Jake Owen has quite a few songs in his mix of albums about growing up and about his “hometown.” He is a huge fan of where he came from, which is Vero Beach, Florida. He even does a benefit concert in Vero Beach every single year (it was postponed this last year- 2016 due to Hurricane Matthew). So now there is a youth baseball field being named after Jake Owen in his honor and will opening in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida today (6/29). Jake couldn’t be more grateful or excited. He says,  “It’s something I’m super excited about, and I’m more than flattered that it has my name on it. But, I’m really proud ’cause all I’ve ever really wanted to do is just add to the betterment – for lack of better terms – of my hometown and my community, and try to give back to a community that has given me so much.”
