He was so excited to finally get his hands on the fan-voted statuette that he posted a picture of him holding it on Twitter, and then promised to share the honor with his fans who made it possible.
He did just that Saturday night at his show in rural Clarke County, Virginia, his first headlining show his getting the award delivered to him. He showed off the statuette from stage during his show and then invited fans to come by the merchandise table after his set to pose for pictures with him and it.
More than 100 fans (including me) took advantage of the offer, and the photos are posted on his new website, http://jakeowen.net under MEDIA.
