A native of the south Arkansas Delta, Aaron Owens began his journey into the music industry through the hard work instilled in him from time spent in the logging and farming community. The relation between country music and his blue-collar upbringing spawned his musical aspirations at an early age and an honest love and respect for the music that would play over the airwaves and into his soul.

Aaron took part in his very musical family at an early age and began to follow his mother around to small venues and was immediately taken by the atmosphere and set out to pursue a direction that would lead down roads he never dreamed of.

From the south Arkansas mud, to the west coast and beyond, Aaron has turned a small town dream into an underground musical revolution including performances with such artists as Blake Shelton, Gary Allan, Chris Young, Billy Currington, Dwight Yoakum, Jeff Bates, Gretchen Wilson, Aaron Tippin, John Michael Montgomery, the Legendary Willie Nelson and many others. Along with these opening performances, Aaron has become a favorite at festivals, casinos and country music venues across the United States.
