The spring version of Country Coastal Jam in Huntington Beach on Saturday (April 1st) proved another wildly fun time, which featured vendors, barbeque, beer, lemonade, promising up and comers like the Josh Abbott Band and Farewell Angelina, and local favorite Daniel Bonte and the Bona Fide.

Headliner and Florida native Jake Owen seemed right at home with the beach set-up, leading his set with the very appropriate “Beachin'” before continuing on with “Summer Jam.”

As the crescent moon rose in the clear sky, the crowd donned sweatshirts over the bathing suits they wore for this all-day event, while Jake kept the laid-back groove going with his feel-good tunes.

He included his jazzy new single, “Good Company,” as well as another new song, “Girls,” and an acoustic version of a song that he describes as his “favorite song on the new record.” It’s title, “LAX,” is a play on words, included on American Love.

He invited another Vero Beach resident named Emily on stage for a cover of Sublime’s “What I Got.”

– Insane time at the Coastal Country Jam with @jakeowenofficial last night! I grew up in Vero Beach, FL right next to his parents. Jake played a massive role in my inspiration to pursue music, and some of my best childhood memories were made over at that house and at his concerts in the high school football stadium. I remember being so nervous to play him one of my songs on my little pink acoustic guitar as a kid. Before my very first gig with @mackcappelen at riverside, he gave me a big blue guitar pick for good luck (heck yeah I still have it). Having the opportunity to jam on stage with an old neighbor in front of thousands was so surreal. And thank you for being the best videographer ever @brad_domke ☺😘
