On Saturday night (January 26th), Jake Owen was given the St. Jude Angels Among Us Award during the 30th Annual Country Cares event in Memphis.
He was honored for his “13 years of consistent contributions to St. Jude.”
He said, quote…
“I’ve always believed that country music is songs for the family, songs for the people. Common folk…I believe that it just goes hand in hand with the mission for St. Jude, as far as lending a helping hand. I think you hear those types of sentiments in a lot of country songs. I think they’re just relatable.”
Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker are a few who have also received this award.
