Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Jake Owen
The country superstar takes our Q&A!
What's the wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?
It's a picture of my daughter. I keep it on my phone!
When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?
A cold beer.
What's the one word you are guilty of using too often?
What is the last thing you searched for on Google?
A refrigerator or some sort of plumbing faucet. I'm remodeling my house right now, so that's what I do in my free time. Google refrigerators.
Who is the last person that called or texted you?
Jaren Johnston from The Cadillac Three. We talked about the fact that he smells like patchouli.
What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?
It was probably trying to get a passport to go to the Bahamas and standing in line for 15 minutes at a local DMV so they could then tell me that they only do passports on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Then the clerk told me that I had to come back the following day which I did not want to do so it was really awkward trying to keep my cool. She had nothing to do! She could have just signed the piece of paper. That was it!
When is the last time you went to a theater?
I think the last time I was in a movie theater was when I rented one out for a bunch of my fans. I don't watch much TV or movies. I never watch it unless its like a football game or if I'm at the gym and on the treadmill because I like to keep up with the news. I like to know what's going on in the world.
What's the first CD you bought?
The Black Crowes, Shake Your Money Maker
What is the one food you cannot resist?
Watermelon. Straight up watermelon, off the vine, eat it with my grandad and spit the seeds. My grandmother gets pissed because three days later vines are growing in the front yard.
What music are you currently listening to?
I listen to so much! Probably the new Chris Stapleton record.
What drives you absolutely crazy?
People that use the word "bae." It's so annoying.
What was your first online screen name?
I think it was like, Jakarusky? That was my AOL chat name when I used to chat it up with random people.
What's your favorite emoji?
I'm the smiley face with sunglasses on. That's my style.
Pick one: Kittens or puppies?
New York or Los Angeles?
I have to say Los Angeles. The weather is better.
Comedy or drama?
Bacon or Nutella?
That's easy. Bacon all day!
Coffee or tea?
'80s or '90s?
80's. It was just like the last breed of glam rock. I liked the expression of character more in the 80's than the 90's.
Beyonce or Rihanna?
Hannah Montana or Lizzie McGuire?
And finally: tell us a secret.
I'm a computer nerd. I can fix a computer when its dead and take it apart and fix it. Not many people know that about me.
