0 SETLIST & VIDEO: Jake Owen’s Intimate Full-Band Acoustic Show For US*99!

When Jake Owen hit the stage at Miller’s Ale House in Chicago Ridge yesterday afternoon, he was joined by his full band (!), but it was going to be a show like no other.

All acoustic. No setlist. Well, he had one … he just didn’t follow it. He kicked it off by asking what to play. Someone shouted, “YeeHaw!” and off they went.

He told stories of Chicago being his favorite city to play in, EVER, and how US*99 had been there with him since Day 1. He told jokes, he took chances, he let his bandmates take lead. It was truly incredible.

We have SOOOOO many videos on our Instagram stories right now (both @US99 and @StylzandRoman) + I have a few for you below too >>>>
