Country singer Jake Owen is proud that his daughter has an even more famous “uncle.” It’s none other than singer, songwriter and producer Kenny Chesney.

Jake Owen Shares Cute Photo

In a Sunday Instagram post, Owen shared a photo of the two of them at a restaurant. 

“Pearl and her Uncle Kenny,” he captioned it.

Owen and Chesney go way back. Owen first opened for Chesney in 2006 on Chesney’s Road and the Radio tour. He has opened for Chesney multiple times since.

“Kenny’s fans come to his shows because they love his music and they relate to the feel of it,” Owen told CMT after opening for Chesney yet again. “But they also just come for the experience and to get some hang time with their friends. His music makes you happy. You go, and then when you leave, you’re like, ‘God, that was fun.’ Kenny started that whole thing, and I’m happy to align myself with that.”

Chesney’s Year Upended

Chesney had to postpone his Chillaxification Tour this year due to the pandemic. It was ultimately rescheduled to May of next year. 

“You can’t take risks without really understanding the consequences,” Chesney said in a statement announcing the tour had been postponed. “In times of uncertainty, I won’t take chances with those I love. I can’t imagine, as much as we love being out there playing for the fans, being able to do that through the worry our nation is experiencing.”

“We are figuring some of this out as we go, but I know people buy airline tickets, book hotel rooms,” he added. “And I wanted to try to give everyone as much time to sort that out as possible… Music is medicine when your soul or your heart need healing, but I don’t want my music to put anyone at risk.”
