WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH)– Never tell a country music star you don’t listen to country music unless you want to end up center stage at one of the their concerts. It happened to three Wethersfield women and they got quite a surprise when they met country music star Jake Owen.

Jake Owen has plenty of fans, but it was Nancy and Terri and their friend Ellen who were getting the star treatment. After Owen introduced himself poolside at Mohegan Sun, he invited the three to his concert.
“Like I didn’t think the tickets are really going to be there, [I didn’t think ] they are not who they say they are, like I just did not know who he was at all,” said Smith.
But the tickets were there. And, not only did Jake Owen give them great seats, they said he pulled them on stage in front the massive audience, even calling out Terri’s name on stage.
“I was just like oh my gosh, I cant believe this is really happening,” said Smith.
