Jake Owen Selling Restored Jeep Used in Music Videos
If you’re a Jake Owen fan and happen to have $23,000 lying around, you could be the proud owner of the 1990 Jeep Grand Wagoneer used in several of the artist’s music videos. Owen had the baby blue and wood-paneled vehicle posted on Craigslist recently.
According to the listing, "This Jeep is fully restored and fully functional. It's been featured on Du Point Registry due to the quality of it's restoration by Unique Automotive. It has also been in multiple music videos by the owner, Jake Owen."
Owen tweeted the post with a sentimental caption about saying goodbye to the ol’ girl.
From the photos, it’s clear Owen cares a lot about the special vehicle, having put a lot of TLC into it over the years. In a Keep it Local video produced by the Yellow Pages, Owen says its sentimental value goes back a long way.
“My dad had a white one, and a green one…and the cool thing about those Jeeps are they have this bench seat, and when you’re a kid riding around with your dad it was so cool if you could be like, right up next to him,” he remembers.
The artist has been climbing the charts with his summer jam “Real Life,” for which he recently released the fun, crazy music video, fitting for the laid-back tune. It’s the lead-off track for his upcoming fifth studio album, and has reached No. 18 on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts. He’s also been weighing in on the concept of “bro country,” saying he’s tired of the whole debate.
“It’s so annoying,” the star tells Rolling Stone Country. “I get so tired of hearing these people ask, ‘So what do you think of bro-country?’ I don’t care.”
Owen is slated to appear at WE Fest in Minnesota in early August, and has been chosen for the second time to host the 2015 ACM Honors Sept. 1, which recognizes special honorees and off-camera winners for the 50th Annual ACM Awards.
