Jake Owen will go “Anywhere With You” on an “Eight Second Ride” since these are definitely the “Days of Gold” for the rapidly rising country singer.

You might say this is definitely not “The One That Got Away” and Jake is probably in “Heaven” and hollering “Yee Haw” since he climbed behind the wheel of his beautiful new Corvette Stingray.

If you’re not a country music fan, we’ll take a moment to explain that we took the titles of some of Jake’s songs to make the sentences above.

Owen recently became the latest fan to buy one of the 2014 Corvettes – an Arctic White Z51 edition with Adrenaline Red interior, black wheels, and Carbon Flash-painted rear spoiler and outside mirrors.

“I’ve always been a big fan of Corvettes,” Owen told Nashville’s WSMV-TV. “I was just never at a point in my life where I could afford one.”

With his songs climbing the charts consistently over the past few months, Owen definitely has the jangle in his pocket to buy the Stingray. (By the way, the story on countryweekly.com says that Owen now has one of the most expensive cars on the road – more than $100,000 – but Corvette aficionados know that the Stingray is actually one of the best sports car bargains around. Owen’s car, a Z51 Coupe with a 3LT interior, probably listed for around $70,000.)

Like many other Corvette owners, Owen took full advantage of the experience of buying a new Stingray and visited the Corvette assembly plant and the museum in Bowling Green, where he even played a gig on April 24.

Owen even got a chance to look at one of the hottest tourist attractions around these days – the sinkhole in the middle of the National Corvette Museum.

“In a roundabout weird way,” Owen said, “it’s part of the history now. It’s unfortunate it happened, but it’s also a part of the story now. It’s the story of a Corvette.”
