In honor of the 52nd Annual CMA Awards later tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live! is featuring country music stars as the musical guests to close out each show this week. Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter, Jake Owen returned to the Mercedes-Benz Concert Series stage last night to perform his latest single, “Down To The Honkytonk.”

Host Jimmy Kimmel, joined the outdoor audience to introduce the country superstar and gave mention to his brand new country music competition show entitled ‘Real Country’. Owen gave a quick birthday shout-out to Kimmel before vocalizing the lighthearted, fun track. Joined by his six-piece band, the Big Loud Records artist had the entire crowd clapping and dancing along to every beat while strumming along to his own guitar.

Off camera, the singer-songwriter continued the outdoor mini-concert with his hit “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)”, along with “Made For You” from his latest self-titled EP, as well as “LAX” off of his 2016 studio album entitled American Love. The country star surely brought some Nashville vibes to Los Angeles.
Owen’s new show, Real Country, also premiered last night. The brand new television singing competition series hosted by Graham Bunn features an all-star panel of judges including Owen and country music icons Shania Twain and Travis Tritt. Each week, the world-renowned panel will be joined by a celebrity guest. The judges collectively handpicked each of the twenty-nine hopeful acts who will appear on the eight-episode season in which they will battle it out to become country music’s next breakout musical act. The winning contenders of each week’s showcase will score a slot to perform at Stagecoach Music Festival, along with $10,000. You can watch the first episode here and tune in Tuesdays at 10/9c on USA Network to watch the competition unfold.
