On Friday, country singer Jake Owen announced on Twitter that he and his wife Lacey Buchanan are divorcing. Just a day later on Saturday, he took to the stage to perform at WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn., and during his performance he opened up to the audience about what he's been going through.
Owen played an acoustic version of Garth Brooks' "The Dance," he paused and got candid with fans. "A lot of people maybe shy away from it, but I think I'm going to do some weird stuff. My wife and I are getting a divorce, and this is probably the hardest s--t I've ever done in my life, to walk on stage every night, and try to pretend that everything's awesome, when it really isn't awesome. You know what I'm saying?"
