Jake Owen brought some serious twang to the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ indoor stage on Tuesday (Feb. 21). He performed the customary pair of songs, ripping through ‘Alone With You’ and ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night.’ The performance was a good enough reason to stay up late, but in case you missed it, you can watch footage of each song below.

For his late night TV appearance, Owen looked quite the part of a rocker, with his bright red guitar and his Steel Panther t-shirt. In case you’re not immediately familiar, Steel Panther are a throwback, glam rock, ’80s-style band. Perhaps the band will see that Owen sported their shirt and approach him about a duet? Stranger things have happened.

We love that Owen was able to start off his performance on a slow note and then turn up the rowdy factor when he closed out the show. It demonstrated his musical dynamics, which has garnered him many fans in his career.

When Owen stripped off the guitar to perform ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,’ the Kimmel lobby was transformed into a country bar. The audience was clapping and singing along, and Owen even gave a shout out to Jimmy Kimmel himself mid-song. He certainly upped the country ante on the stage.
