JAKE OWEN stopped in the middle of a song in Minnesota on Saturday, to talk about his divorce.
He said, quote, “A lot of people maybe shy away from it, but I think I’m going to do some weird stuff. My wife and I are getting a divorce, and this is probably the hardest [thing] I’ve ever done in my life.
“To walk on stage every night, and try to pretend like everything’s awesome when it really ain’t always awesome . . . But thanks to people like you for singing along. You have no idea how much you guys lift me up every single night.
And I love my wife more than anything in the world. And I love my little baby girl, Pearl, more than anything in the world. If it wasn’t for both of them, I wouldn’t even be here right now to be a happy man.”
