Jake Owen To Perform In Jackson on June 15

Jackson, TN (February 26, 2018) -- Blue Cap Entertainment, in conjunction with the Jackson Generals, announced today that Big Loud recording artist Jake Owen's "Life's Whatcha Make It Tour 2018," will be making a tour stop to perform at The Ballpark At Jackson on June 15, 2018. Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, March 2nd at 10:00 a.m.

"I really do believe that life's whatcha make it," says Owen. "If you wake up feeling positive, there's a pretty good chance that you'll see things throughout the day in a positive light. I think concerts are like that: it's what you make it. People show up to have a good time and the artists on stage feel that too. A lot of my songs over the years have pointed to that idea. The fact that we're playing baseball parks on Friday and Saturday nights throughout the summer, when people are ready to get out, have a good time, and don't have to work the next day, is really cool. And, I'm so pumped to have Chris Janson and Jordan Davis on the bill with me. It's going to be an awesome tour. I'm fired up!"

Owen has partnered with CID Entertainment to offer three levels of VIP Ticket Packages on tour. VIP Ticket Packages include a premium concert ticket and exclusive VIP merchandise. Fans can also opt-in to join Jake before the show for a 'Good Company' experience where he'll perform two acoustic songs. Details on the Jake Owen VIP package can be found HERE.

In addition, Owen has been in the recording studio working with award-winning producer Joey Moi, who produced Jake's biggest hits to date: "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," "Alone With You," and "Beachin,'" to name a few. New music from Owen will be available on Wednesday, February 28th, with details coming soon.

TICKET INFORMATION: Tickets for this concert can be purchased starting at 10:00am on March 2, 2018 by visiting JacksonGenerals.com, calling 731.988.5299, or in person at The Ballpark at Jackson box office. "Center Stage" standing-room-only tickets will be priced at $69.50, while "Field" standing-room-only tickets will be priced at $39.50. "Reserved" seats in the stadium bowl will be available for $34.50.

7 Energy Saving Tips to Lower your Bills This Summer

By Renae Voda

3 min read

Did you know the typical US family spends AT LEAST $2,200 per year on energy bills? 

The warm weather months are upon us and it’s getting hot, hot, hot! While you’re having fun in the sun this summer, we want to make sure your wallet isn’t “overheating” due to the cost of keeping cool. 

See our top 7 tips for saving energy during the summer below: 

Turn up the thermostat

This one may sound blatantly obvious but it’s definitely the most simple way to use less power. Turn the thermostat up as high as you can to still be comfortable, especially if you leave town for vacation. If you have a smart thermostat, you can even control it remotely. Also, be sure to change the air filter regularly so your unit isn’t working overtime to compensate for the dirty filter.

Stay smart with your appliances

Be sure to keep the fridge doors shut when possible and allow hot items to cool to room temperature before placing them inside. We also know using the oven can certainly make your house feel like one, but by using a microwave instead (for certain dishes) you can heat your food without heating your entire home. Outdoor grilling is another great option to keep your indoor temperatures low.

Block out the rays 

Keep curtains, blinds and shades closed in order to keep the hot sun rays out of your home. Even your landscaping can be a strategic way to keep the sun away if you have trees planted on the south and west sides of your property.

Consider LED lighting

After you’ve blocked out the sun, you might find yourself using more lights in your home. Be cautious which lights you use because incandescent bulbs actually turn 90% of the energy they use into heat. Switching to LED bulbs can be a great way to save energy since they produce only half as much heat as incandescent ones. They also use 75% less energy and last 50 times longer than traditional ones.

Let the wind blow

Window, ceiling and whole-house fans are low-cost ways to stay comfortable and keep air circulating when you turn the thermostat up.

Solar power your laundry 

(Weather permitting) Skip the dryer and opt for an outdoor clothesline. Free energy from the sun is the best kind of energy! If you still need to run the dryer, it’s best to do it at night after the sun has set. Additionally, wash your clothes in cold water and be sure to clean the lint filter after every use. 90% of the energy used by your washing machine goes toward heating alone!

Scale back on pool filtration

If you have a pool: consider slowly reducing pool filtration time by 30-minute increments daily. Keep on reducing the time as long as the water appears clean. You may find you only need to run your pool filter six hours a day. Install a timer to control the length of time that the pool pump cycles on.

It’s true that warm weather can come with a price but by implementing these smart strategies, you can efficiently manage the energy use in your home.
