Jake Owen  says he’s a very lucky man to have two fathers to lean on and get advice from when it comes to raising his and wife Lacey’s little girl.  Jake told Sony Music Nashville:  I’ll definitely be the guy that babies his little girl. You only grow up once, and I want my little girl to look back and think how great a dad I was. And I told my wife something, you know? When I first met her father, I was a bit intimidated by him, but also I was a bit turned off in the sense where I wanted him to be more friendly to me and buddy-buddy, and he was tryin’ to prove a point in a sense like, I’m not your buddy: I’m the father of this girl you’re about to marry. And I need to know that you’re gonna respect her, and I need to know that you’re gonna love her and take care of her the way that I have loved her and taken care of her, her entire life. And once I understood where he was comin’ from, and once he understood where I was comin’ from, we have hit it off, and he has become one of the great, great additions to my life that I really need. I mean, he does a lot of things different than my dad. And so I have two dads now. I have my father, and I have my father-in-law. And I get to learn from both of them in order for me to be the best father I can be.”
