Jake Owen now does weddings!
The "Down To The Honkytonk" singer made a surprise appearance at a Sioux City, Iowa wedding reception to congratulate Alyssa and Brett Lorenz — some of his biggest fans who had just tied the knot.
But none of this would have happened if it wasn't for Brett's groomsman, Parker Rew. Before the wedding, Rew decided to test his luck and send Owen a direct message on Twitter asking if he'd stop by the wedding reception.
"I was hoping that he was going to be there and actually show up," Rew told KSFY News. Well, much to Rew's surprise, it's actually that easy to invite Owen to a wedding because he RSVP'd to attend the reception.
Once the groomsman received confirmation that the country superstar would make an appearance, he had to coordinate everything just right. "I was just a little nervous making sure everyone was coordinated and had the timing and had everything like that right," he explained. Luckily, everything went perfectly and the newlyweds were completely surprised by Owen showing up.
Even better? The couple's first dance happened to be one of Owen's songs! Rew posted a series of photos and a video of the special moment on Insta. "Having a surprise appearance by @jakeowenofficial (bad ***) was the icing on the cake for us all," he wrote. "Jake, thank you for being a genuine guy and helping pull off the surprise."
