Jake Owen makes waves with an exclusive concert at Atlantis Paradise Island
Country hitmaker Jake Owen took “Beachin'” to the next level on Saturday (August 20) when he traveled to Atlantis, Paradise Island for a concert in the exquisite Caribbean destination.
Kicking off the first-ever “Atlantis Country Week,” Owen’s performance was part of the resort’s Music Making Waves outdoor concert series at Casuarina Beach.
Only Atlantis guests could attend the exclusive concert on the beach and country now had the opportunity to experience this one-of-a-kind event.
Music lovers vacationing in the most famous resort in the Bahamas could access the concert at the touch of a button, as a simple call to the concierge was enough to obtain tickets for the event. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds from the concert were donated to the Atlantis Blue Project Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to save marine life and their amazing habitats in the Bahamas and around the surrounding Caribbean seas.
Guests were treated to a Jake Owen concert like no other as the country chart top 10 brought his arena-ready performance and production to Atlantis Paradise Island for an intimate concert experience.
As island breezes cooled the August air, guests made their way to the outdoor stage, which was just steps from the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and just meters from the five unique resorts of Atlantis Paradise Island. .
Taking the stage shortly after 8 p.m., Owen was barefoot and all smiles as he opened his set with his latest No. 1 single, “Best Thing Since Backroads.”
Waving to the crowd with his trademark smile, the Florida native went on to perform hits like “American Country Love Song”, “Homemade”, “Down To The Honkytonk” and his next single, “Up There Down Here”.
The more intimate outdoor setting allowed Owen to interact with the audience throughout his performance and truly made for a memorable evening for all involved.
Only by slowing it down for songs like “Made For You” and “Alone With You,” Owen’s energetic set was the perfect way to cap off a fun-filled day of vacation.
Before the show, the country star admitted agreeing to perform at Atlantis was a no-brainer.
“An excuse to come to the Bahamas is always a good thing,” Owen told Country Now moments before taking the stage. “We have been very busy this summer. So even a getaway of a few days is enjoyable. I think just to wrap up this summer, coming here and celebrating this number one song is really cool.
Although it may have only been a quick trip due to his busy schedule (he’s in the middle of his headlining Up There Down Here Tour), Owen brought his fiancée, Erica, and their daughter, Paris, at the seaside resort.
Atlantis Paradise Island is after all the perfect place for families. Set on nearly 200 acres of wide-open spaces, the sought-after destination offers diverse dining options, endless shopping, and five miles of white-sand beaches and tranquil waters. Not to mention the countless activities, including the Aquaventure water park with several pools, slides and one-of-a-kind river rides, and the largest open-air marine habitat in the world.
Atlantis Kids Adventures (AKA) also offers families for children ages 3-12, an arcade, and CRUSH, a teen nightclub.
The resort is equally exciting for adults without kids, as countless amenities are available, including the tranquil 30,000-square-foot Mandara Spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, and wellness programs. Plus, there’s an award-winning 18-hole golf course, a thrilling casino and nightly entertainment.
As if that weren’t enough, there’s also Dolphin Cay, a 14-acre marine habitat where guests of all ages have the chance to interact with dolphins, including several rescued from Hurricane Katrina, and sea lions. .
With multimillion-dollar upgrades planned throughout 2022, Atlantis Paradise Island is raising the bar with more improvements to come, including redevelopments of The Beach Tower and Royal Tower rooms, as well as a reimagined casino.
Music lovers looking for a vacation should look no further as the Music Making Waves outdoor concert series continues on August 27 with GRAMMY, ACM, CMA and AMA winning quartet Little Big Town and Sheryl Crow, nine time winner of the GRAMMYs, on October 8.

Where to stay: The Cove is Atlantis Paradise Island’s luxury hotel with 600 luxurious suites. The views are absolutely stunning. Guests of The Cove have access to the adult-only pool and scenic The Cove Beach. The Aquaventure water park is steps away, and shuttle service to the bustling Marina Village and casino is offered at no additional cost.
Where to dine: For a romantic evening, try the Seafire Steakhouse. The dry aged doorman was large enough to be shared by a couple and was to die for. For families, Carmine’s was a perfect choice. The chicken parmesan was *the chef’s kiss*. *
What to do: In addition to enjoying the five miles of white sand beaches, countless swimming pools, daily activities and Aquaventure, discover Dolphin Cay. The Dip ‘N Discover is a dolphin interaction you will never forget. For those with kids ages 6-10, the Jr Ultimate Trainer experience was absolutely amazing. The experience lasted four hours and included one-on-one interactions with dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles and other marine animals, as well as photo uploads, a commemorative t-shirt and lunch.
