Jake Owen remembers the days before he had a child [daughter Pearl] - and how he’d observe his crew members being so ready to get home to their kids. He admitted he once didn’t understand that excitement - but now that he’s been a dad a few years, he totally gets it.
Jake says the worst thing now though is when he has to miss big events, like a daddy-daughter dance.
"There was a daddy-daughter dance, and it was the same [day] that I had a show booked. I hate that I have to miss those moments."
