Hi folks! I want to just bring you up to date with some of the cool and exciting changes going on. Most recently, we worked with a great company to design a new look for America’s Country. We’ve made all the changes and are super excited about this! We’ve had some great looking representation of our brand up to this point but this is a major improvement. If you’re around and still see any of our old logos still out there, please hit me up and we’ll get it taken care of.
We’ve also made some more improvements to our audio. We truly strive to be the best sounding Hot Country Hits station in the world! Thanks to great technology like digital processing from Stereo Tool and music playback and scheduling from Station Playlist, we are very confident that we will achieve our goal! Click the highlighted items above to find out more about these great tools.
To help support us, there are many ways. You can always visit and purchase products from our sponsors who have their ads on the air. You can click on banner ads on our web sites (please disable your ad blocker tools!). And you can make a donation with our PayPal links. Now, we added an Amazon.com shopping widget on our main website. The cool thing here is that you make the same purchases at the same prices from Amazon, and they pay us back! All of this is designed to be available for you but not be obnoxious and get in your way. We appreciate all that you do to support America’s Country. Thank you all!
Thank you all for your support and for listening to America’s Country!
Hey friends! I truly hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season! And if you found some time to listen to our 100% Christmas Music selection, I really appreciate it! New Year’s Day is almost upon us and 2013 will be filed away! That means a few things.
Firstly, America’s Country will be 3 years old!! Happy birthday to us!! We officially launched on New Year’s of 2011 and it’s been a whirlwind ever since!
Second, we’re kicking off 2014 right with Hot Country Hits played the way you love ’em! Hot and Fresh! We will have all our programming return and will feature a new countdown show that I’ll tell you more about very soon! Returning is our signature Zero-Talk Four-Play, four of the hottest songs in a row at the top of the hour. Also back is The Bobby D Show, The Music City Minute, Nashville’s New Country and The CD-Tex Radio Show!
We are incredibly excited to continue to develop our station and find new ways to keep getting better! 2014 holds a lot of promise! We’re looking at things that will enable us to be more reliable and have less down time. We’re always looking for ways to make the music sound better. We’re studying ways to increase our presence on social media and how to leverage that presence to make America’s Country even better than it is.
You will continue to be the major source for ideas and suggestions! Your feedback and comments will be taken seriously and any idea is a good one. We believe that the best station isn’t about what I think or what some giant corporation thinks, but only what you think. Please continue to provide your thoughts and take our polls when we publish them. Your input is invaluable! Thank you!
Keep checking back for updates regarding the new countdown show and more updates and announcements!

A carefree day on the water in Vero Beach … Wipe out … Mangled shoulder … Lead to one of the most poignant new beginnings for Jake Owen.
A wakeboarding accident severely injured his shoulder and squashed his dreams of becoming a pro-golfer. He knew he had to reassess, redesign his future. Lucky for us, music is the direction he chose to focus his interest and hard work! He picked up a borrowed guitar and learned to play it. He started out playing covers in bars, once he had a few original songs he tried them out – good response – more of him followed! He signed a record contract when he was 24 with Sony/BMG Nashville. Jakes 1st CD was released in 2006 – his 3rd Barefoot Blue Jean Night was released in 2011. Easy Does It came out in between in 2009, and housed “8 Second Ride”, his 5th top 25 on Billboard”s Country Hits.
In 2011, the release of ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ was another new beginning, beginning of people starting to really know and understand his music. The self-titled single was Jake”s first #1 hit! Released in April 2011 it steadily rose up the Billboard country charts securing the top spot in September 2011. The song finished with the 2nd highest ranking for the year. He was touring with Keith Urban ~ Up next opening for the epic Brothers of the Sun tour.
He has had new beginnings in his private life as well …. In 2012, he asked his girlfriend Lacey Buchanan to marry him. He did it in his own “Jake surprises his fans” style. He proposed on stage in his hometown of Vero Beach on April 7, 2012. They got married a month later again in Vero Beach FL… yup, many new beginnings ahead here as well!
Jake appreciates his fans and shows it by including them in things like his proposal. He interacts with them on a personal level on twitter, sometimes even responding physically to special requests. By having impromptu Stageit concerts, back to back both with encores! He is just him on those nights. He shares with the fans as if he were talking to friends. Once he talked about a life mentor named Pearl. What a special person she was in his life, he then shared when she passed. He has introduced us to Lacey and never hides his feelings, his love for her. The relationship he is building with his fans has helped launch him to the next level in his career they will be there for the duration.
His current single “The One That Got Away” is steady on the charts at 25 now and it is slowly making its ascent upwards. Could it be another #1 hit single for Jake?
September 25th, Jake will be releasing an EP “Endless Summer”. October 10th, he kicks off his headline CMT on tour ~~ Summer Never Ends ~~ in New York City. This is his first headlining tour and he is bringing ‘Love and Theft’ and ‘Florida Georgia Line’ along for the ride. Are there more new beginnings in store for Jake? With the tour along with the fact that Jake and Lacey expecting a daughter in November I imagine the answer is yes!
