“Entertainment Weekly” asked JAKE OWEN if he finds it hard to believe how strongly people reacted after he got his haircut. He said, quote, “No, I couldn’t believe it at all.
“I still think it’s weird . . . people asking me questions about it. I cut it over a month and a half ago and everybody still asks me about it, it cracks me up. My brother said, ‘You don’t need a publicist, you just needed a haircut.'”
They also asked for his take on all the different styles of country music coming out of Nashville. If they were trolling for some negativity, they didn’t get it.
He said, quote, “I’m loving it because I think it’s opening up the door for a lot of people. “[There’s] CHRIS STAPLETON and STURGILL SIMPSON. I love those guys, and they have so many fans that love what they do.
“And on the polar opposite, you have TAYLOR SWIFT or SAM HUNT . . . something that sounds completely different. They’ve got millions of fans as well. It’s a great time for country music in the variety that people have to choose from.”
