Bits And Pieces: Jake Owen & Joe Nichols

Jake Owen reacted to his 10th career Number One hit, “Best Thing Since Backroads,” on social media with a video to fans, country radio, and his team on Monday night (August 1st). The song claims the top spot on the Mediabase chart this week. Jake said in part, “I have 10 #1 songs – I can’t even wrap my head around that. It took me seven years to get my first #1, and to think all these summers later we’re still cranking them out. To the fans – oh my gosh, the fans. You are the best thing since backroads, you have given me this life, I love you guys. You make country music what it is and I’m proud to be a part of it.”

Joe Nichols will return to Fox & Friends‘ “All American Summer Concert Series” on August 12th to share music from his recently released album, Good Day For Living. The concert series is free to the public and will take place on Fox Square in the heart of New York City. The album’s title track climbs into the Top 40 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart this week.
