Jake Owen Releases Jack And Diane Mini-Movie In Today’s Country News


After Jake Owen premiered his new video for “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” at an exclusive event at the CMA Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the mini-movie is now available to view online. Jake followed last Thursday’s video’s unveiling with a chat with director Justin Clough and the video’s stars, “Nashville’s” Jake Etheridge and MacKenzie Porter of the Netflix show, “Travelers.” The new clip follows an ‘80s-era high school couple as they navigate the challenges of love, baseball, college and their hometown. In addition to doing some singing, Jake also plays a waiter. Jake finished the evening at the Hall of Fame by performing the song, which was inspired by John Mellencamp’s hit, “Jack & Diane.”  He also sang Hank Williams Jr.’s “The Blues Man,” and the new tunes “Made for You” and “Down to the Honkytonk.” He kicks off his “Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour” next month with Chris Janson and Jordan Davis.

Canadian Shania Twain tells the Guardian newspaper that she would have voted for Donald Trump had she been eligible to vote. Perez Hilton claims she told the paper; “I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want BS. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation for not being that, right.”

Shania later posted: “I would like to apologize to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context,” she said in the statement. “I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President. I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician. My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.”

Carrie Underwood celebrated her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary with the following Instagram post; ”Today, we celebrated my parents’ 50th anniversary…We listened to stories of how they met and their first years together…the good Lord sure did bless them…and us! I think these crazy kids are gonna make it!”

Keith Urban tells People magazine that he knows all of the spoilers for the second season of Nicole Kidman’s show ”Big Little Lies”. , “Yeah… people are in for a ride. It’s going to be extraordinary. I wish it was coming out this year, instead of next year. She’s extraordinary. She’s come in and she’s so the character. She’s such a hard worker. You would think that if anyone can rest on their laurels, it’s Meryl, and she is just completely still on fire. She has a passion for the work. She’s an actor’s actor.”

Luke Bryan tells Extra that he gets hate mail because of the way Luke judges American Idol. “I wasn’t prepared for the fans to get so mad at me for people that we send home. But we have to send somebody home. We love them all!”

He claims people write: “I’m ripping up tickets to your concert, you’re awful, you’re a horrible human being!”

Kelsea Ballerini tells BuzzFeed that she became a country singer after Kelly Clarkson sent her a sign during a concert when she was 14 years old. “She had these two massive screens of her eyes above the stage, and so depending on the song they would cry or blink or wink or whatever. It was right when I thought I was gonna move to Nashville and be a singer, so I was super into it, and I remember I was watching her sing one of these songs and I was having a moment of like, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do with my life, this is it. I looked up and the eyes winked. And I was like, ‘Kelly Clarkson just told me that I have to be an artist’. I swear, true story.”

Jason Aldean tells CMT that he’s not perfect. “I think a lot of times if you’re an artist or you’re in the spotlight, people look at that and [think] ‘Oh, everything must be so perfect.’ If you do anything that’s not perfect, you get crucified for that stuff sometimes. Listen, I’m the first one to tell you I’m not perfect. I make mistakes all the time. The one thing I’m smart enough to do is to learn from them and not do the same thing twice if I do something wrong. My career and personal life have been like a rollercoaster ride–all crazy. To me, it’s about putting certain things behind you and looking down the road to better stuff, just a brighter day ahead. To me, that’s what it’s all about.”
