Country Stars’ Real Names: Jake Owen
Real Name: Joshua Ryan Owen
Jake Owen has really only been "Jake" for a very short time. When he began his music career in 2005, there were several other new country singers named Josh (Turner, Gracin) for him to contend with, so he decided to go by Jake. Clearly it worked, as seven years later he's still going strong, having just released his third and most successful record to date.
