Coors Light Birds Nest at Waste Management Phoenix Open
Country music fans definitely know a thing or two about having a good time -- and Thursday night's concert by Jake Owen inside the Coors Light Birds Nest at the Waste Management Phoenix Open was no exception.
Everyone was in a celebratory mood by the time the superstar singer/songwriter stepped onstage barefoot, as he's wont to do. Beer was everywhere to be seen as the crowd drank, danced, and sang along to every song. Even Owen had his go-to beer up on stage with him.
The show started off with a bang, as Owen's first two songs were his current radio hits "Anywhere With You" and "The One That Got Away." He immediately showed his fun side during the latter song by breaking into a bit of Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl" while discussing how there have been songs written about that girl that got away.
Apart from "Jessie's Girl," Owen and his band performed such covers as Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby," Sublime's "What I Got," and even the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. The crowd went crazy when Jake Owen started rapping to both "Ice Ice Baby" and the Fresh Prince theme. (Who'da thunk he could spit game?) He got really into it, too, which brought on the laughs from his fans.
