I caught up with Vero Beach native Jake Owen and asked him what was special about his relationship with his father.  “My relationship with my father has been, like, an ever-changing kind of thing, so once I moved up here and honest to God put to use, like, all of the values and morals and things that he instilled in me as a kid — that he never realized that he did — and then was able to witness it from afar, goin’, ‘Wow, my son went off and did something that I know nothing about, I can’t tell him how to do it, he’s now successful.’ It completely changed our relationship to where he’s not so much a father figure anymore telling me how to do things. So my relationship with my dad has come so full circle that now he and I are like really, really good best buddies. The conversations I have with him, and the tone of the conversations are fun now.”
