Jake Owen is set to kick off 2013 on a high note and doing what he does best, which is take the stage and perform. The singer and brand new father -- daughter Pearl was born on Thanksgiving Day -- will headline the 2013 Discover Orange Bowl.

Owen will provide the entertainment as the halftime headliner on Tuesday, Jan. 1 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens in his home state of Florida. The Northern Illinois Huskies will take on the Florida State Seminoles in what is sure to be a thrilling matchup.

Country fans will probably love the halftime show as much as the happenings unfolding on the field during the course of the game.

The game kicks off at 7:30PM CT on ESPN so be sure and set yourself a reminder so you can tune in and take in the Owen performance.

It's a big gig for Owen, so something tells us he may not be partying too, too hard the night before and therefore nursing a hangover the next day. Whatever the case, we're sure he will turn in a killer performance, since that's what he always does.

It's also worth noting that his holidays as of late have been busy affairs. With Pearl making her grand entrance on Turkey Day and now a halftime performance on New Year's Day, Owen is on the go when most people are taking time off.
