Thanksgiving turkey has us all excited, especially Jake Owen. The country singer showed his excitement and his dance moves as he shopped for his holiday meal.
On a Twitter video, you can see Owen moving and grooving as he does his grocery shopping. It sounds like his daughter is the one recording as we hear giggling in the background. You can see Owen dancing in the store’s frozen section, obviously eager to get home and eat his turkey dinner.
Jake Owen’s Special Reason to Celebrate
Turkey isn’t the only reason Owen celebrates Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving of 2012, he and his girlfriend welcomed his daughter, Olive Pearl Owen. Born in Nashville, Owen’s daughter weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces, and 19-and-a-half inches long. She was given the middle name Pearl in remembrance of Owen’s godmother, who passed away in July of that year.
On Thanksgiving of 2016, Owen posted a heartfelt tribute to his daughter on Facebook.
“Happy Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for so many things in my life. My career, my friends, my band and crew, my family and most importantly this little girl. Have a safe and wonderful holiday season. I hope you get to spend time with the ones you love.”

Now eight-years-old, his daughter has made many appearances on Owen’s social media. Including the time she broke hearts with her adorable letter to her dad.
Jake’s Birthday Message to his Daughter
In response to his daughter’s birthday, Owen delivered a beautiful message about his daughter’s special day via Instagram.
“The greatest gift ever given to me was the love of a daughter,” Owen starts off in his tribute.
“8 years flew by in a flash. We are now 8 years away from her hopping in a car and saying, “see ya later, Dad!”…” he adds. This is unreal to think about! Eight years have passed for Pearl – and in another stretch of the same time she’ll be legally driving cars. Shouldn’t that be impossible?? I’m so proud of this little girl. She is so kind, loving and absolutely hilarious.
“Did I mention she’s wayyyyy more of a rockstar that her ol’ Dad? I’m cool with that. She opened my eyes 8 years ago today, to a world I never knew existed. She made me a father and that’s the coolest “gig” I could ever have. (See what I did there?)”
“I love you Pearl,” he ends. “I can’t wait to see what the next 8 years have in store for us. Just slow it down a little bit okay?! Happy 8th Birthday.”
