Jake Owen Fires Back At Tom Petty

YouTube

During a show in New York City last May Tom Petty took a pretty unpopular stand against modern country music. Saying that Country Music today is just “Bad rock with a fiddle”. Jake Owen has a few choice words for the rock and roll legend.

Jake said, quote, “It’s unfortunate that he’d make a ridiculous, uneducated comment like that about a format he’s not even a part of.  First off, why?  That bums me out a little bit, but everybody makes ignorant comments from time to time.” Owen went on to say ”My dad always said there’s an ass for every seat so if you don’t like it, get out.”

I can only assume Jake is the first but won’t be the last Country star to fire back at Tom Petty.
