Jake Owen closed out his CMT on Tour outing last Saturday with a benefit show in his hometown of Vero Beach, FL.  More than 6,000 fans came out to raise $125,000 for children's charities through the Jake Owen Foundation.  The proceeds will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and youth organizations including Autism Speaks and the Mardy Fish Foundation.

"A huge thank you to everyone in Vero Beach Saturday night for an awesome show and helping us raise money for such a great cause," Jake says.  "I can’t think of a better way to end the CMT Tour and this amazing year!"
