“[Golf is] a solitary sport and you keep your own score. You can cheat if you want. My dad always used to say that to me: 'Son, you can cheat if you want to but you're cheating yourself.' You have to face that. In music, it's also a solitary activity. You can sit down and write your own songs, but in a round-about way you can cheat yourself about how hard you're working. More than anything, you can't become great at golf without working really hard at it. It doesn't just come easy and neither does music.” ~ Jake Owen compares golf and music to Florida’s Palm Beach Post newspaper.
