The videography is well-executed with beautiful shots of the Florida water. He captures interesting shots of the boat cruising down from behind as well as the landscape around them.

The couple also showed off their best catch in another Instagram post.

According to Popculture, the newly divorced singer met Hartlein at a Restoration Hardware. She was an interior decorator who helped him pick out a couch. Eventually, the two went out for a beer and now have a little girl named Paris.

Owen’s most recent album is “Greetings From… Jake” with some of his hit songs like “Down To The Honkytonk” and “Made For You.” In 2012, Owen won Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist at the American Country Awards.
