There’s nothing like having a good time down on Broadway so Jake Owen decided to raise a ruckus when it came time to film his new music video for “Down To The Honkytonk.” The rowdy video follows the singer as he struts around the honky tonk-filled street in Music City, with fans joining him in some of the city’s most famous venues.

Prominent throughout the clip are some of Nashville’s most iconic staples, like a Pedal Tavern, the back alley of Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge and bachelor and bachelorette parties aplenty!

“I love going down to the Honkytonks in Nashville and around the country. It’s all about a place to have beers with friends, a place to listen to good country music and catch up on great stories. The video was so much fun to make and why not have fun, right?” said Owen of the video directed by Justin Clough and Ben Skipworth.

Owen’s release of “Down To The Honkytonk” highlights another catchy tune to hit country radio, following his fastest-rising No.1 to date, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane).” The songs were featured on the singer’s self-titled EP. For the tracks, Owen has teamed up with Joey Moi, who produced some of Owen’s biggest hits, including “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Alone with You” and “Beachin.”

In addition to bringing the party down to Nashville’s Lower Broadway, Owen is busy sharing his hits with fans during the second leg of his Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour. The trek runs through September and October, before wrapping on November 3 in Pensacola, FL. Owen will also soon star in the USA Network’s new show, Real Country, which is on the search for country music’s next breakout star. The Florida native will appear alongside Shania Twain and Travis Tritt when the series debuts this fall.
