Jake Owen successfully held his 9th annual hometown charity event in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida.
The weekend included a kickball tournament, golf outing, silent auction and fishing tournament. Additionally, Owen performed a sold out concert alongside Jimmy Buffett, Chase Rice, Matt Stell, Larry Fleet and more.
"I can't believe Jimmy Buffett was gracious enough to come out ad perform for this year's event, but he did! It was unreal sharing the stage with him in my hometown," Owen tells People.
Owen's 6-year-old daughter, Pearl, also made an appearance at the event. "Pearl is growing up so fast," Owen says. "I love having her out and seeing how the community comes together each year."
Additionally, Owen's twin brother, mom and dad were also a part of the weekend. The country singer's younger daughter, 5 months, Paris, was too young to come this year, however Owen says he can't wait to have her join one day.
Owen has been able to raise over $1.6 million to date for local charities through his foundation. The Jake Owen Foundation is committed to helping people, in the places they call home. Owen explains, "It was important to us to have a nationally active charitable organization, with a local approach. It really is about having a homemade approach."
Owen recently shared the music video for his current single, "Homemade" off his Greetings From...Jake album. He took a personal approach for the video and chose to portray the real-life love story of his grandparents.
Owen starred as his own grandfather on a set that looks like it's based out of the 1940s. The nostalgic clip shows the small-town couple's relationship from the very start, featuring footage of them dancing together, laughing together, exchanging letters and more.
Towards the end, the couple receives some unexpected news that could potentially change everything. Fans are left to wonder what's next as the video ends with text reading, "To be continued..."
