NEW YORK, NY Tuesday Aug.1.2006 / -- Jake Owen has been having a great summer already opening up shows for Kenny Chesney, and his national recognition gets a booster shot this week, when he guests Wednesday morning on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"When I left that barstool [in the Florida bar where he used to play]...there's no way that the thought would ever cross my mind that I was gonna be on Good Morning America...or have a record out two years after I left," he says.

Jake Owen's debut album, Startin' With Me, arrived in stores on last Tuesday (July 25). Led by the Top 20 hit, "Yee Haw," the album contains a total of 11 new songs, all of them written or co-written by Jake. "I'm opening myself up," he admits. "Everybody gets to hear and see what Jake's all about."
