Country Star Jake Owen Surprised Fans In New York On Wednesday (08jul15) By Treating One Desperate Devotee To Free Concert Tickets And Joining Others For A Pre-gig Party.
The Beachin' hitmaker is on the road with music icon Kenny Chesney and Owen decided to help out one guy who bemoaned his lack of funds for missing out on Wednesday night's show in Canandaigua.
The man, named Matthew Wyckoff, took to Twitter.com to express his disappointment, writing, "Anyone wanna cosign a loan so I can afford tickets to see @jakeowen @ChaseRiceMusic @kennychesney tonight?"
To his surprise, Owen himself responded to the message, writing, "Screw that... I left you 4 at will call under your name. 1 for you, and 3 for your buddies. Have a blast", to which a stunned Wyckoff replied, "I owe you one. Thanks brother. kill it tonight."
Another fan invited the fun-loving singer to have a few drinks with her and her friends before the show, tweeting, "@jakeowen we're comin for you.... Meet us at the party bus in the parking lot for some tailgating?!"
Owen gamely agreed - and later shared proof of his unexpected appearance by livestreaming video footage of his antics with fans using the Periscope app.
