Country star Jake Owen accepts invitation to play at Nashville Golf Open


Popular country music star Jake Owen will be performing on a slightly different stage, after he accepted an invitation to tee off at the upcoming Nashville Golf Open.
Owen, a keen golfer who came close to turning professional before his country music career took off, is currently an amateur golfer, but despite accepting the invitation to play, he will keep that status and compete on an ‘unrestricted sponsor exemption.’
Speaking about the invitation, Owen was delighted to receive it, and said that he was very honoured to have the opportunity.
“It’s so cool to have been awarded a sponsor exemption to play in the Nashville Golf Open,” Owen said to PGA Tour’s official website. “I am truly honoured to have this opportunity to play golf with guys whose work ethic I admire so much, like my buddy Brandt Snedeker.
“I know how hard everyone works to get to play in these PGA TOUR tournaments. I’m really grateful, and I can’t wait for this week in May 2018 to get here.”
In regards to country music, the 36-year-old has recently released a ‘Greatest Hits’ compilation, which features tracks from all five of his albums.
