It’s official… Jake Owen has joined “the TikTok.”
The country singer-songwriter made a dramatic TikTok debut, insisting that “no one is making me do this” as he reads cue cards throughout the nearly one-minute clip: “Hi, my name is Jake Owen. I’m now on the TikTok. I am doing this in my own volition. I promise, no one is making me do this, or forcing me. You can follow me @jakeowen. And my new song, ‘My Boots Miss Yours,’ is out this Friday. Go get it. Stream it, please.”
“Just wanna go home now,” Owen adds at the end of the TikTok. “I have a family.”
TikTok users dropped laughing face emojis in the comments, though some also asked, “You good Jake?,” and told him to “blink twice if you need help 😂” Others simply celebrated that they’re officially one of Owen’s OG TikTok followers.
Owen teased fans earlier this week when he posted a photo of boots on Instagram, writing in his caption: “This ain’t a booty call.. it’s a new music announcement 🧨Big week ahead.🧨” Days later, he confirmed that his next song, “My Boots Miss Yours,” would release on Friday (January 27).
