If you're a fan of country music singer Jake Owen, he's set up a great concert deal for you. In the "Jake Owen's Days Of Gold Sweeps," you (because you know you're going to win) not only get two tickets to go and see him at a concert to be determined later (because he just released his new album, Days of Gold, and his tour itinerary isn't exactly set just yet), but you'll get two round-trip coach airfare tickets to said concert and a two nights-worth of hotel accommodations.

Who couldn't turn that into a mini-vacation?
Anyway, that's not all you'll get if you're the Grand Prize winner. Prior to the concert, you'll get to hang out while Jake Owen conducts the soundcheck. Not only that, you'll get a meet-and-greet with the "Anywhere With You" singer himself, a Jake Owen merchandise bundle, and one signed copy of the Days of Gold album. (Buy a copy or two of the album beforehand and he'll no doubt sign a few -- because country artists are known for their fan rapport -- for your guest and that friend you couldn't bring along).
And if you were watching the American Country Awards the other night, then you have a good idea what the Florida native is like in concert. Now, it is doubtful that he'll have Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top show up and play guitar at your particular concert (still, you never know who is going to show up at a live event), but it is safe to say he'll be performing "Days of Gold."
The sweepstakes (official rules found at CMT.com) is open to anyone 18 years or older as long as they reside in the contiguous 48 states of the U. S. (Sorry, Jake Owen fans in Alaska and Hawaii -- your state is not contiguous.)
The sweepstakes began on Nov. 25, before Owen released his fourth album, Days of Gold, in early December. The album debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 4 on the Country Albums chart this past week. The title track is his latest hit, marking his tenth appearance in the Top 20 on the Country Hot Song chart. He's hit the top spot twice with "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" and "Alone With You." Two other songs have topped the Country Airplay chart: "The One That Got Away" and "Anywhere With You."
The "Jake Owen's Days of Gold Sweeps" sweepstakes ends at midnight on Dec. 18.
