Jake Owen Credit Bank Teller For His Success

Published On May 25, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

When Jake Owen first moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he thought a good place to start making industry connections was his local bank.

“I had a little money from playing acoustic gigs that paid in tips…enough to pay for my first month’s rent. More than just putting money away in a bank, I wanted to start a relationship with people in town.”

Jake shared his career plans with his bank teller, in hopes that she could help him, or tell somebody who could. And that’s exactly what happened. She asked to hear his music, and the next thing he knew, he got a call that eventually led to where he is now.

And yes, that special teller is still his banker. Jake commented with a laugh…”She switched banks, and I went with her. She’s my go-to girl!”
