Just after his song “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” hit No.1 on the Country Airplay chart, Jake Owen is ready to hit radio with another smash. The Florida native will return to radio with the rocking “Down to the Honkytonk.”

“I might not end up in the Hall of Fame/ or with star on the sidewalk in my name / or a statue in my hometown when I’m gone / nobody’s gonna name their baby’s after me / I might not go down in history / But I’ll go down to the honkytonk,” he sings in the chorus.

Owen has played the song while out on the road for his headlining Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour, which has also been extended for additional dates. Joining Owen for the dates will be special guests David Lee Murphy and Morgan Wallen.

“I really do believe that life’s whatcha make it,” said the singer in a press release. “That’s actually a line from my new single ‘Down to the Honkytonk.’ I’m so pumped to announce that the second leg of the ‘Life’s Whatcha Make It Tour’ will be starting this fall. I’m equally as excited about who is coming out on the road with us. David Lee Murphy is such a great guy and a writer on one of my biggest hits, ‘Anywhere with You,’ and Morgan Wallen is my label mate who just had a huge hit with FGL. It’s going to be an awesome way to wrap up such a great year.”

Tickets for the new dates go on sale beginning Friday, August 10 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
